Wine story

The name “Finca El Origen” is due to the history of the region: After the formation of continents, 120 million years ago, part of the current Andes was under the sea. Today, there are still vestiges of that era, fossilized sediments in some vineyards in Mendoza over 1000 meters high that perpetuate the origin of life. Fossil like ammonites are the silent witnesses of a fascinating past. Finca el Origen is symbolized by these fossils called ammonites to pay homage to this past that represents the source of our mountains, through its wines and its brand.
