Region/Producer

100% from vineyards at 940 metres in Agrelo – Luján de Cuyo – Mendoza.

There’s something very special going on down a dusty track in one of the farther-flung out posts of Mendoza. A winemaker for years (‘for other people…’ as he puts it), Walter Bressia has spent decades quietly accruing relationships with growers and has emerged with an eclectic portfolio from six sites that, he believes, represents the very best of the region.

Walter Bressia and son Walter Jnr, are crafting their own very compelling expressions of the region and these are intensely personal wines. There’s a kind of secrecy to their source, you can visit the vineyards and they are indeed impressive, gnarly old things, beautifully tended, but there is alchemy back at the bodega. Walter’s fabulous finds have been spun into wines of depth and character. Production isn’t huge but the quality and personality of the wines are.
