Established in 1996, Finca el Origen is the first Chilean winery in Argentina. With a surface area under vine of 229 hectares, the vineyards situated at 1,200 meters above sea level on the Andean foothills were the first ever to be planted in Vista Flores, Uco valley, in 1998. The grapes used in its Mendocinean wines are all sourced from its own vineyards and bear the distinctive characteristics of high-altitude, continental-climate wines. Finca el Origen's signature varieties are Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Torrontés.

The Uco Valley is located at the foothills of the Andes mountain range.  Millions of years ago, some parts of the mountain range were submerged under the sea, which explains the presence of sea fossils like the ammonite which represents the wine through our logo.  They are considered silent witnesses of the orgin of the Andes and today, by being part of our genuine terroir, are witnesses of the origin our wine.

The water used to irrigate the vineyards comes from a stream that passes through our La Esperanza vineyard.  It flows from a natural glacier-fed spring in Tunuyan.  The purity of this fresh water is transferred to the grapes.

The well-drained soil of the Uco Valley is poor, rocky and filled with pebbles.  The warm, dry breezes of spring and summer in this dry continental climate make it very easy to farm sustainably.  Vineyards are naturally healthy as pests and diseases have fewer chances to survive.  Cover crops help to retain some fertile nutrients.  Pesticides are used as a preventive practice, and applied as little as possible.

Winemaker Notes
The intense violet color makes it a worthy representative of the wines from Los Chacayes. A wine of distinct aromatic complexity, with outstanding notes of red fruits, floral aromas of violets, vanilla and cigar. The mouth confirms the presence of black fruits like blackberries and spices. The medium structure and silky tannins are perfectly balanced with the delicious natural acidity, leading to a prolonged finish.
Best paired with leaner red meats, creamy mushroom sauces, melted cheese, particularly blue.
