The Vines of Mendoza

Las Perdices at The Vines


Las Perdices

Last night Las Perdices visited The Vines of Mendoza for our weekly noche de enologo.

The story goes that vineyard founder Don Juan’s constant companions were three partridges during his long workdays in the vineyards, thus he named his winery Partridge Vineyard: “Viña las Perdices”.

Today the winery is a family operation created by Juan Muñoz López originally from Andalucia, in southern Spain , his wife Rosario, his sons Nicolas and Carlos, and his daughter Estela.

They served three delicious wines:

  1. 2008 Las Perdices Sauvignon Blanc

  2. 2006 Las Peridices Cabernet Sauvignon

  3. 2006 Las Perdices Reserva- 70% Malbec, 10% Bonarda, 10% Merlot, 10% Syrah

The winery is located in Viña las Perdices is located in the foothills of the Andes Range at 1.030 m. (3.380 ft.) above sea level, in Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo.
