Several geographical and climate elements define the unique terroir.Read More
The vineyards are cultivated at an altitude of more than 3.600 feet (one of the highest estates in Mendoza); the cooler temperatures allowing the vines to grown in an otherwise too hot climate. In a region that has a desert climate, they use melt water from the Andes Mountains carried by irrigation channels, through the alluvial soils. And have a vast temperature difference between day and night (16ºC) called a diurnal range.
All these elements allow for fruit ripening and concentration, come together, with the expertise and knowledge of expert winemakers, meaning the wines are consistently excellent quality. Gouguenheim wines develop great colors, aromas and flavours, with round tannins.
