Introducing you to Zuccardi
Today Bodega Zuccardi Valle de Uco is led by Sebastian Zuccardi. Following in the footsteps of his Grandfather, Alberto and his Father, Jose, Sebastian’s aim is to create wines of great purity, firmly rooted in the terroirs of the Uco Valley, in the shadow of the Andes Mountains. The family makes wines that express their origin, the essence of their soils and the extreme climate conditions of their vineyards in the heart of every glass.

“I no longer seek for the perfect wine, but for a wine that expresses its origin” Sebastian Zuccardi

Our Zuccardi Offers include:
Concreto, Paraje Altamira:

José Zuccardi, Uco Valley: Malbec from Paraje Altamira and Gualtallary is blended with a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon and aged in concrete and old oak foudres for 12 months to create this beautifully rich, ripe elegant wine.

Valles Torrontes, Salta: A brilliant example of this classic Argentinian grape variety.

Inspirational and Innovative, the Zuccardi family create wines with a sense of place which speak of the terroir, the Andes Mountains and the unique climate of the Uco Valley.

There’s a lot more to Argentina than just Malbec! High altitudes, where cooler temperatures preserve acidity, and varied soils enables different grape varieties to ripen more interesting flavours.That’s why Sebastian Zuccardi has shifted his focus away from Argentina’s “hit” grape and began to make wines that are often overlooked. Grape varieties include: Chardonnay, Viognier, Torrontes, Tempranillo, Cabernet Franc and Bonarda!
