Location and Climate: 

Renacer is located in Perdriel, Luján de Cuyo, which is considered to be the premier area for growing Malbec in Mendoza, Argentina. In Perdriel, the climate, soil, pure water descending from the Andes Mountains, temperature amplitude and high sun intensity create the perfect growing environment for Malbec. Average rain in Mendoza per year is around 200mm, and a plant needs around 1,000 mm, so they are allowed to water the vines. Temperature amplitude between day and night can top 20°C in summer. The atmosphere is pure and transparent, allowing the plants to develop great photosynthesis. Around 90% of the days are with clear skies, no clouds.

History:

The Reich Roccatagliata family built the winery in 2002. It’s a fusion of modern and classic architecture: well-defined, straight lines combine with Tuscan inspired walls to provide a highly attractive and unique building. The project was designed to produce just five lines of wine and to create a specialist Malbec in Mendoza.

Winery: 

The winery has over 1.8 million litres of capacity divided between stainless steel tanks, cement tanks and oak barrels. It is equipped with top of the line Italian technology, hundreds of French Oak Barrels, 40 hectares of land planted with Malbec with some vineyards being more than 90 years old.

The winery in under the supervision of talented winemakers: the Tuscan born Alberto Antonini, who is considered one of the most renowned flying winemakers from Italy, and Pablo Profili, an expert on the terroir of Malbec. The winemakers have developed a great synergy and together produce splendid wines that have been praised by the international press.

Viticulture Information: 

In addition to their own vineyards, Renacer works with and buys from local producers to take advantage of the different terroirs in Mendoza such as Valle de Uco, Luján de Cuyo and Medrano. The winery uses water that comes from the melted Andean snows. This pure water transforms arid Mendoza into an oasis which, in conjunction with the irrigation system that carefully measures each drop of water that is given to the vines, creates small, high quality grapes. 

The grapes are hand harvested early in the morning and are placed in 17kg plastic boxes to prevent the grapes from being crushed. The first grape selection is made in the vineyard and the second selection in the cantina where only the best grapes and clusters are selected for vinification. 

The combination of Precision Viticulture, high density planting, drip irrigation, hail net, low yields per hectare, and human labour create the conditions to develop top of the line Malbec. The soil is poor in organic matter.
