    Winemaker Notes

    This 100% Bequignol is from a single vineyard in the El Zampal region of the Uco Valley. The nose shows bright red fruits of ripe raspberry and cranberry with underlying notes of clove and cinnamon. The wine is light and silky with medium acidity and light tannin. Might be the only 100% Bequignol imported into the USA, or even made at all! Its a unique varietal but has some similarites to Gamay or Trosseau.

    Escala Humana Winemaker German Massera Winery Image
    Escala Humana Wine was started in 2015 by husband and wife team Ayelén and German Massera. German began making wine since 2003 while studying Enology and Viticulture in Mendoza and he has worked with Matias Michelini since 2016. German became interested in the history of the Uco Valley and it’s forgotten places and varietals. While the majority of the oldest vines are in Lujan and Maipu, there are a small handful of 4th and 5th generation producers in the Uco Valley who brought vines from Europe. Aye and German fell in love with two of these small vineyards where they grow Malvasia, Bequignol (a light bodied red varietal from Southwest France), Sangiovese and a few other varietals. These vineyards are located in El Zampal, a sub region of Tupungato in the Uco Valley where the soils are comprised of clay, loam and sand. We currently import two cuvees from Escala Humana, a Bequignol and a skin contact Malvasia. Aye and German make these wines in the town of Tupungato at Matias Michelini’s Passionate Winery. The grapes are sustainably farmed and the wines are fermented naturally and made with minimal intervention.

    Uco Valley Wine

    Mendoza, Argentina

    View all products

    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.

    This is the source of some of the best Malbec in Mendoza, which can range from value-priced to ultra-premium. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay also perform well here.

    Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal and Italy are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
