The sun’s strong influence, the soft winds that constantly blow from North to South and its sandy loam soils, permeable and deep, along with its thermal amplitude, make up for the wines in Tucumán: bright colors, simple and spicy aromas along with sweet, fruity flavors with balanced alcohol.

They are strong, structured wines. The sum of its climatic conditions merged with the soil, altitude and the purity of the melting water, create wines of first-class quality. In addition, an organic working method is practiced.
