    Achaval Ferrer is a boutique winery, located in the province of Mendoza, Argentina. The winery makes limited amounts of red wines, aiming for the highest quality possible. More than a business, it is a dream, with the idea of joining friends from Argentina and Italy in the task of finding the expression in wine of a great and beautiful place. Winemaker: Roberto Cipresso, partner and winemaker of Achaval-Ferrer. Roberto is considered one of the most talented young Italian enologists by the specialized magazines and press.

Gibson: Lujan, 65 years, 3140 ft above sea level, 7.5 acres, 2200 per acre, gravel, well-drained Vega: La Consulta, 12 years, 3460 ft above sea level, 15 acres, 1600 per acre, sandy, some volcanic ash, very well drained.
