In 2005, the Bonnie family, owner of the renowned Château Malartic-Lagravière (Grand Cru Classé de Graves) and of the Château Gazin Rocquencourt (Pessac-Léognan), decided to leave France in search for new horizons in the world of wine. It all began with the acquisition, along with their partners, of a single 130-hectares (321 acres) block of land in the heart of the Uco Valley, to the south of the city of Mendoza. That is where Bodega DiamAndes was born, as a member of the prestigious Clos de los Siete group. The winery’s architectural design blends harmoniously into the stunning Andean scenery. In this context, the winemaking process has taken place under exceptional conditions since the 2007 vintage.
APPELLATION: Valle de Uco, Mendoza
TERROIR: Clay and sand with a large quantity of pebbles in the foothills of the Andes. Altitude of 1,100m.

TASTING NOTES: The characteristics of the Argentinean Malbec combined with the smoothness of the Syrah produce a very pleasant, full-bodied, rich wine. The palate develops ripe fruit and soft but intense tannins. Silky and smooth with a pleasant finish.
