Philosophy



Traditionally, people have focused on regions, following names and places like Chateau Latour, Romaine Conte, Pomerol, Côte de Nuits (and it’s sub appellations) etc. Today most buyers and consumers depend on people and publications, making purchases based on a winemaker‘s following, or published scores from wine critics.


The Winemaker

When deciding on a vineyard, our primary criterion was the preservation of an old vineyard. By the mid-nineties, the planted vines in La Consulta decreased from 18,000 to 6,000. Two-thirds of the old vines had been removed for other crops or left fallow. We believe old vines in the right place have a unique character. Our 68-year-old vineyard Don Eugenio, is located in La Consulta, Mendoza, Argentina.

Adelante featured on Garagiste

"The wine is a single vineyard gem on original rootstock (65-70 year old vines) that gives very flavorful and rich results without being heavy or overtly in your face. This wine dictates a new consciousness of Argentinean Malbec for US consumers - one that is outstanding at the table or with friends alone as an accompaniment to conversation."
– Jon Rimmerman, owner of Garagiste

One of the major reasons for malbec’s ongoing popularity is the reliability of these hearty Argentine reds. The flip side of that is that they can be a bit monolithic, with few true standouts.


2017 MARKED THE 71RST VINTAGE AT OUR VINEYARD DON EUGENIO. AFTER YEARS OF IMPROVING OUR 10 ACRE VINEYARD.

CUVEE D.E. is the finest expression of our vineyard. We believe it is rare to find a small vineyard being meticulously farmed in the price range of these wines.
