Vision of the Argentinian wine industry:

Argentina is a country with a great potential in its red wines: Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah adn above all, Malbec. I firmly believe that we can still grow a lot in quality in our wines and I am convinced that the wines should be sought from the vineyard, and assist in the winemaking, to achieve higher quality. I think Mendoza (Lujan) is the perfect place where we can find the finest flavors that blend in with excellent balance.
