Trapiche

Since its early days, in 1883, Bodega Trapiche has received worldwide recognition for its relentless quest for innovation. Our full understanding of the land as our most valuable asset, combined with state-of-the-art technology to venture into otherwise unchartered territory, have turned Trapiche into a winery that is constantly challenging what is allegedly known.

The winery pioneered innovations such as the introduction of French varieties, the use of French oak barrels and the production of micro-terroir wines. Its inquiring spirit has led the winery to find unique, remote locations where to grow grapes. This holds true not only for Mendoza, brimming with areas of excellent winemaking potential, but also for Chapadmalal, a place that realized Trapiche's pioneer spirit in the first wines of oceanic influence.

The relentless determination to achieve the highest standards in the world of winemaking has resulted in Trapiche's worldwide recognition on countless opportunities
