History and philosophy
In 1990, the Bousquet family arrived in Mendoza aiming to keep up with the vineyards and wineries of the area. They discovered that the region had unique characteristics including the soil, altitude and terroir. Because of these characteristics and qualities, they knew they had found the ideal location for their winery.
In 1997, a parcel of land was purchased and they relocated from France to the foothills of the Andes. With cold nights and a near constant breeze, the vineyard is located in a region with idyllic conditions to produce ripe grapes and extraordinary organic wines.
"We are committed to organic agriculture while improving our land’s biodiversity", says Anne Bousquet. "We believe that the healthier the vineyard, the better the fruit and, of course, the wine. In other words, by nourishing the land and treating it with respect, we know that the land will give us back its finest fruits", comments Anne Bousquet, CEO, co-founder, and partner.
The organic philosophy together with our extensive sustainable practices are the key values that the entire staff shares with the company and is eager to transmit to our visitors.
