Producer Profile; Familia Zuccardi is a family company founded in 1963 by Engineer Alberto Zuccardi. In those times, he began planting vines in Maipú (province of Mendoza), experimenting with an irrigation system of his own creation based on a method used in California. Forty five years after the starting point of this path, there are three generations joined by a passion for wine. In September 2007, the prestigious magazine DECANTER acknowledged José Alberto and Sebastián Zuccardi as being among the five most influential personalities of Argentine Wine.
They are the only winery of its type in Argentina to have an experiential area in which 35 new varieties of wines are developed. Thanks to this constant innovation work, the winery has successfully introduced wines created out of non traditional grape varieties in Argentina.
Thus, Familia Zuccardi is highly acknowledged as being a pioneer in the production of varietal wines such as: Tempranillo, Bonarda; Viognier; Caladoc, Marselán and Ancellotta. Moreover, the first late harvest wine of Argentina –Santa Julia Tardío– and the first fortified Malbec wine –Malamado– were developed in the winery.
