for this region?

Lujan de Cuyo is a subregion of Mendoza, both part of the larger Cuyo wine region in Argentina. It is located south of Mendoza city, across the river of the same name. Most of the vineyards surround the river, providing natural irrigation for the alluvial (sand over clay) soil. This is considered the star region of Mendoza where many of the country’s top internationally selling wineries are located. It became Argentina’s first official appellation in 1993.

Malbec is the main grape grown, and has seen a steady increase in quality over the years, with investments in modern wine-making equipment and techniques to maximize its potential. Cabernet Sauvignon is also widely successful in blends and varietal releases. Torrontes is the main white grape, known for its perfumed aroma, fruity flavor and refreshing acidity. Chardonnay is also grown.

  • Carmelo Patti Red Blend Gran Assemblage 2002

    Snoothrank:

    I opened a bottle of the 2002 tonight. I didn't decant it but let it breathe for an hr or more. It's drinkable but I think it is rapidly going "over the hill". Maybe the other half of the bottle will have opened up by tomorrow night. Read More

  • Casarena Malbec 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Dense and complex in the mouth, inky purple in the glass. 14.7%. Dry. A powerful Malbec, seems a bit young still, but it still has plenty, deep plum and raisin with cedar/vanilla, mushroom earth, and chocolate/mocha. Just Luscious. I wish I had a cellar to lay a case of this down. Read More

    Wine review by LetUsTaste


  • In the heart of Mendoza wine country lies Luján de Cuyo, an area where the dry soil and the hot days and cool nights form ideal conditions to cultivate grapes. Old-vine vineyards produce the famed Argentinean Malbec grape from which Bodega Furlotti winemaker Pablo Durigutti crafts the Neu Direction wines. Neu Direction wines are made exclusivel...
