The story of Pulenta dates back to 1902 when Angelo Polenta and his wife Palmina Spinssanti emigrated from Ancona in Italy to Argentina. Changing his name to Pulenta, Angelo bought his first plot of land in 1914 and built what would become a thriving family-owned business until 1997 when it was sold. In 2002, the 100 anniversary of the arrival of the family in Argentina, Angelo’s grandsons decided to found a new family winery to honour his memory and Pulenta Estate was born.

Today the winery is run by the third and fourth generations of the Pulenta family with 135 hectares of prime vineyards in the Alto Agrelo sub-region of Mendoza. The vines sit high altitude and are irrigated by melted snow from the Andes Mountains, producing perfect conditions for crafting intense and powerful red wines. Their Gran Malbec is made from an exceptional vineyard in Gualltaray which sits at 1300 metres above sea level and another in the Uco Valley at 1200 metres of altitude.

After the harvest the grapes are carefully sorted and selected by hand in the winery and then vinified in stainless steel tanks and oak barrels. The young wine is then matured for 18 months in new French oak barrels before bottling. This creates a deep, brooding style of Malbec with rich dark berry notes and ample tannins that will respond very well to another decade or so of cellaring.
