Bodega Don Cristobal

Don Cristobal is a family owned winery that started its activities in 1998 with the solid commitment to produce quality wines with personality. The shareholders of the company are the Belgian-Argentinean family Lapania-Vandenbalck.

Don Cristobal began the production of wines with the 2001 harvest and entered that same year in the world wine market with its brand Cristóbal 1492 “wines of the new world for the entire world”. 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.
