History & Geography
The election of the ideal terroir was one of the biggest challenges for the Agostino brothers. They chose the area of Barrancas in Maipú, Mendoza, due to its great potential and unique soil, Mendoza River's bed. They also acquired another estate in the heart of the Uco Valley, one of the most prestigious wine regions in Mendoza, which they called “Serafina” in loving honor to their mother. Today, the same care that the Agostino brothers learned from their grandfather is taken with each plant all year long. More than 18 vine grower contractors work the land directed by our agricultural engineer. The contract system is still used to work the land in Mendoza, and in very few other places in the world. The vine grower is contracted to take responsibility for a parcel of the vineyard for the entire season. The quality of the grape harvest depends on the vine grower’s work throughout the year and thus he dedicates his life, hard work and passion to the vines.
