Santiago AchavalThe Uco Valley terroir gives wines, with its extraordinary land, its soil, and its climate, great "character." I work with Cabernet Franc in my winery and it is a wine that  is difficult as avarietal in most other countries and climates, but  varietal achieves concentration and complexity here in Argentina. It is able to be full bodied with strength  and finesse. Also I am a big fan of blends, searching for the delicate nuances that allow each varietal to express itself, creating a perfect blend. I personally planted Syrah, Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc at the Private Vineyard Estates and look forward to creating new wines and blends.

Enjoy these great selections from Argentina!
