Familia Bonfanti is situated on a beautiful property with olive trees intermingled in the vineyards and views of the Andes to one side. It is a boutique, family-run micro-winery located in the Perdriel sub-region within the Lujan de Cuyo region in Mendoza, Argentina. Roberto, the father, manages the vineyard; Sebastian, one of the sons, is the winemaker; and Alejandro, the other son, runs the business side.

The estate dates back to 1915 when the grandfather planted the first vineyard to Malbec. Today, the estate owns two small vineyards: one in Perdriel, Lujan de Cuyo that is planted to Malbec and one in Barrancas, Maipu that is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2005, the family completed it’s state of the art winery located on the property. Everything in the vineyard and cellar is done by hand, from harvest to bottling.

    (Year's Best Argentine Malbecs) The Bonfanti family has been growing grapes in Mendoza since 1915, but only in 2005 did they start bottling wine. This Malbec comes from the Terrada Vineyard, planted 85 years ago. It captures the warmth of the vintage in its dark flavors, notes of black cherry and spices propelled by intense tannins and firm acidity. This is for roasted lamb.
