The Stella Crinita winery was born from Ernesto and Joanna's love for natural wines that speak to the soul and heart. After starting to cultivate biodynamically in 2002, when especially in Argentina this was seen as little more than witchcraft, they have decided to free their wines from each and every one of the restrictions and take them to their maximum expression by jumping to a complete natural winemaking, with the launch of the 2017 vintage.
The winery is symbolized as a comet on our farm and is part of the universe that we create in our vineyard. A biodynamic plantation is an entity that functions within itself and with absolutely no need or desire for anything artificial, as all soil and plant treatments are based on natural remedies.
Making natural wine is the ultimate expression of our ideology and of what we believe in, and we are proud to begin a new chapter in our wine world with all of Stella Crinita's natural wines. Our wines are rooted in creative vision, hard work and a love for nature and humanity. Our vineyard, located at an altitude of 1100m, in the Uco Valley, is a magical place. Surrounded by trees, the vines live in symbiosis with sheep, horses, donkeys, cows, chickens and us. Its clay soils with deep buried stones are blessed by the cold, pristine water that comes every summer from the snow-capped Andes Mountains. We believe in treating the land, the vines, and our community with respect and care.
