Founded in 1975 by Bernardo Weinert, a Brazilian businessman of German origin, Cavas de Weinert has gone on to become one of highest-acclaimed wineries in Argentina. Bernardo invested heavily from the start, determined to make a top-quality wine in the best way possible, and this ethos persists to this day. His red wines are noticeable for being aged 2-5 years, and sometimes longer, in old foudres in a deep, cool, granite cellar. Over time this produces soft, mellow reds with the tertiary aromas of leather, tobacco and cedar for which Domaine Weinert's wines are renowned.
The Estate is based at Lujan de Cuyo, one of the areas best known for top-quality wines in Argentina's famous Mendoza province. The climate here is ideal for viticulture, and especially for the production of fine Malbec Argentina's signature grape and mainstay of Weinert's red blends.
In this one hour masterclass Iduna (Bernado's daughter) will delve into the history and the wines of Domaine Weinert.
