The Province of Mendoza is in the center-west of Argentina, on the border with Chile, at the foot of the Andes Mountain Range and produces about 70% of Argentine wines. In the last three decades, thanks to investments in plantations and technology, this region has developed greatly.
The desert climate, with an average annual rainfall of 250 mm, makes irrigation a key factor. The departments of Maipú and Luján de Cuyo - where the winery and Finca Libertad are located - are within the so-called "First Zone", a region traditionally known for producing the best quality Argentine wines.
Finca La Encerrada, at 1,500 meters above sea level (m.a.s.l.), and acquired some years ago is in the renowned Uco Valley. This is an area of great development with vineyards located at between 1,000 and 1,600 m.a.s.l. (3,300 to 5,250 ft), located in the District of Gualtallary, Department of Tupungato, one of Mendoza’s top two Malbec micro-regions. Thanks to its exceptional climate and soil conditions, very fresh wines of intense colors are produced, with abundant flowery and fruity tones, great body and elegance.
