Ave

Though the dynamic careers of Mario Pardini and Iacopo di Bugno transitioned many diverse disciplines including music, journalism, cinematography and economics there was always one inexorable constant: passion. Lured to Mendoza in 2004 the two young Tuscans were seduced by the sights, music, dance, food and intense fervor for life that pervades the Argentine culture. They were enraptured by the majestic mountains and the lush oasis of vineyards at the base of the Andes but what captivated them the most was what they affectionately referred to as Mendoza’s "eldest son": the Wine! Desiring to establish an avant-garde winery that celebrated their ancestry while optimizing the potential of Argentine viticulture they sought and acquired 40 hectares of prime vineyard in the prestigious region of Pedriel, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, counting among their neighbors some of the finest and most honored Argentine wineries. To complete the marriage of enological traditions they hired Tuscan winemaker Alberto Antonini to assist them in transforming their philosophies and passion into wines befitting the name "AVE," which translates as hail! and was the revered greeting the Romans offered to Caesar. As Italian wine makers in the new world Mario and Iacopo produce wines with depth and power yet still exhibit the structure and harmony reminiscent of the wines of their heritage. Of their "eldest son" they say "old age does not exist, only maturity."
