About us

Cheval des Andes has the privilege of being created in 1999, from the union between the great Chateau Cheval Blanc and an Argentine winery at the forefront of high-altitude wines, Terrazas de los Andes, to which the Chateau gave part of its name. Cheval des Andes honors the privilege and is proof of the trust in its terroirs and in the winery.

The story begins when Pierre Lurton, President of Chateau Cheval Blanc, was captivated by the idea of digging up a connection with the Saint Emilion past, when he found out 80-year-old pre-phylloxera Malbec vines in Argentina that produce some of the best wines in the world.

Cheval des Andes is the evolution of a unique combination between the quality of Bordeaux´s "Premier Grand Cru" Cheval Blanc and the best Argentine terroir which includes its Malbec from 1929. The result of such magical encounter is a refined, subtle and complex Grand Cru of the Andes, destined to become a New World's icon wine.
