Overview of the Wine
To give birth to a wine of excellence, the vine needs a terroir which challenges its potential to the fullest. To give birth to a soccer player of excellence, what is needed is a potrero, a makeshift soccer field, which stimulates his virtues and forges his talents. In Argentina, for many a far-off land in the confines of the world, both concepts, terroir and potrero, blend. As if blessed by contradiction, the poorer the terroir and the potrero, the better the results. Vinos de Potrero is located in Gualtallary, the winemaking micro-region at 1350 m above sea level in the middle of the Andes Range.

Whoever stands out playing ball on a land which is barren, uneven and puddled will boast an elegant game which will set him apart from other players in the best stadiums in the world. Any vine which endures the crude cold of the night and the blazing sun of the day, the absence of humidity and the heights of the Andes will yet thrive and offer fruit which will ripen to be truly exceptional.
