Established in the late 1990s, Bodegas Salentein is a privately-owned estate of almost 5,000 acres, of which 1,124 acres are planted to vine. Located in Mendoza’s famed Uco Valley, Salentein produces a remarkable collection of wines from vineyards planted in some of the highest elevations on the planet.
As pioneers in Argentina’s Uco Valley, Salentein is committed to mastering the art of high altitude vineyard cultivation and producing the finest expression of South American wines while respecting the native land, people and culture. José Galante, Salentein’s distinguished Chief Winemaker, is one of the most influential in Argentina and has been called the “Father of Argentine Malbec.” Galante works closely with consultant and legendary winemaker Paul Hobbs to craft expressive wines with viticultural depth and a precise balance of flavors.
Bodegas Salentein is a wine destination like no other, and the property includes a world-class winery and cellars, a 125-acre nature preserve, the showpiece Killka Center for Culture and the Arts, a nearby lodge (the Posada Salentein, offering an elegant and relaxed retreat into nature), and the landmark Chapel of Gratitude, a non-denominational chapel built using ancient local stonework techniques.
