Vientos del Sur

The most important characteristic of Vientos del Sur is that the vineyards are 20 years old and they are conducted with a "pergola" system. This is the traditional way of farming grapes in Mendoza. Old vine Malbec is very well adapted to this system, and reaches optimal ripeness when trained this way.

Introducing Vientos del Sur

Owned and operated by Eduardo Lapania, who works with winemaker Juan Bruzzone, Pie de Palo hand-harvests its grapes in baskets of 15 kg (33 lb), which are later carefully transported to the winery. Once in the winery, they carry out a strict selection of the best grapes.

Pie de Palo is made up of a talented team of 33 professionals.  The winery is under the banner of Don Cristóbal 1492 that was established in 1998.  Don Cristóbal 1492 has a total of 200 hectares of vineyards, which are exclusively dedicated to the elaboration of international top quality wines. At the moment, they have 125 hectares of planted vineyards, divided in four estates: Finca La Niña, Finca La Pinta, Finca El Remanso, Finca La Santa María. All located close to Mendoza City.
