    Finca La Martina, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina
    Casa Vinícola Reyter, originally called "Establecimiento Vitivinícola Antonio Giunta e Hijos" was founded in 1888 and it is one of the few located near the capital of Mendoza. With a production of a million and a half liters and set up more than 100 years ago, it has been recovered, remodeled and adapted in order to maintain the historical interest of its antiquity, transmitting that unique aroma those centenarian elements can produce, in a modern and technological environment that guarantees the quality of our products..

    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.

    Uco Valley

    View all wine

    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.

    Known for its big, bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec is most famous for its runaway success in Argentina. However, the variety actually originates in Bordeaux, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. After being nearly wiped out by a devastating frost in 1956, it was never significantly replanted, although it continued to flourish under the name Côt in nearby Cahors. A French agronomist who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. But it did not gain its current reputation as the country's national grape until a surge in popularity in the late 20th century.

    In the Glass

    Malbec typically expresses deep flavors of blackberry, plum and licorice, appropriately backed by aromas of freshly turned earth and dense, chewy tannins. In warmer, New World regions, such as Mendoza, Malbec will be intensely ripe, and full of fruit and spice. From its homeland in Cahors, its rusticity shines; dusty notes and a beguiling bouquet of violets balance rich, black fruit.

    Perfect Parings

    Malbec’s rustic character begs for flavorful dishes, like spicy grilled sausages or the classic cassoulet of France’s Southwest. South American iterations are best enjoyed as they would be in Argentina: with a thick, juicy steak.

    Sommelier Secret

    If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet. With its combination of bold flavors and soft tannins, it will appeal to basically anyone who enjoys red wine. Malbec also wins bonus points for affordability, as even the most inexpensive examples are often quite good.
