The winery is located at Cruz de Piedra, Maipú, in the Central Region of Mendoza. It is a building from the year 1970 which was designed by architect ‘Chicho’ Pitela. The structure is of Mediterranean style with wide galleries, arcades and vitreaux which confer a really warm illumination and grant the place with an environment that reflects the one from where the vineyards are grown. The winery is surrounded byvineyards and olive trees that overlook the mountain range, from which Tupungato hill and the renowned Cordón del Plata must be highlighted.
Bodega Argento embraces a constant spirit of improvement by linking technology with passion, art, knowledge and the Argentinian oenological tradition with the clear goal of respecting both sustainability and the environment.
The style of Argento wines is based on fineness and aroma concentration, freshness and a clear expression of the terroir and varietal typicity. Therefore, we have winepresses with selection tables prepared for the reception of quality grapes, stainless steel tanks with cooling jacket, concrete pools with epoxy covering and barrels of different dimensions (including big casks) which allow us to elaborate diverse wine styles from the same varietal so we can confer complexity and its own identity to each line of our wines.
Even though the architectural style is maintained and the oenologists’ passion prevails, Bodega Argento holds a cutting-edge technology that ensures quality and that allows us to be one of the top wineries regarding exports to markets as demanding as the European one. The elaboration processes meet the highest quality standards. Bodega Argento possesses quality certifications granted by different organisations (HCCP, ISO 22000) and is one of the few Argentinian wineries with the ‘canal verde’ (green channel) tag granted by the Instituto Nacional de Vitivinicultura (Argentinian Viticulture and Viniculture National Institute).
Besides, Bodega Argento has the certification to elaborate organic wine with grapes coming from our plot in Altamira –which also possesses an organic certification– as the first step towards sustainability. Our goal is to attain an organic certification in all the vineyards we own.
