Winery & Vineyards

At the heart of Algodon Wine Estates we finf the Winery, surrounded by vineyards and the golf course and the Sierra Pintada and Andes on the horizon. The wine portfolio includes: Malbec, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Bonarda, Chardonnay, Malbec Rosé and Gran Reserva.

We designed the winery with the sole purpose of producing top quality wines, which are made from the highest standards. Our facilities include modern stainless steel tanks and concrete, an underground cellar which provides ideal temperature and humidity, and the finest French oak barrels for wine aging. These factors combine to ensure our ability to produce year after year the best wines.

The winery is located at 800 meters above sea level, in a structure that contains three main sections: the area of Development and Conservation, La Cava, and the Laboratory and tasting room, featuring a large view of our vineyards and the golf course, with the Sierra Pintada in the background.

La Cava (cellar) has a capacity to store more than 71,000 bottles.

The farm has 300 hectares in a stunning and incomparable scenery. The varieties planted are Cabernet Sauvignon, Bonarda, Malbec, Syrah, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Verdot.

New Vines
The planting of new vineyards began in 1997. With a total of 51 hectares, trellises is 2 meters tall, with three wires and a planting distance of 3 meters between rows and 1.5 m between plants. The conduction system is "pythons bilateral cordon", where pruning is different from old vines, as all the grapes are available on wire load at the same level, through which flow both strands of the plant.

Thus the sun exposure of clusters is much more open, work will also facilitate quality improvement as thinning, deshooting, leaf and speeds up the harvest. The yields range between 8,000 and 12,000 kg / hectare in accordance with the types of wine grapes that will be used. The mechanical and manual work culture are similar to low vineyards.

Irrigation was performed by traditional or drip system. The latter allows to regulate the water needed by the strain in a timely manner but with the difference that the humidity is maintained steadily, achieving a unique balance. The results in terms of quality of grapes obtained are optimal. Through this system are also performed fertilization operations. These vineyards are protected with anti-hail net, Granbuille system.

Old Vines
It is low trellises in 1946. They're made of 21 hectares, and formerly were called "French vineyards. 7 varieties were planted to grapes in the form of interleaved, but harvested individually, looking for quality, flavor, tannins and fruit varieties Malbec and Cabernet and Bonarda color and structure.

We also have the white variety is Semillon, special fruity wine. They are planted at a distance of 2.2 m. between rows and 1.2 m. between plants, with a driving bass with three-wire trellis.

The irrigation of these vines is done through the traditional system, inherited from the Indians that allowed huarpes transform the desert into oasis for medium and small canals to reach the place where will the irrigation water by gravity, flooding the planting area.
