Winery Info/ Brand
Huarpe honours the peaceful and hardworking natives that inhabited Mendoza’s vast lands around the 5th century, before the Spanish conquest. Their civilisation was diligent, methodical and mindful of the environment. They build the water system that turned Mendoza into an oasis. They designed a system of canals and ditches prepared to irrigate our land with the pure mountain water that melts from The Andes. They fostered the irrigation methods that gave life to our tree-lined streets and made the growing of fruits and vegetables possible.
Their long-term vision lay the foundations of our agriculture and wine industry. The purpose of Huarpe Wines is to continue the work of previous generations in one of the most extraordinary wine regions of the world.
Region Info/ Origin
Mendoza, in Argentina's Cuyo region, is the capital of Mendoza Province and the heart of Argentina's wine country. Its many bodegas (wineries) are famous for tastings and tours. Mendoza Climate, in general, is moderately cold during winters, with sunny days and lows regularly below freezing temperature. Rainfall is scarce and not enough to support vines, but heavy winter snowfall on the Andes mountains provides snowmelt water for irrigation. The soils of the different winemaking regions originated from the erosion and decomposition of the Andean rocks and minerals in the Quaternary period. Mendoza's vines are famed for Malbecs and other bold reds.
