El Nudo was born in 2014 from the union of cousins Facundo Cahiza and Roberto Cahiza.
Facundo is a Sanmartiniano and winemaker received in Don Bosco, in Rodeo del Medio. He has been in the industry for more than 14 years, since he was 20. Those years of work gave him experience and knowledge, in addition to the academic he already brought with him.
In 2014 they began to think with their own cousin Roberto Cahiza about making something, a good wine, something of great quality.
Roberto Cahiza lived and worked in Hong Kong and proposed to contribute his contacts and experience there, while Facundo worked from Mendoza.
It was then when, in 2014, they bought grapes and made wine in a San Martín winery. Their goal was not to make money, but to do something well, and they did. With 1,000 bottles of Las Compuertas grapes, 100% Malbec, with 16 months in oak barrels and 8 months in bottles, El Nudo harvest 2014 was born. It was presented at the China Wine & Spirits Awards and it was a success. They won a gold medal and were rated as the best Argentine wine.
That immediately led to a chain buying the entire shipment and also the entire production for the following year.
There is a clear objective in the Cahiza cousins implicit in the name of the wine and on its label, which shows a rocking chair. It is the memory of the grandmother, of the origins of the Cahiza in Mendoza, of those industrious hands and of these, younger but heirs of that custom that are looking for quality, more than anything else, seeking to "do something good."
