Second generation winemaker Carlos Pulenta is often considered to be Argentina’s answer to Robert Parker. He founded Bodega Vistalba in 2003 as his own personal project, based on the Bordeaux chateau model of making complex red blends which age beautifully. The winery is located in Mendoza’s Lujan de Cuyo sub-region, and is the only producer permitted to use the Vistalba appellation on its bottles.

The winery itself is built in a distinctive “criollo” style inspired by native Argentinian architecture with a clever design that uses gravity to move the grapes and wine through every stage of the winemaking process.
