Below are the details for Augusto Pulenta, Argentina.
|Winery Name:||Augusto Pulenta, Argentina
|Other Details:||The construction of the winery that today holds between its thick adobe walls countless stories and memories began in 1902, in the San Martín District, between the Andes and the "Pie de Palo" Hills. As one of the few buildings that withstood the three earthquakes since 1944, it is almost a provincial heritage.
Colonisation of the area began in 1902, the same year the construction of the winery started on a small plot of land with traditional local materials: adobe for the walls, and a mixture of mud and reeds for the roof.
In those days the wine was stored in the cellar, in rows of small brick containers one above the other.
At harvest time, an Otto Deutz engine actuated the wooden pulleys of the crusher that received the wood buckets full of grapes.
The winery had the tallest and probably the first windmill in the area, an Agar Cross that, to this day continues moving its arms with the wind and drawing gushes of water to supply the taps, just as it did in the old days, and a Marmonier piston pump imported from France.
Our signature wine is made with carefully selected Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from our "Doña Filomena" vineyard and the highest standards. A careful combination of the oak properties provides a unique complexity to this limited quantity premium wine.
