Vina Cobos

Since the release of the inaugural 1999 vintage of Cobos Malbec, which is recognized for receiving the highest score to date for any Argentine wine, Viña Cobos has developed an expansive portfolio of ultra-premium wines that continues to grow today. Founders Andrea Marchiori, Luis Barraud and Paul Hobbs established this winery with the shared vision of producing an exquisite selection of Argentine wine that would receive international recognition and appreciation. Paul's first exposure to Argentina sparked an immediate interest and intrigue – one that fueled his desire to delve further into its rich culture and explore the varietal growing potential of its terroir. This, combined with Andrea and Luis' Mendozan roots and viticulture heritage, allowed for all three of them to not only achieve their dreams, but exceed them. With the four vineyards of Zingaretti, Rebon, Touza and Marchiori scattered throughout Mendoza's Luján de Cuyo and Uco Valley, Viña Cobos boasts decades of prosperity and hints at a similar future – a direct product of the founders' ceaseless and careful commitment to the winery and consumer's experience.
