Luca wines are Laura Catena's wines focused on top vineyards in the Uco Valley...most notably in the highest altitudes near Gualtallary and the new appelation of Paraje Altamira.
The G Lot wines come from vineyards just above the famed Adrianna vineyard.
The winemaker is Estela Perinetti whose family is originally from the Piemonte in Italy and has been making wine in Mendoza since the late 1800s. She was formerly the winemaker for Gascon and still makes the wines for CARO which is a joint venture between Catena and Lafite.
VINEYARD: The Syrah grapes for this wine come from the Laborde Family vineyard located in the La Consulta area of the Uco Valley. This vineyard is comprised of ungrafted vines with an average age of 46 years. The vine selection was done by Luis Laborde in a double massal selection. He first scoured the Rhone valley collecting a mix of different Syrah vines. He then planted them in a test vineyard in Mendoza and did another selection of the best vines to plant in the Laborde vineyard in La Consulta.
