Andrea Marchiori and Luis Barraud come from families with long winemaking traditions. They met while studying winemaking in Mendoza and together they pursued advanced studies at UC Davis before returning to Argentina.
After collaborating on a number of projects for other wineries, including more than a decade at Vina Cobos with Paul Hobbs, Luis and Andrea have finally accomplished their dream of making their own wine. They work with Andrea's family-owned Marchiori Vineyard, located in the Perdriel area of Lujan de Cuyo in Mendoza. Several 100 point wines have come from this vineyard. Andrea manages the vineyard with exceptional care. Together they make a small amount of wine in pursuit of expressing the best of the terroir for each varietal.
The grapes are organically grown and hand harvested. In the winery, spontaneous fermentation takes place with native yeasts and no additives are used. Finally, the wines are very lightly fined or filtered.
