don_cristobal_wineryDon Cristobal produce a multi award winning range of premium quality varietal wines from their own vineyards. Four quality levels and styles of wines, from Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Chardonnay, Torrontes and the stunning, unique Verdelho for Argentina.

The Lapania family had very clear objectives when establishing their modern winery in the 1990’s, first and foremost it was the development of first class Vineyards, spread through four estates:

Finca la Santa Maria 58 hectares 1000 metres Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza
Finca el Remanso 21 hectares 950 metres Lujan de Cuyo. Mendoza
Finca la Nina 17 hectares 650 metres Junin, Mendoza
Finca la Pinta 39 hectares 650 metres Rivadavia, Mendoza

There is a permanent re-planting of vines, an ongoing process, throughout all the estates creating the ideal average age of the vines, which is 25 years. As with all our Agencies, the common thread has been this focus on the vineyards, health of vines and quality of fruit

In the last 5 years Eduardo, his family and the Cristobal team have overseen the completion of the new, State of the Art Winemaking facility at Ugarteche. Including two bottling lines and able to produce high quality, Estate Grown and Bottled, 18.75cl, single serve bottles.

This is a super-professional operation, but never losing sight of the uniqueness of the property.
