Made with love, from Valle de Uco
MENDOZA - ARGENTINA
Dear Wine Lover


From the earth, a seed is sown. From that seed comes our vine. From our vine, wine- worthy grapes that are plump and juicy thanks to irrigation in the form of melted snow straight from the Andes and 300 sunny days a year. And we take what mother earth has given us, high up at 1,000 metres above the sea level in Valle de Uco, Mendoza, to create Finca Piedras Andinas wine.

Valle de Uco is an oasis set on the mid-western side of Mendoza province. A picturesque and fertile valley that captivates and dazzles with its natural charms such as valleys, mountains, streams, lakes, fruit orchards and vineyards, this natural landscape is framed by bright sunshine during the day and breathtaking, star-filled sky come nightfall.
The fortuitous combination of high altitude, alluvial soils, irrigation, sunny days, low rainfall and wide temperature range provide the ideal microclimate for vine cultivation. Our grapes are characterized by exquisite ripeness and concentration of fruit, and yield deep colours, intense aromas, pleasant flavours and rich textures.

Finca Piedras Andinas wines are created using rigorously selected grapes produced in our vineyard on the banks of the Tunuyan River, at the foot of the Andes. Our vines are naturally healthy thanks to the warm breezes that blow throughout spring and summer. We take pride in our small productions from start to finish, and are especially proud of our wine.

Mother Earth gave us the tools to produce excellent wine, and we truly believe we have perfected the technique.
Valle de Uco


Is a viticultural region southwest of Mendoza, in Argentina. Situated along the Tunuyán River, the Uco Valley is widely considered one of the top wine regions in Mendoza, and all of Argentina.

The average temperature is 14°C and altitudes range from 900 to 1,200 meters (2,950 to 3,930 ft) above sea level.

It is surrounded by the peaks of Cordón del Plata and escorted by the magnificent Andean mountain range, which offers an exceptional climate and provides the right wide temperature range, which helps in the growth of vines.

Argentina’s icon grape variety of Malbec shines in the Uco Valley, producing terroir-driven red wines with a distinctive floral aroma.





Vineyard

This vineyard, consisting of 80 hectares at an altitude of 1,000 to 1,020m, is planted almost entirely with Malbec, Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc grapes.

Situated in the heart of the Uco Valley, and resting on the east bank of the Tunuyan River, which performs its constant, natural symphony of a young river that flows hastily upon the stones of its riverbed throughout the year.

The western landscape is framed by the peaks of the Andes Mountains, atop which rests the evening sun.



- CLIMATE -

More than 270 days a year of intense sunlight, coupled with low night-time temperatures, benefit the grapes in achieving their full ripeness with an excellent balance between sugars and acids.
Limited annual rainfall, along with the Andean winds, facilitate producing grapes of great vigour.

- SOIL -

Alluvial soils, which are stony, permit excellent drainage during the summer and also enable a distinguished quality of grapes yielded.

- WATER -

Irrigation is in the form of melted snow straight from the Andes. Taking great care, we have established an automated drip system that ensures water reaches each vine, while limiting waste of this valuable resource.

- BIODIVERSITY -

Aside from serving as the water source for the out-drip irrigation system, the vineyard’s two-hectare artificial lake is home to more than 30,000 freshwater smelt and diverse species of birds that find it a pleasant and comfortable place to rest.


Wine from Argentina

Argentina is one of the most important wine-producing countries in the New World, and the largest producer of wine in South America. The high-altitude deserts of the eastern Andes have given rise to a high-quality wine industry and the terroir here is well suited to Argentina’s adopted grape variety, the ubiquitous Malbec. Originally from Bordeaux, this is now responsible for some of Argentina’s most famous wines, which are characteristically bright and intense, with floral notes and flavors of dark fruit.
