Our Wines

El Porvenir

El Porvenir means the future, what is still to come.

El Porvenir is the luxury of being able to think long term. Inspired by future generations, we conceived of this wine.

Because when we think of what is to come, we think about how legacies are passed down, about how the future will be, and about how this wine, which is our family icon and which expresses our ideas in their purest and most noble form, is helping Cafayate be the best it can be.

El Porvenir, our great promise.

It is a blend of at least four red varietals that vary each year as we seek to choose the best wines from each vintage to make up this iconic blend. The parcels from which they come are specially selected and specially farmed during the year to obtain a yield of less than 4 tons per hectare.

It spends a minimum of 18 months in new French and American oak barrels and almost 2 years in bottle before being released.
