HERMANOS TORRONTES

HERMANOS TORRONTES Image

Grown in northern Argentina’s extreme region of Salta, Hermanos wines express the unique characteristics of the high desert with approachable flavors and unbeatable value. Hermanos vines are nourished by the ultra-pure water that percolates from the Andes mountains that tower above the vineyards. The consistent and extreme solar intensity above 6,000-feet altitude gives the wines intense aromas and soft tannins. The Domingo brothers, or “hermanos,” form a team of a second-generation winemaker (Rafael), a viticulturist (Osvaldo), and a businessman (Gabriel, who is also a goat cheese maker). Their family was instrumental in pioneering the Cafayate Valley of Salta, often having to build their own roads and gravity-fed reservoirs in order to grow vines in their ideal terroirs.

The vineyards are located in Valle de Cafayate (Salta), and the grapes are hand-harvested.
