"Small producers are the ones who can break the rules of what the market thinks it needs," says Onofri. “We do what we want, and that is the beauty, because there are consumers who are looking for wines that are different and that have personality and that express something different. Small producers have been able to show that we have the potential to make great wines with individual character ”.
Onofri practices sustainable agriculture and minimal intervention, making wines through micro-vinification and minimal oak wood, with an emphasis on rescuing old vines, historic regions and grape varieties. Varieties include Teróldego, Carignan and Monastrell, as well as Riesling, Fiano and Garnacha, Bonarda and Pedro Giménez. The latter is the second most planted white grape in Argentina (after Cereza), according to the INV, but it often ends up in the production of bulk wine. Onofri produces a 100% Pedro Giménez under the Alma Gemela label.
