Doña Paula was established in 1997 in Mendoza, in the western central part of Argentina. They are owned by the Chilean wine company Santa Rita Estates, and have become one of the best known and leading wineries in Argentina. Making wine in their modern winery in Mendoza, they are at the forefront of exploring and investing in new high quality regions. Doña Paula take an organic approach and the fruit for their wines all come from their own vineyards, with 703 hectares under vine in four different sites in some of the best locations in Mendoza. The 435 hectare Finca el Alto in the Ugarteche region of Luján de Cuyo at 1,050 metres above sea level is Doña Paula's main vineyard, planted on deep clay loamy soils with rocks. Some of the vines here were planted in 1969. Finca Alluvia in the Gualtallary region of Turpungato at 1,350 metres is their highest vineyard, planted on rocky and mineral caliche rich soils. Finca Los Cerezos in the Córdon del Plata region of Tupungato at 1,000 metres has deep sandy loam soils. Finca de los Indios, in the El Cepillo region of San Carlos is planted at 1,150 metres on clay loamy, very calcareous soils. Their main production is dedicated to reds, principally made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, and of course they are Malbec specialists and produce a stunning range from Argentina's signature red grape variety. But they do also produce some white wines, in particular attractive Sauvignon Blancs and Chardonnays. These are premium wines, faithful expressions of each terroir and superb value.
