Fifth generation Bordeaux winemaker Francois Lurton first started making wines in South America in the 1990s, and in 1996 he and his brother purchased some 200 acres in a remote corner of Mendoza’s Uco Valley. At the time the valley was considered a barren desert-like region and some thought him a little crazy to start making wine here. Fast forward a few decades and the Uco Valley is now the source of many of Mendoza’s most famous bottles, including Francois’s very own Chacayes.
