About the Producer

Endowed with a solid professional background and a vast experience in viticulture, the Domingo brothers, Osvaldo, Gabriel and Rafael, have successfully put together the pecularities of altitude, grapes and soil. Located in the province of Salta, 8 km west of Cafayate, in North Yacochuya, their winery lies on the Andean mountainside, overlooking the Calchaquí Valleys. Ranging from 1,600 to 2,300 meters above sea level, the 60ha of vineyards boast a special microclimate with more than 300 sunny days, scarce rainfall, and a wide temperature range, all of which allow for excellent grape growing conditions.

Torrontes, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tannat are some of the varieties planted, respecting the ecological identity and personality of each terroir. The grapes are hand-harvested, and carefully selected before the destemming and  crushing processes. After that, they are sent to small concrete or stainless steel tanks for fermentation and maceration. Each lot is vinified separately.
