Californian trail-blazer Paul Hobbs visited Argentina in 1989 and fell in love with its terroir and culture. Vi̱a Cobos is the result of a shared dream between Paul and his winemaking partners - Andrea Marchiori and Luis Barraud.
Founded in 1997, Vi̱a Cobos utilises old vines, careful vineyard selection, low yields and an unerring empathy for raw materials. The result is a range of expressive, balanced, world-class wines with a true sense of place.
The inaugural 1999 vintage received the highest score to date for an Argentinean wine upon release. Subsequent releases earned 98 points from Wine Advocate magazine. The wines continue to earn outstanding plaudits from the world press.
Vi̱a Cobos has an extensive team of grape growers located in different outstanding winemaking regions in Mendoza. They work closely together and are committed to quality and a respect for the terroir.
