Behind the Label
- The Maison
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.
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.
