Learn About Vina Pargua
Pargua winemaker Jean Pascal Lacaze believes that
wine is only as good as the grapes from which it is
made. At his Maipo Valley vineyard, Lacaze grows
grapes sustainably and organically, uses the best fruit,
ages the wine in individually selected barrels, and
blends the juice at just the right time.

Mapuche language. Like the artwork, which will change with every vintage,
Pargua’s wines are vibrant, expressive, and harmonious.
