Chakana 5 years ago

The Pelizzatti family founded Chakana in May 2002 reviving an old family legacy. At the turn of the XIX century, the Pelizzatti ancestors made wine from the terraced vineyards of Valtellina, Italy.

Chakana is a winery dedicated to the study and understanding of some of the best terroirs of Mendoza, Argentina. Its goal is to produce authentic wines to express the character and identity of the Andean soils.

The winery is located in Agrelo in the province of Mendoza amongst 80 ha of vineyards. It also manages its own vineyards located in other areas of Mendoza, such as Mayor Drummond (Lujan de Cuyo), Altamira and Gualtallari (Uco Valley).

In 2012 Chakana started a conversion process to recover and maintain the harmony of its soils by transforming its agricultural methods to organic/biodynamic.

Chakana’s viticultural management is now oriented towards developing balanced vines through the structuring of its soils and the preservation of their organisms with methods compatible with their texture, organic matter and susceptibility to frost.

Chakana’s Nuna Estate located in Agrelo has been certified organic from vintage 2014 onwards and is certified Demeter (biodynamic) since 2016. The Los Cedros vineyard in Altamira is organic certified. All the other vineyards are in conversion to organic and biodynamic preparations are being used consistently.

Chakana is the only Argentinian winery GMO-free certified by the Non-GMO Project.

Site completed and launched in 2017.

Weinert Wine Cellar and Winery was founded on 1975 in Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina, by brazilian Don Bernardo Weinert, who have always had the same philosophy o making high-class wines.

Before embarking on his journey, he thoroughly studied everything he could about Mendoza: climate, terroir and grapevine; and he found that Luján de Cuyo was the ideal place for his venture. On 1974, he repaired the original and classic building of the winery, a task that was really hard, and once it was ready, he brought ultimate technology to the country. He partenered with Raúl de la Mota, which is known by the father of the modern viticulture and also considered as the best oenologist of Argentina in the 20th century.

In 1996, oenologist Hubert Weber joined Weinert at the young age of 27, and who currently remains as the main oenologist in the winery.

Each bottle carries with it the values of quality, elegance and natural argentinian features, the same that can be found in Polo, where Argentina is one of the best teams in the whole world.
