|Solstício de Invierno –
Spanish, noun. (Winter Solstice). Observed when the sun reaches its lowest point in the sky, marking the shortest day and the longest night of each year.
Our critically-acclaimed Solsticio Malbec is hand-harvested from vineyards located at over 3,400 feet in elevation at the base of the Andes mountains.
Nestled in Argentina's premier wine-grape region, the Uco Valley's rocky soils, dry climate, pure snowmelt, and dazzling high-altitude sunshine conspire to develop grapes of astonishing intensity.
We are delighted to share with you the very essence of the Andes in a glass. Our Malbec is best enjoyed with friends and family after a generous decanting.
