One of Argentina’s most prominent family-owned wineries ‘Familia Falasco’ bought ‘Vinas de Balbo’ in 1982. Today it is a leader in South America and features successfully in many international markets.
Their success is the result of sourcing grapes from high altitude vineyards located within different climates and regions of Mendoza, where winters are chilly, summers are dry and hot, nights are cool and the vines are fed by the snow melt water from the Andes Mountains.
From these conditions, coupled with the support of a modern winery and a hardworking team, they are able to grow high quality grapes and produce wines with great character.
