A Passion for extreme quality.

Expressing the unique characteristics of each vineyard. Wines of high intensity and structure, with excellent body, ripe and sweet tannins and lingering taste. We have six different wines: Malbec is from the best terroir in Finca La Encerrada, as well as the Pinot Noir that is made on one hectare of that estate. The 3.5-hectare Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as Sangiovese’s 2.2 hectares, come from vineyards planted in 1935; the Syrah was planted in 1956 on 2.5 hectares and the blend composed of Cabernet Sauvignon (1935), Cabernet Franc (1899) and Merlot (1956) are all from Finca Libertad.
