About the Producer
Pedro Rosell is Argentina’s King of Bubbles - he and his team strive to create the country’s most expressive, sophisticated sparkling wines.
The winery is located in the old winemaking region of Perdriel, south of the Mendoza River, at the foot of the Cordon del Plata mountain range.
All wines are made from high elevation estate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines, many of which sit at an unbelievable 4,600+ feet. Dosage is low across the
board, resulting in verve/tension levels that truly rare in this part of the world.
