Established in 1883, Trapiche is the most widely recognized Argentinean wine producer in the world. Located in Mendoza at the foothills of the Andes mountains, Trapiche has some of the most extensive landholdings in the area, with over 2,500 acres of its own vineyards. Under the guidance of Chief Winemaker, Daniel Pi, Trapiche has consolidated all of its winemaking and viticulture, creating a synergy between winemaking and agriculture. Along with his team of winemakers and Marcelo Belmonte, Director of Viticulture, Daniel Pi’s vision for Trapiche is to express the richness of diversity of the terroir in Argentina.
All Trapiche wines are hand-harvested, hand-sorted and vinified at their winery. The wines have a new international style, fruit-driven and consumer friendly, which represent the best of Argentina.
The grapes making this wine come from Trapiche vineyards in Cruz de Piedra, Maipú and Alto Verde, San Martín in Mendoza province. The vineyards are located between 650 and 850 meters elevation and have clay and sandy soils settled on boulders. The fruit is hand harvested and there is bunch selection. The grapes are destemmed before fermentation and maceration in small concrete vats which lasts 25 days. There is a gentle pneumatic pressing and a natural malolactic fermentation before the wine is aged for 12 months in American oak barrels. The wine goes through final blending and a gentle filtering before bottling.
