The largest exported brand in Argentina, producing 2.5 million cases, Trapiche wines can be found almost everywhere in the World.
As with any of the “big boys” this gives them the opportunity to make wines at every price level, from the most affordable, to the very highest tiers.
Visitors will get a chance to tour the historic Renaissance inspired facility which was originally built in 1912, and only recently acquired by Trapiche.
Built along the train tracks by Northern Italian workers, the winery was designed to fill the never ending need for wine in what was even then, the growing city of Buenos Aires.
These original buildings were sold by the founding family in 1970 and sadly they consequently were abandoned and allowed to fall into disrepair.
Trapiche recognized the sprawling estate for what it is, a national treasure, and poured money, time and effort into bringing it back to its present glory.
The facility is a remarkable museum of Argentina’s wine past, while serving as a stellar example of the potential for Argentina’s wine future.
Surrounding the winery are the biodynamic vineyards that are the hallmark of the company’s 1,000 hectares of total plantings.
Even these huge expanses of land are not enough to help quench the thirst of those clamoring for more of these noble wines, and so more than 200 independent growers throughout the country do their part to supply the grapes for the wines that will end up on shelves in over eighty countries.
The visitor's center is located just outside of the city of Maipú, a convenient short ride from Mendoza.
