The Uco Valley is located at the foot of the Andes, running north to south on the western edge of Argentina’s Mendoza region. At 70km long and 40km wide, its rich alluvial soils form a cultivated oasis with altitudes in excess of 900 metres above sea level. The vineyards benefit from a cold dry climate and a wide temperature range of almost 20ºc between day and night.
The combination of multiple microclimates, altitudes and soil types has resulted in many unique terroirs across the individual vineyards. The challenge which Sebastián Zuccardi and the winemaking team are embracing is to identify the individual characteristics of each vineyard and allow them to express their identity in the wines they produce.
