Founded in 1895, Bodega Norton is one of the most awarded Argentine wine brands in the US. Bodega Norton combines a modern, state-of-the-art facility with rich heritage and old world charm. The estate is one of the largest in Mendoza with over 3,000 acres of land and over 1,750 acres under vine allowing Bodega Norton to control quality from the vineyard to the bottle.
Situated in the foothills of the Andes mountain range, the estate boasts an average vine age between 30-80 years old across its five vineyards. These old vines help to drive richness and depth across the entire portfolio.

Dedication to quality has also garnered the estate over 150 international awards. With over 125 harvests under their belt, the winery continues to push the limits with innovative approaches in the vineyard and cellar all aimed at achieving stellar quality. The five estate vineyards of Bodega Norton combine to give the winemaking team a broad palette of varietals and terroirs to create a unique portfolio of wines.
