The Story

Old vine fruit from Lujan de Cuyo (vineyard planted in 1928) and La Consulta (vineyard planted in 1940) give this release substantial color, attack, and body. Many Argentine “Reserva” Malbecs are sadly dominated by excessive oak – This is not one of those wines – The use of well-seasoned barrels allows the heirloom vineyard fruit to shine bright.

About Durigutti

Brand Story

At their winery in rural Luján, Héctor & Pablo Durigutti craft artisan wines including top Malbecs & two of the country's best examples of Bonarda. Héctor first became known for his work as one of the co-founders of Altos Las Hormigas - project that placed Argentine Malbec on the international map. With extensive experience in Europe (including a stint at Antinori), Héctor has developed a unique winemaking style blending old world tradition with modern innovation. Héctor's younger brother Pablo has quickly built a reputation for himself as well, with a resume including work with Catena. Today, both brothers are some of the country's most sought-after consulting enologists. This boutique project that bears their name is their pride & joy.
