Chile is squeezed between the ocean and the mighty Andes mountains. This serves the vineyards of our next featured country extremely well. That is Argentina!
Calling in from Mendoza, Ernesto Bajda winemaker for Bodega Catena Zapata. This is a winery over four generations that has been a major player in transforming and elevating the quality and profile of the wines of Argentina. An incredible story.
“What sets Nicolás Catena Zapata apart from other top producers in the world is his unflagging dedication to researching, studying, and learning every aspect of viticulture and winemaking that could potentially improve his wines”.
“Nicolás Catena was the true pioneer and is still the most important wine personality in Argentina. They are so forward thinking and smart as they are still at the head of quality wines in the country. Doing amazing research and never resting on their laurels”.
