The estate is located at the foot of the Andes in the heart of the Uco Valley, and is owned by the Péré Vergé family. Having been winemakers in France for generations, they set up their Argentine estate in the 1990s, having fallen in love with the potential of the Mendoza region. Situated in the village of Vista Flores, the vines range in altitude from 1000m to 1200m above sea level, the overwhelming majority of which are located on northern or eastern facing slopes. This gives the grapes better exposure to the Southern Hemisphere sun, aiding the ripening process.
