Our
history

The clock begins ticking on a day in 1888 in Vistalba, a town in the Luján de Cuyo region of Mendoza, Argentina, when a group of Italian immigrants dug their hands into the earth to plant the first vines and found our winery.

 

Since that very first day, several families shared their winemaking secrets with one another, along with their profound love of nature, respect for the essence of each terroir, and the value of patience.

 

In 1969, the Nieto and Senetiner families acquired the estate and turned the page onto a new chapter of growth and development. They expanded the facilities and consolidated the presence of a wine that had already become a mainstay in the history of great Argentine libations.

 

In 1998, Nieto Senetiner became part of the winery group of the Pérez Companc family. Committed to the highest standards of winemaking and quality, and backed by continual investments in both vineyards and technology, Nieto Senetiner has since worked to consolidate its leading market position and continue evolving without renouncing its noble origins.

Our
Winery

At our winery, the history that started out in the vineyards continues. It is a history that combines tradition and the work of artisans with technology, creating one-of-a-kind experiences when it comes time to enjoy fine wine.

 

In a setting that brings to mind historic colonial architecture, tanks of different sizes preserve the quality of the grapes we use to make our wines. The wine production and storage in oak barrels is a process involving great care, and we have a special sector in the winery where we produce sparkling wines using the Charmat and Champenoise methods.

Built in 1888, with a colonial style, the echoes of history and the ancestral voices of our wines resonate in Vistalba.
