Carmelo Patti
The original garage wine maker of Mendoza, Carmelo has been rocking the boutique scene for longer than he’d like to remember. Try his old Cab.


Matias Riccitelli
One of Argentina’s most promising young producers, Riccitelli has good pedigree behind him with his father Jorge Riccitelli (Winemaker of the Year 2012 by Wine Enthusiast). However his wines stand out in their own right, and this family endeavor is beautiful to visit and taste.

A small grey square in prime estate Uco. La Azul has some balls to stand up here alongside million-dollar projects, but they do it with aplomb attracting passing tourists for their quaint and highly personalized visits and their hearty, good value reds.


Maal Wines
This is the dream of two friends who got together to make new wines from some of Argentina’s oldest vines. Check out their hundred-year-old vines and superb wines at the historical winery in Chacras.
