Producer Information

In the late 1950s, the LVMH subsidiary Moet & Chandon sent its Chief Winemaker, Renaud Poirier, to Latin America to investigate the potential of the region for producing world-class wines. After traveling throughout the region, Poirier visited Lujan de Cuyo, in the province of Mendoza. Highly impressed with the local conditions for winemaking, and the presence of unique high elevation vineyards, Poirier and Moet & Chandon decided to launch its first subsidiary vineyards ever outside of France (Bodegas Chandon Argentina).

Following decades of successful sparkling wine production, in 1999 Moet Hennessy Wine Estates and Bodegas Chandon Argentina inaugurated the Terrazas de los Andes winery, a still wines initiative based on the pairing of fine wine varietals to unique altitudes within Mendoza's emblematic, snow-fed, high elevation vineyards. The three main terraces are the Tupungat Terrace (located southwest from the city of Mendoza), the Vistalba Terrace (located just north of the Mendoza River) and the Perdile Terrace (located in the Lujan de Cuyo district, south of the Mendoza River).

The winemaking philosophy of Terrazas de los Andes is based on cross-fertilization and integration of vineyard management and winemaking teams. This multidisciplinary approach takes form through the Terrazas de los Andes Technical Committee, which guides all primary quality, production and style decisions. With the vision of becoming the #1 value exporter from Argentina, Terrazas de los Andes has generated a track record of unquestionable product quality, and has pioneered winemaking at the ideal elevation based on 45 years of Bodegas Chandon experience in Argentina.
