Winery & Vineyards

The winery was built in the year 2002 on a family farm in the heart of Vistalba (Luján de Cuyo). The architecture style is "Criollo" or argentine native style. This blends perfectly into the classic Mendoza terroir. Following the heritage of his ancestors and the traditional winemaking that the first italian and spanish inmigrants brought to Argentina, this is where Carlos Pulenta developed his personal undertaking of blending wines involving members of his family, advisors, enologists, and a highly-esteemed group of people who knew his land well.

Grapes are harvested manually and when off the vine their temperature is reduced in a cooling tunnel. Stems and berries are selected twice. These grapes, are gently placed in a concrete fermentation tanks, where, after three to four days of cold maceration, fermentation begins. The winery has been designed in such a way that the whole winemaking process is gravity induced without the use of pumps. The concrete fermentation tanks where designed by Carlos Pulenta himself. Inside the tank walls there are water pipes that can circulate cold or hot water (radiant heat or cold concept). The temperature of the water is computer-cotrolled. The main adventages of this system are thermal inertia and micro oxygenation. Two french wooden abrrels are used of the best selected grapes destined to blend. Afeter being bottled, the wines rest in an underground cellar which constitutes the heart of the winery itself. Wines rest there in french oak casks in a temperature controlled room with a temperature of 58ºf and 80% relative humidity; ideal conditiones for wine.

At the heart of Vistalba, Carlos Pulenta developed his personal project of blending grapes. At the foot of the Cordon del Plata, 58 hectares of vines (57 years old) and a density of 5500 vines per hectare, are the living frame of the Winery, La Posada, The Lounge and The Bourgongne Restaurant.
