We are very proud of our countrys viticultural heritage and Mendozas unique terroir, and we devote ourselves to making wines that emphasize the characteristics of the style and spirit of Bodega Argentos wines: fruit purity, freshness, intensity, elegance, balance, and the maximum expression of the vineyard –terroir– where the grapes come from.
At Bodega Argento we are passionate about bringing the maximum expression of the terroir where the grapes come from into each wine. Our wines combine the complexity of the best terroirs in Mendoza with fruit purity.
To that end, we analyze the soil from each of our estates, as well as the solar radiation, and we implement the appropriate irrigation system for each sector of the vineyard. We monitor the climate conditions every day, in each stage of the vines life cycle. We work in the land and in the vines, we taste the grapes to determine the optimum moment to harvest them according to the area and the soil of each section of the land, and we choose the appropriate harvesting method. We have the best technology as far as winemaking is concerned. We always respect the organic nature of our wines when we implement it, in order to conserve the fruits essence. We want to ensure the maximum expression of the terroir and the grapes varietal character in its full potential, in each of the styles and wine brands that we produce.
All the members in our team are winemakers, with no distinction between oenologists and agricultural engineers, who are united in a common goal: to make the best wines expressing the essence of the terroir from each of our vineyards. We have a team that is specifically devoted to research and development, with the mission of getting to know our vineyards better every day, studying the different areas, especially those growing Malbec grapes.
The winery is located at Cruz de Piedra, Maipú, in the Central Region of Mendoza. It is a building from the year 1970 which was designed by architect Chicho Pitela. The structure is of Mediterranean style with wide galleries, arcades and vitreaux which confer a really warm illumination and grant the place with an environment that reflects the one from where the vineyards are grown. The winery is surrounded byvineyards and olive trees that overlook the mountain range, from which Tupungato hill and the renowned Cordón del Plata must be highlighted.
Bodega Argento embraces a constant spirit of improvement by linking technology with passion, art, knowledge and the Argentinian oenological tradition with the clear goal of respecting both sustainability and the environment.
