About The Producer
  • Brothers Héctor and Pablo Durigutti are two of Argentina's most sought after consulting ecologists.
  • Hector first became known for his work alongside Alberto Antonini as one of the co-founders of Altos Las Hormigas, the forward thinking project that placed Argentine Malbec on the international map in the late nineties.
  • Pablo comes with his own star studded resume which includes a stint at Catena and connections with more old-vine landowners than anyone else in the region.
About the Wine
  • This is the top Cabernet Franc bottling from the most critically acclaimed producers of Cabernet Franc in Mendoza
  • Sourced from two low-yielding vineyards that date back to the mid-1950’s
