Laura Catena - daughter of the famous wine pioneer Nicolas Catena - set up the series La Posta wines to give the smaller winegrowers of Mendoza their own stage, instead of a nameless place in the local cooperative. The wines are called La Posta, after the typical local pub that you will find everywhere on the side of the road.

Estela Armando's family started their own vineyards in 1887, a year after they emigrated from Piemonte. This Bonarda comes from a vineyard planted in 1963 by her grandfather. Perfect care and little irrigation results in a high quality Bonarda. The 'local' Bonarda grape originates from Italy, but has been in Argentina long enough to be fully established there. It is wonderful for making smooth wines that are bursting with fruit. But there are also more serious specimens, of which this one is one. The wine has a lot of power, and can therefore also undergo wood aging. It matures for 10 months in barriques, of which 70% French and 30% American oak. They are exclusively used barrels, to keep the fruit intact. It is therefore an ideal combination between wood and fruit, with a special depth.

The La Posta Armando Bonarda (Estela Armando) is an ideal combination between wood and fruit, with a special depth, powerful in the scent, sweet fruit, licorice, thyme, vanilla, prunes and chocolate, raspberries, lush and beautifully smooth, coffee , leather, tobacco, wonderfully rounded. Powerful red wine. Tasteful with game stew, hare pepper, entrecote from the grill, matured cheeses.

Vineyard for 2020 La Posta Fazzio Armando Bonarda

In the Argentinian tradition, La Posta is a tavern where the (wine) farmers come together for a glass of wine, to share stories about the harvest and of course for their daily siesta. Each La Posta label illustrates a story of these individual families. One sip full of flavor and you will welcome these breeders into your own family, into your glass and into your heart.

Angel Paulucci, from car mechanic to owner of a vineyard.

The Pizzella Family, for the love of nature, these two teachers have left town.

Domingo Fazzio, the dancing winegrower who loves women.

Estela Armando, from Italy to share wine with the trans-European railway workers
