Bodega Argento began in 1998 in the Uco Valley in the spectacular Mendoza region of Argentina.
It is a winemaker's paradise here at the foot of the Andes, with a dry climate, bright sun, natural irrigation and high altitude all combining to create the perfect conditions to grow world-class grapes. Argento means silver in Latin, and Argentina's very name derives from this precious metal. By choosing this name for their brand, Argento recognise that it is intrinsically part of the country's identity and pay homage to the traditions of the past whilst leading them into the future. Argento hold the title of Mendoza's largest organic producer. Their fruit comes from five vineyards which together cover over 380 hectares ranging from between 769 and 1100 metres above sea level. Every vineyard has a different identity: Alto Agrelo, in the highest part of the Agrelo region is planted with Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Semillon, Chardonnay, Petit Verdot and Syrah on diverse soils which are silty, clayey and sandy with rocks of varying sizes: Ugarteche is entirely planted with Cabernet Franc on soils that consist of clay, silts and small rocks; Altamira in the heart of the Uco Valley is entirely planted with Malbec on soils that have sand, silt and big rocks covered with a layer of calcium carbonate; Cruz de Piedra, located near to Argento's Mediterranean-style winery, is entirely planted with Malbec on silt and clays, and Carrizal, planted with Bonarda, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Pinot Grigio on clay, sand and silt soils. This tremendous diversity allows Argento to create an extensive portfolio of wines, the essence of which are pure, fresh and elegant, and embody the spirit of modern Argentina.
