About us

For over three generations, Pulenta family has been involved in Argentine viticulture. After Antonio Pulenta sold Trapiche´s majority shareholding in 1997, his sons Eduardo (the only winemaker of the third generation) and Hugo decided to continue the family tradition and build their own winery: Pulenta Estate.

The winery is located in Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza. There, 135 hectares of 20 year-old high quality vineyards enjoy an extraordinary climate with wide temperature ranges. Melt water flowing from the Andes irrigates this privileged region, where altitude reaches 980 meters above sea level. Each varietal has been achieved by combining handwork and advanced technology, generating a delicate balance in the final product. The spirit of this winery is summarized in its motto: "Making a great wine is an act of generosity, of considering always the one who will taste it. Pulenta Estate's mission is to produce limited series of great wines, proudly made in Argentina".
