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

Paula and Pablo Pizzella are relative newcomers to Mendoza. Out of love for nature, two teachers leave the city of Buenos Aires for Mendoza. Paula and Pablo Pizzella were physical education teachers. They immediately attracted attention with their wines from high-altitude, cool vineyards, at an altitude of 1100 meters. With their three children, they now focus on their 10 hectares of vineyard in the Uco Valley. This does mean that he is cared for with a lot of warmth and attention. No wonder this produces beautiful Malbecs. The vineyards were planted in 1998 and the soil consists of sandy loam, sand, silt and clay with 20% stones covered with limestone. The fruit comes first here, due to the beautiful aromatic grapes that are harvested and the careful use of wood. No more than 15% of the barrels are renewed annually, which produces a subtle wood aroma. A special, beautifully characterized Malbec.

The La Posta Pizzella Malbec (Pizzella Family Vineyard) has a deep ruby red color in the glass with fresh red berries, cassis, pure fruit, black cherries, vanilla, jam, juniper berries, herbs and chocolate in the nose. The Malbec has concentration and depth, blackcurrants and a hint of chocolate, beautiful wood, fine vanilla and black pepper, nice acidity, nice and firm and tasty. Powerful and intense red wine. Delicious with duck breast with berry sauce, grilled lamb chop, pepper steak, mature cheeses.

Vineyard for 2022 La Posta Pizzella Malbec

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
