Description

Viña Las Perdices

Argentine viticulture is marked by the stories of European immigrants that arrived to these latitudes and left their marks in the culture of this part of South America. This story has that same origin and an ending written every time someone drinks one of Las Perdices wines. In the early 50s Juan Muñoz , arrived from Andalucía to farm grapevines in Mendoza. The culture says that work is always more important than recognition, that soil marks the rhythm of farm work and frugality is the maximum virtue. In 2004, Nicolas and Juan Carlos (sons of Juan) decided to build a winery where they could produce high quality wines, with great fascination for innovation. In April that same year, founded Las Perdices in the heart of the old family vineyard in Agrelo, where they grew up and learned how to make wine. A beloved territory inhabited by the partridges that inspired the name of the winery. They settle in dry, rocky climates, they do not migrate, but rather choose a house and with a lot of effort, make it their home.
