Seventy kilometers from the city of Mendoza, in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, lays one of the best kept secrets in the Uco Valley, the Gouguenheim Winery. Several geographical and climate elements define this unique terroir. These vineyards are cultivated at an altitude of more than 3.600 feet (one of the highest estates in Mendoza). In a region that has a desert climate; water from the snow of the Andes Mountains is carried by irrigation channels, through the alluvial soils. There is also a vast temperature difference between day and night (16 º C). As a result, Gouguenheim wines are excellent with great colors, aromas and flavours, with round tannins. These elements of the terroir, combined with the winemaking expertise and knowledge of owner Patricio Gouguenheim result in a consistent production of top quality wines year after year.
