A project born of two spirits moved by intertwined passions: music and wine. Marcelo Pelleriti, winemaker and musician. Pedro Aznar, musician and maker of wines.
Marcelo y Pedro met in August 2012. Immediately the amount of things in common it became clear in an intense conversation from the city of Mendoza to Uco Valley. They noted that the passion for making wine and making music were going through the same way. Pedro confided that for years he has dreamed of having a vineyard and live the wine world from within. Marcelo told about the Villa Winery in The Vines of Mendoza, a unique terroir for renowned winemakers to have their own projects ... thus was born this wonderful venture.
With a winning combination of cool weather, high elevation and well-draining alluvial soils, it is no surprise that Mendoza’s Uco Valley is one of the most exciting up-and-coming wine regions in Argentina. Healthy, easy-to-manage vines produce low yields of high-quality fruit, which in turn create flavorful, full-bodied wines with generous acidity.
One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
