A Family Winery
In the region of Mendoza, Argentina, a family called the Arizus have chosen to settle down. This family, in search of a personal and professional goal, has bet everything on the crazy adventure of wine growing. This winery, small in size but big in investment and tradition, is located in Las Compuertas, Luján de Cuyo, at an altitude of 1150 metres on a side terrace 30 metres above the Mendoza riverbed.
The Ideal Location
This location and the hot, arid temperatures of Argentina give the wine a special flavour.
Beyond the experimentation that the Alicia Wines winery represents, these vineyards are a passion for the Arizu family and their 25 hectares of vines are a testimony to this.
This family doesn’t play by the rules and goes off the beaten track, unlike the vast majority of wineries they bet on a flawless modernity. They have chosen to opt for unknown, new, pioneering grape varieties, breaking the codes of a very traditional world of wine, especially with grape varieties.
The grape varieties are the following: Nebbiolo, Garnacha, Mencía, Nero D’avola, Monastrell, Bruñal, Savagnin. The idea here is to create wines that keep a link with the world-famous wines we know, while creating another reputation, another objective. The Arizu family’s objective is that of an “”””oenological Utopia””””. What is the future of oenology? The Azuri family has decided to become a major player in this utopia by taking a step aside from traditional viticulture methods.
The wines offered range from a medium to a higher range, they are wines to keep and which will not leave you indifferent.
