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.
