Santa Celina,Jacques & Francois Lurton, Mendoza
Over a decade ago, Jaques & Francois Lurton bought 225ha of land in Tunuyan in Vista Flores south of Mendoza at an altitude of 1,100m, and in Barrancas on the plateau to the east of Mendoza at an altitude of 600m. These terroirs were selected for the quality of the soil, climate and quantity of water available. As the vineyard area had never been previously cultivated the soils were totally free from chemicals. The soils are calcareous and the lack of organic matter happily restricts vigorous vine growth. The result is wines full of personality and varietal character.
