Estate: Sol de Mayo translates as the "Sun of God" and is a representation of the Inca sun god "Inti", one of the national emblems of Argentina. The symbol can be traced back to the Argentine Revolution of May 1810 when, as the Spanish were overthrown the sun broke through the clouds. Our Sol de Mayo range are sourced from Mendoza, the winery has over 200 hectares of vines, some dating back more than 60 years. Due to the high altitude and low humidity in this region these vineyards require the use of little or no pesticides. The wines are designed to be easy-drinking, yet still retain their true varietal typicity.
