We met a woman with a passion for the local wine industry
úno 2012
We were in Mendoza for four days as part of an extended holiday in South America, and we asked at our accommodation for a wine tour. This was the first of the three very different wineries included in the tour. Just the two of us. We were welcomed graciously, shown around the winery – it's only small – and offered a small range of very pleasant wines to taste. Most importantly, we talked a lot and learned a great deal of how the growers and the wineries are working together for their mutual benefit in an organisation which this lady has helped set up.

Premium Fairtrade Winery a Winner
říj 2011
Partnered with one of the oldest wine producing families, the Furlottis, this place wins at two levels....superior wine with lots of structure AND a commitment in helping out the contratistas - a workforce unique to Argentina's vineyards. New to hosting wine tastings but not to making wine, this renovated bodega is Gabriella Furlotti's latest project and is a definite bright spot in the fairtrade industry. Marc Weiss, Operations Manager, was very knowledgeable and proud in showing off what the winery had to offer. Of particular note is their grand reserve, Soluna Primus Malbec, with hand-selected grapes from 80-year old wines and their Soluna Premium Organic Malbec. I am crossing my fingers this fairtrade concept will start a trend in Mendoza. Gabriella travels from finca to finca, negotiating with vegetable farmers to join her and collectively harvest grapes. "Our natural resources shouldn't benefit only foreign investors. I want to make sure the children of these farmers have a future on this land."
