Italian Nicola Catena founded this business in 1902 and it is still in her family today. It  is now a state-of-the art winery located in Vista Flores, Mendoza, Argentina. Felipe Stahlschmidt is the chief winemaker. Grapes are grown in the high altitude slopes of Mendoza and hand-selected for quality, ensuring only the best grapes are used. They are then vinified using precise details which preserve their inherent flavors and aromas. All of this contributes to a high quality, value-driven wine.

Big bold Malbec, with lots of cherry and smoke. Very dark purple color. Excellent value.

Catena seems to always put put quality Malbec. While this is no Bodegas it is finely balanced and a great value.

Mendoza wines were hits for us in summer 2008. Full bodied, fruit forward, tannin on the backside.

Not a very complex Malbec, but it definitely has all of the features that define the varietal. Very well balanced in terms of sweet/dry and fruity/spicy. Sweet, smooth tannins. Reflects its price well.
