Viognier 2017 is available now!

After the success we experienced with Torrontes coming from Salta (north of Argentina), we decided to double the challenge. We were looking for a white from Mendoza, made by us here at the winery. So we decided to make this beautiful Viognier  that has just been released and has had a great acceptance already. This is what Luis Mantegini said about it:

#Viognier from @carinaevinos is my recommendation of the day. This delicious varietal made with grapes coming from #Rivadavia#ZonaEste#Mendoza gives a unique tipicity of the region. Aromatic and perfumed, white tropical fruits, notes of pinneaple and banana, as well as white flowers. Good volume in the mouth, and refreshing. Excelent lenght on the finish that reminds of fruits. Good to have as an appetizer, and also with soft cheeses, fresh tapas or empanadas. A white to be enjoyed in good company. Salud!!! #CulturaSommelier – à Mendoza.

Harvest/holiday in Argentina, Le FigaroVin - Francia (April 2015)

In Argentina, harvesting is carried out from March till May, at the foot of the Aconcagua. Harvesting in this country “it’s more familial, it is a convivial pleasure” explains Daniel, 64 years old, french. At lunch, the pickers eat, under the shade of the olive trees, sitted on boxes they fill in during the day with Malbec grapes, the variety the most typical of Argentina.

Passito de los Andes Colección, and Le Petit Ami

Two limited editions join CarinaE family: Pasito Colección and Le Petit Ami.
Passito Colección spends 12 months in french oak barrels; this gives extra ageing potential and complexity. Only 438 bottles of this wine.

Le Petit Ami is a limited edition of 302 bottles, with grapes coming from Chachingo, Maipú. This Malbec 2013 is the first coming from our 3 hectares vineyard planted by us in 2008 (original root stock).

Better hurry before these shooting stars are gone! Only available at the winery, or via shipping.

When love is stronger than wine

Carinae told through the eyes of Fabricio Portelli, in a note that tells the origin of the winery, the passion of its owners, Brigitte and Philippe and their wines, Argentine, but with a French accent.
