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
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.
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.
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.
