About Gauchezco Vineyard and Winery
Now owned by the Anesi Family, the vines on the historic Gauchezco property in Barrancas-Maipu date back to 1881. Malbec grown in this venerable region produces deep colored wines with rich and complex fruit flavors. Fruit is also sourced from the new “it” region for Argentinian Malbec—Altamira-La Consulta and Tupungato. The higher elevation here adds great structure, aromatics and acidity to Maipu’s fruity richness. The Torrontés is grown in the Cafayate Salta region of Argentina which has the highest elevation for winegrowing in the country. Sourced from vineyards over 6,500’ elevation.
