More About La Posta
Growers sit at the heart of Argentina's winemaking culture. Estate fruit is far less common in Argentina, so even the most highly-regarded wineries rely on getting fruit from local growers. Laura Catena started La Posta, to pay homage to this growers, the backbone of the Mendoza wine industry. Each La Posta wine showcases Argentina’s best small-family growers and their individual passions with single-grower, single-vineyard wines. Each wine named after a grower family demonstrates the wide range of Malbec aroma and flavor profiles generated by distinct Mendoza appellations.
La Posta translates to “the tavern,” where the farmers meet to discuss their soils, their vines, their quest for superior flavors, and their passions for life. These wines are meant to express this passion.
