The terroir is a limited space where the physical and chemical conditions of the soil, the geographic situation, and the weather make obtaining specific distinguished products possible. They’re affected by variables such as altitude, plant orientation, slopes, rainfall distribution, and hours of sunlight, among others.

When combined with the knowledge and intervention of our oenology team, these characteristics allow us to develop unique world-class wines.

Bodegas Bianchi is on a quest in line with the global tendency to find the unique inimitable aspects of each of our farms seeking to interpret the grapevines’ intentions and bring variety and excellence to the market with each of our wines.

San Rafael

Our vineyards, located in San Rafael, receive the pure waters of the Rio Diamante (Diamante River) and the breezes of a continental climate which establishes –with ample variations in temperatures between day and night– the exact pace for the best fruits to ripen.

Altitude above sea level varies between 600 and 800 meters with clay and sandy soils formed by alluvial sediments rich in calcium and organic material. All of these variables are quintessential to exceptional vine production. Aside from these factors, there’s also abundant snow on the mountainside which later accounts for a greater flow of water for irrigation.

With an average rainfall of 190 mm from October to March, the weather is dry and the average temperature is mild, only 14.8°C. In those conditions and taking every necessary provision for their care, the best wines of pure San Rafael identity are produced.

Uco Valley

Our vineyards grow at an altitude of over 1,000 meters where they find all the benefits of the sun and Andean waters. Our farm is on the former bed of a channel –today dry— which has become rocky sandy loam soil comprised of alluvial formations. Thus, plants are required to make an extra effort to root before they can go into production.

The soil’s stringency allows us to regulate plants’ robustness without having to subject them to the stress that reducing water supply or cutting branches implies. At the same time, all varieties have been planted considering the various altitudes and soil characteristics and are placed in the vineyard mirroring each other which contributes to a better agronomic management.
