Luca is a winery founded by Laura Catena (of the prestigious Argentinian winemaking family), named for her son, in Mendoza, Argentina. The focus is on small batch, artisanal quality wines that showcase the individual terroirs of Mendoza, produced at a state-of-the-art facility. Luis Reginato is principal winemaker. Luca produces Chardonnay, Syrah, Pinot Noir, Malbec and the Beso de Dante Malbec/Cabernet Sauvignon blend.

    Forum post in the topic Pinot Noir anyone?


  • Snooth has two different wineries listed: Luca and Da Luca. I don't have a bottle at hand to try to settle the dispute. Does anyone know which is correct? Luca or Da Luca?
