The need for additional land, tanks and updated bottling lines are a direct result of the rapid growth of our brands - Dan Haugen, Executive Vice President, PIATTELLI

PIATTELLI, a leading Argentina winery, announced it has increased production capacity in Cafayate to meet the rapid growth of the PIATTELLI brands. These investments are attributable to several factors, most notably the increased demand for the company's brands. PIATTELLI continues to ensure the high quality and consistency customers have grown to expect.

"The need for additional vineyards, tanks and bottling lines are a direct result of the rapid growth of our brands," said Dan Haugen, Executive Vice President, PIATTELLI. "We are very excited about the bright future for our new Cafayate, Salta wines and are committed to ensuring we meet consumer demand as we fulfill our mission to craft wines with Wisdom and Precision that people are Passionate about."

Since 2011, PIATTELLI has experienced a steep growth trajectory; expanding on its original Mendoza winery with a second, multimillion-dollar state-of-the-art winery in Cafayate, Salta in 2012—arguably the most significant investment in Argentina’s wine industry in recent years. Wine production is on target to grow from about 21,000 in 2011 to over 165,000 cases in 2016.

The new vineyards in Cafayate will provide additional Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and the much-celebrated Tannat.
