Gen del Alma began in 2011, when five wine loving friends, including Gerardo Michelini, of Zorzal, and his wife and winemaker Andrea Mufatto, planted a 7 hectare vineyard in Gualtallary. From the beginning, the project aimed to showcase the terroir of the Uco Valley though the crafting of minimal intervention Argentinian wines that harken back to the old world style of balance and freshness.
Today, Gen del Alma's wines are made by Belen Sanchez and the vineyard is farmed by Matias Prieto. Located in a small winery built in 1952 in the town of Tupungato, they use concrete eggs, clay amphora, various sizes of oak foudre and cement tanks. Despite the change of hands, the original spirit of the project lives on; year after year, these are compelling wines with remarkable purity, drinkability and finesse.
