Guardians of a legacy
In days when the old was quickly replaced by the new, Achaval Ferrer decided to preserve the legacy of time. Today, the legacy is still treasured. Keeping the DNA of centennial vines intact and combining wisdom with passion, we create wines that express the magic of the exceptional terroir they come from. That’s what we do because no one is more experienced than time or wiser than nature.
Respect for the terroir and minimum intervention Since its origins, the winery has followed a clear pathway traced by a commitment to and respect for nature. Achaval Ferrer bases its winemaking on fundamental pillars and a minimal intervention principle from the vine to the wine.
The pillars are centennial, own-rooted vines, extremely low in yield; they’re historical monuments to viticulture located on sun-drenched mountainsides irrigated by rivers Tunuyán and Mendoza. These are natural, privileged sites carefully treated to obtain the purest and most honest messages the soils can convey.
