A brief history
Lured by the fertile land, the GRAFFIGNA family recognized the potential for great winemaking in San Juan, Argentina, and left their home in Italy to realize their dream. Established in 1870, GRAFFIGNA has the honor of being the oldest winery in San Juan and the third oldest winery in all of Argentina. The large plains and excellent soil make Argentina an ideal place for grape growing. The first to sell branded wine in Argentina, GRAFFIGNA now has a healthy export business to more than 20 countries worldwide. Most of GRAFFIGNA’s vineyards are located 700-1,500 meters above sea level on steep slopes that receive nourishment from an underground water supply. Because of its proximity to the Andes Mountains, the region has unique microclimates.
