This remarkable vineyard is situated above 3,000 feet elevation in Luján de Cuyo. The soils of this terroir are very poor and permeable and are composed of silty clay loam with a layer of boulders 3-6 ft. deep. Irrigation is traditional, with water from the Andes Mountains, and the climate is mild and arid. The proximity of hills prevents the risk of frost since, in spring, cold air currents descend from the Mendoza River bed. The selection massale vines planted in 1923 are simple Guyot pruned and yield small, compact grape clusters. The wine from this vineyard is notable for its floral bouquet, good acidity and round, elegant tannins.
