    The vineyards of Algodon Wine Estates are located in the foothills of the Sierra Pintada Mountains in San Rafael, Mendoza. With vines dating back to the 1940’s, this two thousand acre estate was developed by Scott Mathis and his partners and is nestled in the heart of Argentina’s wine country.

    Our vineyards are located between two nourishing rivers sustained by the purest glacial runoff from the snowcapped Andes Mountains. As a result, our mineral rich soil has distinctive properties and considerable benefits that contribute to our ability to produce top wines. In addition to Algodon’s superior vineyards, our antique olive groves and an abundant variety of fruit and nut orchards further enrich our bountiful estate, which embraces eco-friendly concepts and ecologically responsible science for the production of our fine products.

    Guests enjoy internationally award-winning accommodation, guided vineyard tours, a world-class winery, the finest traditional Argentine cuisine from our prize-winning restaurant, tennis, and 18-holes of championship golf that literally play through vineyards


    At the heart of Algodon Wine Estates we finf the Winery, surrounded by vineyards and the golf course and the Sierra Pintada and Andes on the horizon. The wine portfolio includes: Malbec, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Bonarda, Chardonnay, Malbec Rosé and Gran Reserva.

    We designed the winery with the sole purpose of producing top quality wines, which are made from the highest standards. Our facilities include modern stainless steel tanks and concrete, an underground cellar which provides ideal temperature and humidity, and the finest French oak barrels for wine aging. These factors combine to ensure our ability to produce year after year the best wines.

    The winery is located at 800 meters above sea level, in a structure that contains three main sections: the area of Development and Conservation, La Cava, and the Laboratory and tasting room, featuring a large view of our vineyards and the golf course, with the Sierra Pintada in the background.

    New Vines
    The planting of new vineyards began in 1997. With a total of 51 hectares, trellises is 2 meters tall, with three wires and a planting distance of 3 meters between rows and 1.5 m between plants. The conduction system is "pythons bilateral cordon", where pruning is different from old vines, as all the grapes are available on wire load at the same level, through which flow both strands of the plant.

    Thus the sun exposure of clusters is much more open, work will also facilitate quality improvement as thinning, deshooting, leaf and speeds up the harvest. The yields range between 8,000 and 12,000 kg / hectare in accordance with the types of wine grapes that will be used. The mechanical and manual work culture are similar to low vineyards.

    Irrigation was performed by traditional or drip system. The latter allows to regulate the water needed by the strain in a timely manner but with the difference that the humidity is maintained steadily, achieving a unique balance. The results in terms of quality of grapes obtained are optimal. Through this system are also performed fertilization operations. These vineyards are protected with anti-hail net, Granbuille system.
