It is a blend of two parcels of Malbec. One richer in deeper clay soils and the other with some clay but a high percentage of gravels. idea is not to do an over-extracted Malbec to highlight the grape’s ability to be elegant and fresh.

Lucas studied agriculture in Buenos Aires. Worked in this field until he did his first vintage in Mendoza for Finca La Celia. He then went to study a Masters in oenology in Montpellier before working harvests in St. Emilion, Portugal, Germany and Australia. He was then tempted back to Argentina when a family friend offered him some vineyard land, eventually taking over his family’s vineyards in Ugarteche, where they had grown grapes to sell to other wineries.The idea is to express as much as possible the terroir in the wines by avoiding over manipulation and winemaking tricks in the winery.
