Gouguenheim

Patricio Gouguenheim escaped from the high-flying world of business to follow his passion of winemaking. Organisation and an eye for detail helped him make wine which is balanced and crowd pleasing. Great Pinot which really benefits from the huge difference in night and day temperatures while growing.

High and Dry

Patricio Gouguenheim’s winery sits high in the Uco Valley with the Andes Mountains looming in the distance, like some improbable backdrop to a film set. It is one of the highest wineries in the Mendoza wine region and the vines thrive on the melt water flowing down the mountains in what is an otherwise dry dessert climate.

 

The French Connection

Born to French parents who had moved to Buenos Aires, Patricio’s love affair with wine began at just 7 years of age when, in that French way, he was given red wine mixed with sparkling water at meal times. Years later, after the Argentine economic crash in 2002, he would quit his job as a businessman in Buenos Aires to take over a pretty but neglected winery on the slopes of the Uco Valley.

 

Wine Fit For a Pope

Today Patricio oversees what has become one of the top wineries in Argentina. His Malbec in particular is astonishingly good and has been amongst our bestsellers for some time now. Indeed Patricio had the honour of presenting his wines to his compatriot Pope Francis who chose them to be served at his first Christmas Dinner for the homeless.

 

"A brilliant mix showing rich flavours yet great drinkability, with dark fruits, mocha notes and a refreshing finish." Martin Moran on Gouguenheim Malbec, The Sunday Times

Gouguenheim Winery

Seventy kilometers from the city of Mendoza, in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, lays one of the best kept secrets in the Uco Valley, called GOUGUENHEIM WINERY. Several geographical and climate elements define our unique terroir. Our vineyards are cultivated at an altitude of more than 3.600 feet (one of the highest estates in Mendoza). In a region that has a desert climate, we use melt water from the Andes Mountains carried by irrigation channels, through the alluvial soils. And we have a vast temperature difference between day and night (16 º C).
