We have tasted over a thousand wines since we began importing from Argentina. In that time, we have discovered a handful of grape growers whose results in the vineyards with specific varietals have been truly amazing--year in, year out. Our first encounter with many of these growers was at a posta del vinatero, or "tavern of the grape grower". Here they drank wine and spoke passionately for hours about their soils, their vines, and their quest for superior flavors in their grapes. We salute the hard work and skill of these growers by offering these vineyard-designated releases made solely with their special grapes.
Each La Posta label illustrates a story of these individual families. One taste and you will welcome these growers into your own families, into your glass, and into your heart. Winemaker Luis Reginato is a highly trained and respected vineyard consultant and winemaker with long experience at his family's winery in Mendoza. He was our natural choice because of his close relationship with local small growers and his intimate understanding of the regions' vineyards.
