Set amid more than 1,500 acres in the prestigious Uco Valley, The Vines of Mendoza offers wine lovers the chance to become winemakers by owning a 1 – 10 acre professionally managed Private Vineyard.
Since 2004, The Vines has helped 185 wine lovers from around the world become winemakers – from planting and harvesting, bottling and labeling, and even shipping under the guidance of experts, including consulting winemaker Santiago Achaval, one of the top rated Argentine winemakers by Wine Spectator and Wine Advocate.
It started with a bold vision and a crazy dream.
In 2005, Pablo Gimenez Riili and Michael Evans recognized the world-class potential of Mendoza’s Uco Valley and invested in 650 acres of land. Their purpose: to make the dream of owning a vineyard and producing your very own premium quality wine a reality.
The Vines of Mendoza has since sold Private Vineyards to more than 230 owners from around the globe, expanded the property to 1,500 acres and established the highest quality winemaking enterprise in the region.
Each step of the way has been a labor of love and we enjoy nothing more than to share the fruits of our labor with you. We welcome visitors to our Mendoza City and Uco Valley Tasting Rooms where we showcase the best of Argentine boutique wines, including our own Recuerdo brand.
