About us

Our Story

Terrazas de los Andes' journey towards the convergence of sky and earth began in the 90s when a team of winemakers and agronomists ventured into unexplored territories: the extreme heights of the Andes. Equipped with scarce tools, this team set out to create fresh wines, representative of the most extreme regions of this magical mountain range. It was then, due to their tireless pursuit of the ideal altitude to capture the magical freshness of the mountain, that they became part of history.

Today, Terrazas de los Andes cultivates a mosaic of more than 200 high-altitude vineyard plots, using a precision irrigation system that minimizes the use of water from the Andes glaciers. With Malbec as the focal point of this vision, Terrazas de los Andes creates full-bodied wines that are both aromatic and elegantly fresh.

The adventure continues: At Terrazas de los Andes, we believe that new oenological frontiers are ready to be discovered.

A longstanding history

Transforming Horizons in Argentine Viticulture

Anticipating the opportunity to transform the Argentine wine industry, Chandon's president, Jean-Pierre Thibaud, forms a team of young agronomists and winemakers to lead an innovative project. Their tireless insistence on exploring never-before-traveled regions led this team to achieve goals that once seemed unattainable.


1991 - 1995 A Mission That Took Years

Team members explored the base of the Andes, using a traditional military altimeter to investigate the influence of altitude on terroir. There, they rediscovered Las Compuertas, one of the oldest vineyards in Mendoza, and the Uco Valley, where they began planting at altitudes never before imagined.
