GROWING & HARVEST CONDITIONS: Our Agrelo vineyard sits in a low area of Luján de Cuyo.
The winds that descend from the Andes Mountains favor a cool climate and great thermal amplitude due
to a hill located in the eastern region that cages such winds. This vineyard has homogeneous sandy-loam
soils facilitating water drainage, optimal root development, and ensuring a natural vigor control of strains
with a good fruit balance. The grapes sourced from this vineyard deliver wines with good volume, desired
alcohol level, intensity, aging potential, and typicity.
