Durigutti Family Winemakers
is a project
to make the
wines we enjoy.
Our land provides
the essential components
and our challenge is to
interpret these to transform
them into wines of
excellent quality.

HÉCTOR DURIGUTTI

I trained myself enologically with the European school adding other modern practices to the orthodox traditions. For years I was in charge of several projects in Argentina and Italy, until in 2002 I decided to start my dream, to elaborate high quality wines with my brother Pablo. My vision is to achieve a range of soil expressions and microclimates in our wines.
