VINEYARD

Finca Las Moras is a pioneer winery dedicated to the elaboration of high-quality wines in San Juan since the restructuring of the vineyards in 1993 by Richard Smart. The vineyards are surrounded by mulberry trees and therefore the name to the winery. San Juan focused in Shiraz and Malbec together with Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc is the new frontier for the production of fine wines in Argentina. The San Juan River is a vital source of irrigation in this region providing with pure melting snow water from the Andes to the Atlantic to give rise to Zonda and Tulum Valley unlike the Pedernal Valley – considered today as the valley by excellence for growing the highest-quality grapes – rise by glacier movements. Bright sunshine and extremely dry weather makes the valleys optimum for organically grown grapes. Finca Las Moras with more than 1.100 hectares of vineyards planted at the different valleys, is focused in sustainability, continue innovation and micro regions exploration culture contributing with complexity and elegance that impact in the fruit at each of its wines lines.
