In 1992, under the management of the Spanish businessman Florencio Aldrey Iglesias, the winery got the name it has today: Casa Vincola Reyter. As part of a restructuring process, Reyter is reconditioning its buildings, improving its facilities and restoring its front, more than a 100 years old. It is also working to improve the quantity and quality of its production, and to adapt its buildings for visitors who wish to know about the institution’s activities.
Our winery is a unique place to enjoy the beauty of Mendoza through wine, art and our farm, with various fruit orchards surrounding the winery. Our grapes are organic, committing to the care and preservation of our environment. We do not use agricultural machinery, chemical fertilizers or pesticides, which are not authorized by the Reglamentacion Organica of Argentina. Malbec is the emblematic grape of the winery, brought over from France centuries earlier. View all Finca La Martina Wines

Notable FactsUnlike its Chilean neighbor, Argentina's vineyards are spread out around the country. The best known region is Mendoza, almost parallel to Santiago to the west. Mendoza contains the sub-regions of Maipu (pronounced MY-pu) and San Rafael. Grape-wise, the most important white is Chardonnay, making wine similar to California's style on the variety. Another fun white grape to try is Torrontes. Almost only grown in Argentina, Torrontes makes wines that are crisp, aromatic and easy-drinking. Some of the best versions of this wine come from the northern region of Salta, with very high altitude vineyards. As for the reds, Cabernet Sauvignon is the main grape for many wines leaving the country, but Malbec, the grape Argentinians like to call their own, makes very distinctive wines that are structured, dense and velvety. Many more varieties happily grow in the country, but for export, and consistent quality, these are the primary grapes.
