Almarada wines we sell
Uco Valley, Argentina
ALMARADA IS THE EXPRESSION HIS LIFE-LONG STUDY OF NATURE, CLONAL SELECTION, SOIL AND CLIMATE. THE WORD IS A FUSION OF "ALMA" (SOUL) AND "ARADA" (PLOWED) WHICH EMBODIES THE UNION BETWEEN THE SOUL AND AGRICULTURE.
Antonio Mas was born in Mendoza and holds a BA in Agronomy from Universidad Nacional de Cuyo. He has devoted his time to study every clone from the varieties he has cultivated and vinified and is one of the leading experts in his field.
In 1992 he established the first Argentinean boutique winery: Finca La Anita. Antonio was inspired by the concept of French Choteau: vineyards of great genetic and variety purity, identifying clones of every variety, and growing grapes and vinify them near the same place where they were planted, from specific plots, true single vineyards. In 2010
Antonio decided to create his own, top-notch equipment as there were no options in the market. He had to import barrels as there were no other ways to get them. He developed a new vineyard in Tupungato at an elevation of 1.100 meters above sea level. The result was the beginning of boutique wineries in Argentina, a term which he never felt comfortable with. Thanks to 50 years of winemaking he is considered one of the most prestigious Argentinean winemakers. His new winery Antonio Mas Wines is the pinnacle of his career.
