Ungrafted heirloom vines transported from Europe have long honored their noble heritage. Though they are now resolutely Argentinian in character.
You can’t think your way into making an exceptional wine. A passion for winemaking is and always will be the missing link between good and exceptional.
The winery is housed in a building dating from 1898. Restored and thoroughly modernized, you can still feel its amazing history the moment you set foot inside.
Bringing passion to everything they do, amazing chefs, journalists, artists and estate members talk candidly about what inspires them. And, of course, the role Terrazas wines play in their lives. Meet them.
Good food and fine wine fit so intrinsically together one might wonder why they are ever apart. Allow us to inspire you with these mouth-watering creations conceived by culinary friends of the winery.
Every year, Terrazas de los Andes holds events as renowned and highly anticipated as the wines themselves. Join us for the latest highlights and feel as if you were there.
At Terrazas de los Andes – At one with the music
To launch Terrazas Single Vineyard, Bodega Terrazas de los Andes organized a two day event on April 26th & 27th, an exclusive voyage dedicated to the correlation between making wine and making music. Music is the soul’s expression. It reflects the emotions and sensibilities of its creator. Interpreting music is like interpreting a terroir. When a wine expresses its natural terroir it is as if it is allowed to solo, to soar, becoming a living being with emotions and personality. Music helps us to express the sensory experience of wine, featuring the winemaker in his rightful position as composer/creator.
Since the creation of the Terrazas de los Andes winery, identifying the best locations to develop Single Vineyard Terraces was always the first priority. For the best fincas, estates on which to grow our signature varietals, aren’t easy to come by. As the largest owner of vineyards in Vistalba and Perdriel, the best terroirs for Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon respectively, we’re proud to say the land has served us well.
The Single Vineyard range is the ultimate experience: the varietal purity of the fruit and the supreme expression of our terroir. Terrazas de los Andes Single Vineyard wines come from two treasured fincas in Mendoza: Las Compuertas in Vistalba for Malbec and Los Aromos in Perdriel for Cabernet. Truly authentic style, elegance, concentration and highly intense, with rich and ripe fruit and unique aromatic persistence. The perfect vintage. Music for the soul indeed.
Terrazas Single Vineyard tasting: one vintage, one wine, one soloist :
This amazing two day event allowed an exclusive group the chance to discover the story of our unique Single Vineyard wines in a magical setting, as well as the pieces of music that best express each one of a kind vintage. To every millésime its instrument, played solo during the tasting. All of the senses were thus involved as single instruments illustrated the idea of “single” vineyard.
During this invitation-only event our guests rediscovered the history of Terrazas Single Vineyard wines. Indeed, this vertical tasting took them on a journey through the time, so that they traveled from 1996 to 2008 with Single Vineyard La Compuertas and from 1999 to 2007 with Single Vineyard Los Aromos.
This event was a great opportunity to reaffirm the pillars of Terrazas de los Andes Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon varietals. We believe that the two, sourced from our own high altitude vineyards, form the very DNA of Terrazas, a veritable symphony of the mountains. The Terrazas philosophy remains as it was at the beginning: to find the best Argentine terroirs and let them shine them in our wines.
"The Single Vineyard Bodegas Terrazas de los Andes is for us the most refined expression of an intense solo, a single terroir wine, from a single vineyard"
