It was in 1988 that Michel Rolland discovered Argentina. He was immediately captivated by the country – its atmosphere, the people, the beauty of its landscapes, and became very quickly convinced that Argentina offered all the necessary conditions for the production of a truly great wine.
Looking for the ideal “terroir”, it was at roughly 100 km south of Mendoza, the last major town before the climb up into the Andes, that Michel Rolland, discovered the “campo” at an altitude of 1100 meters . They were more than 800 magnificent hectares, uniquely exposed, with soil composed of stone, clay and sand. One meter down, you have a bed of gravel, which provides natural drainage. Water comes from springs fed by melting snow and glaciers up in the Andes Mountains.
