About us

Astonished by the terroir, in 1895, Edmund James Palmer Norton planted in Mendoza vines imported from France, giving birth to Norton winery in the south of the Mendoza River. In 1989, Austrian businessman Gernot Langes-Swarovski bought Norton after sensing the great potential of Argentina to influence the world scene. Impressed by the beauty of the area and the optimal conditions for growing grapes, he chose Norton because it was the only traditional winery surrounded by its own vineyards. In 1991, Gernot Langes-Swarovski's son, Michael Halstrick, began a new phase, aided by significant investments, modernization and growth, that would prepare the company for its great worldwide expansion.

During the 90's, Norton winery started exporting high-end wines, becoming one of the first wineries to develop export markets. Led by Michael Halstrick and his team, the winery experienced a strong international growth and positioned itself as one of the leading wine exporters in the country, reaching currently over 60 destinations.

Wine Enthusiast nominated Norton as the "Best New World Winery of the Year" in the 2011 edition of its competition "Wine Star Awards".
