About us

Our Story

Our story began more than 30 years ago, when our visionary team recognized the unique potential of Mendoza and the majestic Andes, long before Argentina's oenological potential was recognized worldwide. With a bold vision and a firm conviction to create world-class fine wines, we ventured into the unexplored lands of the Andes in search of a refined varietal expression that could only be achieved on the cool, high-altitude terraces of Mendoza. It was in these places, where the sky and the earth meet in harmony, that Terrazas de los Andes was born. Since then, we have been constantly in search of perfection, exploring the limits of high-altitude viticulture and challenging established standards to create wines that are truly exceptional.
