Our history

Our dream


We are a group of friends passionate about wine and Argentina and 12 years ago we acquired a beautiful land in the province of Mendoza, to develop an ambitious wine project: « Vignes des Andes ».

Many of us have worked all over the world, but it is at the bottom of the Andes that we chose to make our dream come true: to plant vines. Not only to produce our own wine… but also to receive our friends.
