Terrazas de los Andes
Terrazas de los Andes crafts wines with aromatic complexity and flavor. Four classic varietals – malbec, cabernet sauvignon, torrontés and chardonnay – make up the estate’s blends, all grapes that thrive in the winery’s high-altitude terroir.
Steeped in history
Named after the terraced plateaus at the foot of the Andes, Terrazas de los Andes was founded in 1996 but has a rich heritage. A Spanish-style winery was built there in 1898 by Sotero Arizu, one of the forefathers of Argentine winemaking, and some estate vines date from 1929.
A rigorous method
At Terrazas de los Andes, the focus is on the vineyards and the grapes. Harnessing the diversity of climates and soils in the region, there is minimum intervention by winemakers. This allows the grapes to reach their full expression, resulting in refined wines.
Unique landscapes at high altitude
The estate’s eight vineyards in the Uco Valley and Lujan de Cajon range in altitude from 3,200-3,900 feet, with conditions ideal for malbec, cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay. Further north, in Cafayate, Salta, which is 5,900 feet above sea level, torrontés thrives.
