History:The Ugarteche region, located south of Luján de Cuyo, was favored by the scarcity of precipitation and the high temperatures recorded during the summer of 1999. In a small vineyard of eight hectares, grapes were conceived that gave rise to a wine that during its aging in the casks of the cellar, was developing unprecedented. After repeated tastings over three years in which Hubert Weber observed the complexity and evolution of wine, he became the most recent exponent of the Weinert Estrella Collection
Tasting Notes:Bright and clear wine, pink with blue highlights. With intense and complex aroma, presence of very fresh red fruits and toasted touches of nuts. On the palate, its flavor is intense, sweet and tender, slowly evolving in a soft warmth with elegant and firm finish
Bodega & Cavas de Weinert was founded by Don Bernardo Weinert, a Brasilian of German origins, in Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza. Fascinated with the wine world, Don Bernardo Weinert decided to buid his own winery in Argentina with an unconditional approach: to produce high quality wines.
Before getting involved in such task, he carried out an extensive study of Mendoza´s weather, soil and vines; and he found in Luján de Cuyo the perfect place for his business. After a difficult process of restoration of the building acquired in 1974, he brought the latest technology for the wine production and he joined with Rául de la Mota, who was known worldwide for being the father of modern winemaking in Argentina, and who was also named the best oenologist of the 20th century in Argentina.
In 1996, Hubert Weber, a Swiss oenologist became part of the winery. With only 27 years old he became Bodega & Cavas de Weinert main oenologist till the present.
Don Bernardo Weinert is a man whose business philosophy is very simple: "As long as you have your own philosophy and keep it over the years, you will be well on the way."
