Valle de la Puerta was established in 1994 and now has 150 hectares under vine plus 770 hectares with olive trees.
Located in the Famatina Valley approximately 754 miles North West from Buenos Aires by road, the property sits between the Famatina and Velasco mountain ranges, which branch off the Andes.
This unique valley offers a magnificent visual backdrop and provides well-drained topsoil. A special microclimate, with hot and dry summer days and cool nights, combines with the clean air and desert-like topography of the valley to ensure outstanding ripening conditions for grapes and olives. Rain is scarce with only 4 to 8 inches per year and for this reason we source water for irrigation from 200 meter wells.
The winery was built in 2002 and is one of the most modern and technologically advanced wineries of its type in Argentina.
La Puerta honours the Diaguita heritage and culture of its region by adopting some of their symbols to represent their wines. The puma in Diaguita culture is used in their logo and for the La Puerta labels, and it represents the supreme earthly being for its wisdom, strength and intelligence.
