Gouguenheim Winery

Gouguenheim Winery

Patricio Gouguenheim was born in Argentina to French parents. During 2002 in the midst of an economic slump in Argentina, Patricio decided the time was right to leave his job as a banker in the city of Mendoza and start up a winery. He found an old winery in the Uco Valley around 70 km from Mendoza in the heart of the wine producing region.

It had nearly 100 acres of vineyards situated high up in the foot hills of the Andes at 3600 ft above sea level. The region has a desert climate with over 320 day on sunshine a year, but they use melt water from the Andes to irrigate the vines. The soils are alluvial and there is a big contrast of up to 16⁰C between night and daytime temperatures, perfect for making interesting wines. Today Patricio has handed the reins to his son Gonzalo.
