In 1997, the Claro Group from Chile decided to expand its wine business into Argentina to continue the group’s tradition of producing world-class wines. The conditions in Argentina’s Mendoza region contained the ideal and unique terroir which allow winemakers to fulfil their dreams of creating sophisticated and immaculately structured wines. The Claro Group’s first investment in the Argentine was to acquire the Ugarteche Estate. The estate encompassed approximately 140 hectares (346 acres) of old Malbec and Chardonnay vines, a requisite for producing a deep and balanced wine in the short term.

  • Doña Paula Malbec 2009


    Good value for the price. this is an easy drinking everyday wine. Malbecs are not usually my favorites but this actually worked well. Wine Enthusiast rated this an 85.

  • Doña Paula Cabernet Franc Tupungato 2007


    Just got a bottle from the local wine merchant. It came highly recommended after discussions around personal taste. I have to say it doesn't dissapoint. It has the same qualities as smooth bordeaux's but with a distinctive spice that is characteristic of most argentinian wines. Works well, goes great with cheeses. Enjoy! Read More

    Wine review by Waddy123

  • Just tried my first Malbec.  Trapiche Oak Cask 2008.  Was really good.  Carmenere, Malbec, Cabernet, Merlot, what's not to like in South America.  I'm not sure that South America isn't my favorite wine region.  Too much wine, not enough time. Read More
