Founded 130 years ago, “La Celia” is the oldest winery in the Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina.
It was the first winery in the region where the Malbec variety was planted, which is now the signature variety of the country worldwide.
Eugenio Bustos, founder of La Celia, received the Malbec vines in exchange for the best horse. And he was the first to plant this variety, which comes from France, in the Uko Valley.
The result is that Finca La Celia was born in 1890, with his daughter’s name. Today this tradition lives in our wines, which are the expression of a terroir unique in the world.
Thanks to the winning combination of cool climate, high altitude and well drained alluvial soils, it is no wonder that the Uco Valley in Mendoza is one of the most exciting and promising wine regions in Argentina. The healthy and easy to manage vineyards produce low yields of high quality fruit, which in turn create aromatic, rich wines with a generous acidity.
It is the source of some of the best Malbec wines in Mendoza, which can vary from price to ultra-premium. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet France and Chardonnay also perform well here.
Very popular, the Argentine Malbec is a red, medium-hot, dry red wine with a strong impression of dark fruits in the nose and sky. This wine tends to have softer tannins than its French counterpart.
Largely dependent on where it is grown, in terms of flavor variations, the Argentine Malbec has quickly become a world favorite thanks to the characteristics that give the fruit a mountainous climate and soil.
Originally from France, it is one of the 5 original varieties of Bordeaux grapes. It is almost not cultivated in France.
It found a surprisingly hospitable home in the mountains of Argentina, from where one of the best selling malbecs in the world grows.
