Don Cristóbal owns a total of 200 hectares of land with 143 hectares of planted vineyards, a very good production base, great diversity of areas and grapes and is constantly evolving. The company improves day by day in the winemaking process and is adopting sustainable practices in the vineyards and in the winery.

The estate of Don Cristobal consists of 200 hectares of land, located in the surroundings of Mendoza city, with 143 hectares of planted vineyards.

The production methods, either the work in the vineyards or in the winery, rely on the successfully proven combination of tradition and technological innovations.

The variety of soils and altitude, specific of each of our vineyards, jointly with an adequate balance between its production and its vegetative part (to pursue this we work with innovative techniques of watering and fertilization) allow us to get top quality grapes.
