When in the mid-1990s Concha y Toro, Chileâs leading wine producer, announced its successful purchase a collection of vineyards (now accounting for 3,185 acres) in the Mendoza region of neighboring Argentina, there was little doubt on either side of the Andes that change was in the air. Wind is the agent of change, so it was only fitting that the new venture was named â Triventoâ (Three Winds), a whimsical reference to three winds that sweep through Mendoza and are such a distinguishing feature of the regionâs climate and environment.Purchase of vineyards was quickly followed by construction of a state-of-the-art winery equipped with the latest and most advanced winemaking technology. Oversight of the new property was assigned to General Manager TomÃ¡s Larrain, with winemaking responsibilities entrusted to the talented Argentinean winemaker Federico Galdeano. To further underscore its commitment to its Argentinean property, Concha y Toro enticed the internationally famed Italian consulting enologist Alberto Antonini to lend his expertise to Trivento. Triventoâs principal vineyards are located in the Uco Valley, Maipu, Lujan de Cuyo, San Martin and Rivadavia districts of Mendoza â a wine region that exemplifies the advantages of high-altitude viticulture. Fast-forward to the present day and Trivento can point to a flourishing international reputation as a leading name in fine quality wines from Argentina's premier wine region. Today Trivento embraces a comprehensive range of wines, starting with Trivento Reserve, a line of five varietals that expertly illustrate the quality and competitive value that Argentinean wines can offer. Trivento subsequently released its much admired limited edition Trivento Golden Reserve wines. At the pinnacle of offerings is Trivento Eolo, a super-premium reserve Malbec that debuted with a 93 rating in the June 2008, issue of Wine Spectator magazine. The winery's latest release, Amado Sur, honors the marriage between the vines and the foothills of the Andes Mountains, where grapes develop complexity and unique expressions that could only be described as - a love of the south - or Amado Sur.
