Built in 1959, the traditional Mendocina winery was equipped with epoxy-lined concrete vats providing a holding capacity of 700,000 liters. Since the 2008 purchase of the winery, known as Bodega Maza, we have expanded capacity.
The facade of the original winery has been conserved; however the interior was renovated and equipped with advanced technology to ensure each procedure is processed with high quality. Concrete eggs, stainless steel tanks, fudres and oak barrels, collectively provide a capacity of 2 million liters. We are still expanding the winery to support growth, adding technology and providing better experiences for those whom visit us.
Double selection table, a rolling crusher, a vibrating selection table, heat exchangers and cooling equipment, hot water tanks, pneumatic press, low-pressure revolving pumps are just a few of the machines with which our enological team operates. Angelina, Natalia and Gabriel, under the leadership of Hector and Pablo Durigutti represent the professional operations team.
Our wines reflect a perfect balance between tradition and innovation, artesian selection of grapes, manual pump-overs, punch-downs, native yeasts, temperature controls, hot and cold soak maceration, hydraulic presses and steel tanks, where traditional techniques are accompanied with modern technology.
