Senetiner Winery: In 1888, Italian immigrants founded te winery and grew the first vineyards in Vistalba, Luján de Cuyo, province of Mendoza. Over the first decades of the last century, the winery was run by several families who succeeded in passing on the secret of fine winemaking and the love for their land.
In 1969 it is acquired by the families Nieto and Senetiner, who expand the facilities signalling the beginning of a new stage of growth and brand development. In 1998 it becomes part of the Grupo de Negocios de Molinos Río de la Plata. The winery holds a consolidated leadership position, committed to the highest production and quality standards, backed by a continuous investment plan both in estates and process technology.
The winery has a consolidated position of leadership in all segments of wines and foaming of medium and high range, where it participates, committed to the highest standards of processing and quality, supported by a continuous plan of investments in new farms and process technology.
Vistalba Winery: Coming from an Italian family, Carlos Pulenta is the founder of the winery, he is the eldest son of Don Antonio Pulenta, one of the founders of Bodega Peñaflor. The winery is inspired by the Creole culture appealing to the avant-garde technology and paying tribute to the traditional method of winemaking, designed so that the whole process of elaboration is done by gravity and without the use of pumps.
It was in 2009 when Alejandro Bulgheroni, linked through several projects with the agro-industrial sector since 1999, began his participation in Bodega Vistalba working together with Carlos in a common goal: “to elaborate world-renowned high-end wines, with marked identity and personality ”.
Kaiken Winery: The kaikén is a Patagonian goose that flies freely between Chile and Argentina.
This is the same journey that our founder, Aurelio Montes, made, bringing his knowledge and enthusiasm to the Argentinian land, and creating Kaiken Winery.
Inspired by the flight of the caiquén, the brand is an invitation to spread your wings, to let yourself go and enjoy freely, to embark on a sensuous journey of aromas and flavours, that evoke the landscape of Mendoza.
The tour involves a 13 km ride through the vineyards.
