Cueva de las Manos

Cueva de las Manos (Cave of the hands) is a pre-historic site in southern Patagonia featuring a very early form of human art. The cave, a UNESCO world heritage site, derives its name from the paintings of hands made by the indigenous inhabitants between 9,300 and 13,000 years ago. The images of hands are often negative (stencilled) and painted in colors ranging from red to white, black or yellow. These wines are a tribute to the legend and legacy of the ancient Patagonian indigenous groups; a history of independence and perseverance.

Cueva de las Manos is produced at a state-of-the-art winery, built with the purpose of achieving outstanding quality. The estate spreads over 300 ha (741 acres) in Agrelo and Lujàn de Cuyo, 34 km south of the city of Mendoza, at 950 meters above sea level. The winemaking process is focused on treating the grapes with great care and with strict control of every stage. People at the winery believe the Andean vision encompasses a deep understanding of this unique region, that shares thousands of miles of a common landscape, one culture and a special relationship with nature, creating the context for a common identity of Argentinean viticulture.
