“Based in my 16 years of experience in Uco Valley, I can say this is the area where most of the best wines of Mendoza are produced. The proximity to the Andes Mountain Range along with broad thermal differentials and lightweight alluvial soils with excellent drainage make this terroir an exceptional place to achieve premium wines and develop a viticulture and enology in the most natural way possible, in order to reach the maximum expression of a unique and fantastic terroir like Uco Valley, and most of all the area in which the Casa de Uco is located”.
Made with Malbec grapes from our vineyards, graced by privileged growing conditions, reaching international standards, due to an average altitude of 1200 meters (4,100 feet) above sea level, a semi-arid climate that provides 330 days of sunshine, great thermal amplitude along with alluvial soils with excellent drainage; our vineyards are irrigated by water from the region’s largest, most pristine and inexhaustible aquifer.
GRAVITY FLOW WINE PRODUCTION PROCESS
The winery will make its products by means of an innovative gravity flow system. The sorting table and the truck loading/unloading area will be elevated above the winery. This elevation will allow the grapes to be transported without being damaged avoiding the use of pumps from the sorting table to the wine vessels.
The grapes enter the winery in trays that are transported into a sorting belt where clusters are hand sorted and grapes destemmed.
Afterwards, the clusters are transported into the destemmer where the grapes are extracted from the stem. The individual grapes fall inside a mobile grape press that is located in the upper level of the winery and move by gravity to the fermentation vats that are located in the lower level.
This process is important to ensure not only that grapes arrive as natural as possible, but also the production of high-quality wines.
