Born in Argentina to French parents, Patricio Gouguenheim’s love for wine started at the age of 7 when he was given a little bit of wine (mixed with sparkling water!) with every meal. Patricio’s job (mergers and acquisitions) took him to Mendoza, now the epicentre of Argentina’s wine industry. It was during the year 2002, when Argentina went into a big economic crash, that he decided to enter the wine market, as everyone else was leaving. Patricio found a very old winery located in the Uco Valley, 70 km away from Mendoza, with a lot of small tanks, ideal for production of high quality wines, and that was the start of his venture. Gouguenheim winery has now become one of the best performing/top quality wineries in Argentina. View our selection.
The vines are irrigated with melt water from the Andes and produce aromatic and delicate wines due to the large ‘diurnal’ temperature, offering an abundance of bright sunshine and heat during the day and cool temperature at night.
