Last night Las Perdices visited The Vines of Mendoza for our weekly noche de enologo.
The story goes that vineyard founder Don Juanâ€™s constant companions were three partridges during his long workdays in the vineyards, thus he named his winery Partridge Vineyard: â€œViÃ±a las Perdicesâ€.
Today the winery is a family operation created by Juan MuÃ±oz LÃ³pez originally from Andalucia, in southern Spain , his wife Rosario, his sons Nicolas and Carlos, and his daughter Estela.
They served three delicious wines:
- 2008 Las Perdices Sauvignon Blanc
- 2006 Las Peridices Cabernet Sauvignon
- 2006 Las Perdices Reserva- 70% Malbec, 10% Bonarda, 10% Merlot, 10% Syrah
The winery is located in ViÃ±a las Perdices is located in the foothills of the Andes Range at 1.030 m. (3.380 ft.) above sea level, in Agrelo, LujÃ¡n de Cuyo.
