WINEGROWING

With over 300 days of sun each year...

Winemaking Is An Argentine Tradition

The Recuerdo winemaking team of Santiago Achával and Pablo Martorell passionately believes that each bottle of Recuerdo should not only represent Argentina's native terroir but also serve as a memory of each and every harvest. The growing season in Argentina usually occurs from budbreak in October to harvest beginning in February. The Malbec grapes are grown at over 3,700 feet in the heart of the Uco Valley. This prime grape-growing region enjoys over 300 days of sunshine a year, a pure irrigation source from the Andes Mountains, rocky organic soils, and a broad variance between day and nighttime temperatures. These conditions allow the winemaking team to produce incredibly concentrated and complex wines with amazing structure and balance. With Mendoza's dry, sunny and high desert climate, pesticide and herbicide use is kept to a minimum in the vineyard. The Torrontés grapes are grown in similar conditions in Famatina Valley in La Rioja, an outstanding region for Torrontés grapes.

The Uco Valley

A renowned viticultural region approximately 60 minutes south of the city of Mendoza, the Uco Valley encompasses some of the highest altitude Argentine vineyards (averaging between 900 and 1,200 meters above sea level). Known especially for Malbec and a few other popular varietals, this area draws wine enthusiasts from all over the world due to its striking natural setting at the base of the Andes Mountains.

La Rioja

The La Rioja region was one of the first areas to be planted by Spanish missionaries and has the longest continued history of wine production in Argentina. Though a relatively small and arid region, it is known for producing outstanding, aromatic Torrontés grapes.
