The Giol Family is the oldest grape growing family in Mendoza.  María de los Angeles Morchio Giol is one of the great grandsons who was involved in a larger project (San Polo) for several years, then decided to get out and get back to his roots doing small production wine and focusing on 100% Malbec from some of the family's original vineyards, at very high altitude in the Uco Valley.  Las Nencias winery is located 3,000 m above sea level, with the backdrop view of the Marmolejo glacier amid the Andes Mountains.  The most distinctive feature of this place is the wild growth of “nencias” a variety of stunning blue-purple flower.  Héctor Durigutti is making the wines, using all natural yeasts.
