About us

Estrella de los Andes is located in Perdriel (Luján de Cuyo) at 945 meters asl, 32º56’ south latitude and 68º 49’ west longitude. Perdriel is known as the ‘land of Malbec’, it has a semi-desert climate and an average annual temperature of 61º F. In the summer there is a wide fluctuation between day-and-night-time temperatures, which is necessary for the vines to rest from the hot sun. This way we obtain full-bodied wines with marked alcohol levels and fruit flavors that catch and seduce with their soft and silky personality.

The proximity to the mountains allows us to use water from the Andes, which is clear, pure and rich in minerals, for irrigation.

In the winery’s surroundings, there are olive trees -two of the most representative varieties of the area, Frantoio and Arauco- that create a unique landscape.

The structure of Estrella de los Andes winery fits perfectly into the traditional landscape of Luján de Cuyo. It is characterized by the contrast between its old structure and the modern machinery (imported from Italy) for processing and bottling wine.
