Our Wines

Laborum Tannat

Single Vineyard Wines.

Laborum, “from our work”, is our emblematic line. It is our search for the genuine expression of Cafayate.

Laborum is the varietal expression of Cafayate.

It is the reflection of our work, our care in the vineyard and integration in the winery, which result in these single varietals with a genuine artisanal focus, and offer us the particular experience of wines that express all the character of their origin.

Laborum, our Cafayate footprint on the world.

Our varietal makeup showcases the best of the Cafayate terroir, and the line is made up of wines from very low yield (6 tons/hectare) vineyards.
