Ernesto Catena trained in economics in the United States with a master's degree in design in Italy. Today Catena brings a new vision to the Argentine wine industry that fights for a place among the most outstanding in the world.
Ernesto Catena sees his mission as transforming viticulture into a true art. Growing up in a ruby world, in each bottle he makes, or rather creates, he puts his aesthetic gaze first. He defines himself as a hedonist, a passionate man and a lover of beauty. Perhaps that is why it is almost as complex for him to make a good wine as it is to design a good label.
His style, how could it be otherwise, is diversity, the constant search for the best grapes, wherever they are; then selecting different vineyards for different varieties, where the terroir and climate indicate that they would achieve their best expression, choosing small producers to collaborate with them and work together to obtain the best grapes and thus achieve wines with their own identity.
All this, and something more, encompasses this new Ernesto Catena Vineyards project, where once again, his viticultural identity and his love for the land of Mendoza are reflected in great wines. They are New World wines, lively and at the same time extravagant that have the hand of an author, tireless traveler and connoisseur of different vineyards in the world.
Ernesto, passionate and sensitive, has a philosophy of making ultra-premium quality wines. The winery undoubtedly has a very particular audience, which is in search of something different, innovative.
