A brief history

The history of Escorihuela Gascón's winery begins in 1884, with the arrival of Don Miguel Escorihuela Gascón to the country. He was a young Spaniard who dreamed of owning his winemaking establishment, a goal he was able to achieve four years later when he acquired 42 acres of land and laid the foundations of one of Argentina's world-renowned wineries. Reflected in the unique personality of its labels, the founding premise of Escorihuela Gascón has been, from the very beginning, to produce high-quality wines. Located in Godoy Cruz, over time, the historic winery building became part of the city center's landscape. The building itself is a legacy of that era. The winery has unique attractions, including a bicycle polo field and a traditional bocce court where players may enjoy a game with a glass of wine in hand. Two spaces inside the winery provide unique experiences to indulge the senses: the wine shop, which offers an exclusive selection of labels, and Francis Mallmann's 1884 restaurant, which invites visitors to live a unique gastronomic experience hallmark of this internationally renowned chef.

Escorihuela Gascón also owns 150 hectares of vineyards in Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo, including a winery exclusively built to produce our Premium and Ultra-Premium wines. Surrounded by vine plantations and the immensity of the Andes Mountain Range as a frame, this estate also includes a polo field of unique characteristics. It is renowned for being the scene of numerous and famous polo tournaments.

From the very beginning, innovation has been another one of Escorihuela Gascón's founding pillars. This is why it became one of the first wineries to certify organic and biodynamic vineyards. This certified vineyard is located in El Cepillo, La Consulta, San Carlos, in the renowned Uco Valley. The 64-hectare estate varies in altitudes that range from 1,200 to 1,300 meters above sea level. This location ensures a cool climate, wide temperature range, and good sun exposure. All along the vineyard, the soils of alluvial origin may vary in texture from sandy-loam to rocky rich in calcium carbonate providing unique characteristics. Given its altitude and almost no human intervention, this wild estate accurately reflects the biodynamic philosophy. Distinguished by their elegance, mineral character, and significant aging potential, this is how top-of-the-range wines are born.
