Antucura means the ancient language of the Pehuenches -the first inhabitants of the area-, Stone of the Sun . This name was chosen for the winery and lodge at Vista Flores because the vineyards that give the birth to the beloved wines grow here naturally, among stones and rocks.

This Cabernet, Merlot, and Malbec blend from Antucura is well balanced and has beautiful blueberry and sweet tobacco aromatics, excellent structure, and a lingering finish. Very impressive at the price point.
