NOBILITY OF ORIGIN
“We don’t inherit our ancestors’ Land
we leave it to our children.”
Antoine de Saint Exupéry
We practice respectful agriculture of our land.
“We choose the Uco Valley to grow our vineyards. Its recognised altitude virtude, thermal amplitude, soil composition and the purity of the waters conclude in the wine personality: the nobility of origin.”
San Vicente Estate is located in La Consulta, San Carlos, Mendoza, Uco Valley, Argentina.
It is a 33 ha/ 81 acres vineyard seated at 930 mt / 3050 feet above sea level.
The irrigation is made by flooding.
Our grapevines are an average of 25 years old.
The soils are poor, there’s mainly sand (70%), limestone (25%) and clay (5%) with a depth of 2 mt /6,5 feet.
We have a great thermal amplitude which brings a natural acidity to our wines.
Our varieties: Merlot, Malbec, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat and Cabernet Franc.
