Katena Zapata, the most awarded winery in Argentina, was founded in 1902 by Italian emigrant Nicola Katena. The family winery is known for its pioneering role in the rebirth of Malbec and the discovery of extreme altitude terroirs in the Andean foothills of Mendoza.

The Adrianna Vineyard family vineyard is the first vineyard in South America to receive 100 points from Robert Parker Wine Advocate, as well as excellent points from James Suckling and Falstaff. Drinks Katena Zapata International Magazine No. 1 “The most admired wine in the world 2020”.

For over 100 years, four generations of the Katena family have shaped the future of Argentina’s oldest winery, still in family hands. Each generation played a role: Nicola, the founder, sailed from the Italian city of Le Marche to the New World in 1898 to fulfill his dream of planting a vineyard in Malbec. His son, Domingo Vicente Catena, was named “Master Blender” for his ability to make delicious blends of red grapes from the Uko Valley.

Bodega Katena Zapata is one of the pioneers of Alpine Malbec in Argentina. The Katena family started making wine in Mendoza in 1902. Nicholas Katena, a third generation winemaker of the family, was one of the first to see the potential of the Mendoza mountain vineyards to produce high quality Malbec wine. In 1994 he became the first Argentinean to produce a world-class Malbec bottling under the Catena brand. Nicholas joins his daughter, Dr. Laura Catena, in a relentless search for the family’s high quality vineyards. Laura has done great work in introducing Malbec breeding and other plant varieties, soil and climate analysis, as well as sustainable methods in Mendoza. The chief winemaker Alejandro Vigil has been working with Catena Zapata since 2002 and is working with Laura and Nicolas to make wines that express the vines and the taste of the family.
