Meet the maker: Trapiche

Trapiche Mendoza Winery

Trapiche Wines, located at the foothills of the Andes Mountains in Mendoza, Argentina, has a long and successful history since its founding in 1883. Being one of the oldest wine brands in Argentina, they are now the largest exported premium wine in the country.

Trapiche is a hugely positive force that drives the national wine industry and economy. Trapiche Wines owns and operates numerous vineyards throughout Argentina that encompass nearly 2,500 acres. They also source grapes from over 200 independent producers, making them a vital part of the agricultural industry.

Originally a French grape, Malbec really took hold of Argentina and now the Malbec is often considered a South American grape. The terroir and soil are ideal for growing Malbec. However, they produce a large variety of other wines that are well-deserving of your attention as well.

Dedication to the environment

Trapiche Wines takes great care to create and sustain a healthy and biodynamic environment in their vineyards and wineries. Creating a balanced environment in the vineyard that allows for biodiversity and the recovery of bacteria and important minerals in the soil is largely due to the fact that Trapiche does not use chemicals, herbicides, or fungicides in their vineyards.

Trapiche is unique in the fact that all of the work they do in the vineyard is influenced by the moon cycles, with the idea that vine growth is affected by moon phases and planetary positioning.

Trapiche Wines has a widely expansive wine portfolio that expands further than Malbec. Other varietals include Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Moscato, Pinot Grigio, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, and Syrah.

Each of these wines is sourced from the best vineyards in regions where the soil and climate compliment each varietal best. They also have a single varietal series and a very expansive Malbec portfolio.
