In 2002 a group of friends decided to invest in Argentina. Each a wine lover. Each excited about the opportunity for Argentinian wines on the world stage. They purchased the land that was to become the Ambrosia Vineyard and set out to make their collective ambition, a reality. At that time, the region Gualtallary district, Tupungato department, in the heart of the Uco Valley was beginning to capture the interest of wine producers mostly due to its soil and climate characteristics.
Today, that developing region is now considered the finest area for the production of premium wines in the Mendoza Province. Having enlisted the help of a local wine maker to process their fruit, the only way they could pay him was in bottles of the resulting wine. One such bottle came to the attention of Robert Parker who awarded 95 points – an outstanding score for a first vintage! The wines are now marketed under the Ambrosia label, and it is quality of the fruit that defines the concentration and finish on these wines.
