Dominio del Plata is a family-owned and run project of Susana Balbo (Enologist) and Pedro Marchevsky (Viticulturist). The core philosophies that they share, and that figure prominently in the production of their wines, are the following: Precision Viticulture This is a grape-growing philosophy that demands attention to detail, however small. The planting of the vineyards, varietal selections, vineyard management systems, water management, canopy conduction, sanitary precautions and harvesting decision are all managed personally by Pedro and Susana in order to achieve the highest quality standards. Sustainable Agriculture The entire project is specially designed and implemented in a way that doesn’t harm the natural resources, preserves the environment, functions according to social requirements, and at the same time maintains productivity in order to remain economically competitive. Superior Winemaking Skills Our winemaking skills and professional knowledge have been developed over more than two decades through intensive and prolonged education and research. From this accumulated knowledge, we have designed and constructed a winery that employs state-of-the-art enological technology for the processing of grapes and therefore the production of high-quality wine. Love and Passion Knowledge and experience are not the only keys to successful winemaking. Every step of top-quality wine production demands a love and a passion for the winemaking process in order to obtain a successful result. The dedication and diligence of our entire family working in the vineyard, in the winery and for the marketing of the wines gives the company its unique character. The constant search for perfection and the appreciation for fine wine, as well as our relationships with the people that contribute to the success of the winery, is physically embodied in the beauty of the Dominio del Plata Winery.

A bit too alcoholic for my tastes. Strawberry flavors on the attack that are soon crushed by the bite.

Deep rose color, almost strawberry. Flinty nose with cherry and strawberry notes. Soft attack, cherries and some earthiness. Heavy tannins for a rose - nice sustained finish as a result. A bit of an alcohol imbalance. But nice for the price.

Not a bad drinker, but there are better-tasting roses in this price range, to be sure. Definitely pair this with food (preferably spicy!), otherwise, you will be bored with this wine.

Menos fragrante que o de 2004, mas com maior acidez e frescor

First rose I ever had. Paired with Indian food. A very nice balance between reds and whites.

Exotic and aromatic, rich, complex and deep, this wine shows a surprising side of Torrontés. Beautiful floral notes are accompanied by honeysuckle, citrus and apple aromas, and are followed up by great length and balance. This Torrontés goes perfectly with rich, saucy seafood dishes.

This rosé is deep cherry in color and made from the Malbec grape variety that's lately been thriving in Argentina's Mendoza region. Ripe, soft, and full of dark berry fruit on the palate - black cherries and red currants - this is very easy to drink. Susana Balbo and her husband have been making wine for over 25 years in Argentina and they've managed to produce a vast number of solid wines that are well worth a try.
