Don't be intimidated by its name; instead, savor the mystery and surprise your palate with this extraordinary find.

With a limited production of 466 cases, this Bequignol 2022 complements a variety of dishes, making it a versatile choice for culinary enthusiasts seeking a unique and delightful wine experience.

Bequignol is a grape variety that was once used as a blending component in red wines from Bordeaux, but is now found more commonly in the vineyards of Mendoza, Argentina. The variety is still not overly common in Argentina, but plantings far surpass those of France. While the variety is quite productive and performs well in dry conditions. They are light and best consumed young like this offering. 

This wine family, led by Luis Soria (winemaker) and Gonzalo Testa (Viticulturist), grew up in the vineyards and is sharing with us some amazing wines. On several occasions we have had the honor of sharing an asado (bbq) with these families and enjoyed their wines together. Not only are they one of the most likable families around, all of their wine is of excellent quality. It was very, very difficult to pick only four wines to import.

Winemaker Notes
Winemaker: Luis Soria. Born in Tunuyán, located in the prestigious wine-growing area of the Uco Valley in Argentina, he took his first steps as a plant operator in a local winery at just 18 years of age. It was there that he discovered his love for the land, grapes, and wines. This prompted him to pursue a formal education in the field, obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree in Enology and Viticulture at the prestigious Juan Agustín Maza University, Mendoza, Argentina. After completing his academic training, he began to forge his career in various renowned wineries and companies such as- The Vines of Mendoza, Corazon del Sol, and Michell Rolland Wines. Additionally, he expanded his horizon by working abroad, gaining valuable experience in the United States, specifically in Willamette Valley, Oregon, and Napa Valley, California. Luis, a quickly rising star in the Argentinian wine industry, decided to embark on his own path as an oenological advisor and founded, together with his partners, of three wineries in the Uco Valley that bear his distinctive seal: Chañar Lorenzo Estate Winery, Delator de Sueños Wines y Dharma Wines. These projects represent his vision for the creation of exceptional and unique wines, reflecting the diversity and quality that characterizes the region.
