Migration from Piedmont, Italy to Mendoza, Argentina
Celestino Cassone, a native Piedmontese, moved to Argentina in the late 19th century. In 1950, his son Roberto purchased the vineyards in Algarrobo Grande, Junín, and Mendoza and started their family vine cultivation. He owned a winery named El Trébol, which was later acquired by his son, Eduardo. Today, he continuously puts hard work and passion for keeping Roberto’s wine traditions alive. In the late 20th century, Eduardo, along with his children, established a new, Mendoza-style winery. Equipped with modern machinery, the owner has introduced innovative ideas combined with conventional methods of wine production.
