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.

Performance was a main challenge, because the catalog consist of 100.000+ products and prices per customer groups was as high as 1M. We designed the flow to import product data on a daily basis, with information coming from a centralized and customized app that serves as a bridge with ERP.
Women with urinary incontinence usually only have a minimum of pesky sanitary pads to choose from. This young startup from Antwerp offers a comfortable alternative: sexy undergarments, equipped with special three-layered absorbing technology. Hans Versmissen, founder of Entusia, discovered the product in Canada and decided to sell the undergarments in Belgium through a webshop. Accompanied by nothing more than an idea and a name, he came knocking on our doors. We answered.
Baldwin supported Entusia in every phase of the project:
Company logo & Corporate Identity
The logo was designed by the Baldwin design team. Out of a number of options, Entusia decided to go with the logo that represented their unique three-layered technology. To accompany the logo, a fitting corporate identity for web and print was developed as well.
Baldwin didn’t limit itself to just the development and design of the webshop. We supported Entusia throughout other aspects of the project, such as selecting a hosting partner, payment provider and photographer.
Design and Development
This project wasn’t just a challenge for founder Hans, but for Baldwin as well. The development team constructed the shop in Magento 2 for the very first time. This is the latest version of Magento, which was launched in the final quarter of last year.
In order to promote their product towards women with urinary incontinence, Entusia will be contacting several doctors and urologists in the upcoming months. For this, Baldwin designed a booklet, business cards and custom packaging with the printed logo.

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.

La Chamiza Ranch (“Finca La Chamiza”) is a wineyard that was originally bought to raise horses for Polo, a classic and exclusive sport where Argentina has top players in the world. Due to the excellent features found in this terroir, the place eventually became a wineyard.
However, in 2003, it starts a new wine-making project with the solely goal of achieving the excellence in the range of high-class wine. 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.
Since 2011, Martín Morales leads this initiative with the greatest passion an dedication.
