In 1902, Nicol‡s Catena arrived in Argentina from Italy. In Finca La Libertad in Mendoza, he established an ancient tradition in new lands. Jorge, his grandson, receives this legacy transmitting to his family the passion for winemaking. Today Jorge and his family continue the tradition. They use only grapes from the Finca San Vicente Estate, in La Consulta, Uco Valley. This vineyard has been in the family for more than 50 years. Deep sandy soils, the high altitude of the vineyards, and the water coming from the thaw of the Andes Mountains combine to create wines of unique personality. The harvest is done 100% by hand. Only native yeasts are used and fermentation is done in small tanks plot by plot. The wines are bottled with no fining and only a very light filtration. They aim for elegance.
