Description

A land of extremes

From a country with lakes and forests reminiscent of Switzerland, this wine comes from land with great natural wealth.

It isn't unusual to go days without meeting another person in the hills of Patagonia, but you will come across an array of wildlife and stunning wildflowers.

In the late 19th century, Welsh settlers came to Patagonia to raise sheep, turning Argentine Patagonia into the wool-making capital of South America.

Within a generation, the Europeans embraced the Argentian culture and became famously known as gauchos - Argentine cowboys, farming the land.

The refreshing cool and often windy weather presents the perfect environment for Pinot Noir and Merlot, giving these wines great freshness and longevity.
