Both Andrea Marchiori and Luis Barraud come from families with long winemaking traditions in Argentina. They met each other while studying winemaking in Mendoza. They pursued advanced studies together at UC Davis before returning to Argentina.

After collaborating on a number of projects for other wineries, Luis and Andrea have finally
accomplished their shared dream of making their own wine. They work with Andrea’s family-owned Marchiori Vineyard, located in the Perdriel area, Lujan de Cuyo, in
Mendoza. Andrea personally manages the vineyard with exceptional care and close attention to detail. Together they make a small amount of wine in pursuit of expressing the best of the terroir for each varietal.
