Cultivating with patience
Thanks to soil and temperature characteristics, Vista Flores has been established as the new best area to produce fine grapes. Located at 3.445 feet above sea level, Antucura is a 247 acres vineyard – 2.227 plants per acre, high density for Argentina – where the wine cellar rests on a bed of stones from glacial origin, with optimum conditions for its vines. Soil is limestone from alluvial origin with gravel in the subsoil, originating from a very rocky soil.
Climate is continental, with rare precipitations – 200 mm per year- Irrigation is by drip automated system. We imported the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines directly from Pomerol, France. Later on were added Malbec, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Infinitely starry cool nights, and days filled with sunshine, support the maturity of the grapes, which are then manually harvested.
