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.

Bright medium ruby. Spicy aromas of raspberry and blackberry with hints of coffee and game. Lush but also juicy and pure on the palate, with attractive balance and sweetness to its dark berry and violet flavors. This rather wild malbecs ripeness and supple texture are enlivened by very good balancing acidity. An excellent value. ** SOLD OUT **

Good full medium ruby. Crushed blackberry, licorice and violet on the lively nose. Quite ripe and sweet in the mouth, showing impressive volume and breadth for the price range. Finishes with serious ripe tannins and noteworthy persistence. Susanna Balbo's

Blended with 10% Bonarda; incense, spice box, underbrush, black cherry, savory, ripe, long.

Bright red-ruby. Rather brooding aromas of dark currant, licorice, violet, chocolate and brown spices gained in complexity as the wine opened in the glass. The attractively sweet palate is nicely supported by integrated acidity. A firmly structured, dry malbec with serious tannins.
