About the Producer
Bodega Andana is a tiny winery owned by Carlos Pulenta’s son-in-law, Fernando Podesta. The grapes for all wines except the Torrontes come from Finca Los Alamos, a family farm owned by Antonio Pulenta. The 30 year old vineyards are located 1000 meters above sea level, at the foothills of the Andes. After a manual harvest in 18 kg boxes, the grapes are transported to Pulenta’s Vistalba winery where the wine’s production is overseen by Vistalba enologist Alejandro Canovas. The total production is around 5000 cases.
