Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Intense ruby with violet tones

Wild cherries with a hint of spice and vanilla aroma

Learn About Huarpe

We chose the name Huarpe in honor of the peaceful native inhabitants of Mendoza. It is a recent undertaking but has a long history, a history that begins many years before we were born and which is the continuation of the work of several generations in one of the world’s most privileged wine growing regions. This is the 100-year tradition of one of the most important wine families in Mendoza, the Toso family. Proud of our inheritance, and passionate about the unique characteristics of our terroir, we decided to share this 100-year old passion with the rest of the world.
