Vineyard Notes: Sustainably farmed, Finca Maggio vineyard, is 1.5 acres and planted in approximately 1950. The vineyard sits alongside the Los Patos River on stony soil at 1500 meters above sea level.

Winemaking Notes: 30% whole cluster, the wine went through a 30 day fermentation and then spent eight months on its lees in concrete egg. It's unfined and unfiltered. The Cara Sur wines are made in a tiny winery next to Pancho and Nuria’s home where they produce small quantities with minimal intervention. This is one of the most unique wines from one of the most underrated microclimates of Argentina.
