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.

As part of his annual wine report, the specialized journalist Tim Atkin, awarded our recent launch to the market, Proyecto Las Compuertas, with excellent scores. The Cordisco 2017 with 92 points and the Malbec Cinco Suelos 2016 with 94 points confirm that this path chosen by Héctor and Pablo Durigutti to express the potential of this origin will bring great satisfaction.

In its 16th edition, from January 26 to 27, Durigutti was present at the expected event of the season organized at the Conrad Hotel, “Salón del Vino Punta del Este”. With special high-end selections, wines from Carmela, HD, Project Las Compuertas and Reserva, Gran Reserva, Familia and Victoria integrated the table of these exclusive tastings in Uruguay.

November gave birth to new wines, presenting a work of exploration and soil work that was done years ago, from the origins of his winery. These studies, focused on this line Proyecto Las Compuertas, intend to deepen and discover all the nuances of the different profiles of this origin. The first four copies are released to the market, which stand out with a complementary look to the traditional style of the firm. Criolla Parral 2017, from a small neighbor and centenary vineyard in honor of the typical village wines; Cordisco 2017, curious variety as wine of the year in this experimentation process; Malbec 5 Soils 2016, result of the diverse expression of the same farm, with 5 profiles of soils where the grapes come from; and Malbec 1914 vintage 2015 which, as the name implies, refers to the value of vineyards with a truly ancient genetic root. Altogether, the result of all this is Proyecto Las Compuertas, the new line that returns to talk about a great work of interpreting the terroir by the Durigutti brothers.

During his time in Mendoza the singer Alejandro Lerner visited our winery. In the recital he made for the benefit of the Conin Foundation, grateful to discover the wines and the philosophy of work of this family, he said “I have come to Mendoza a long time ago, but today I had the enormous privilege of knowing a winery that, if there is someone that we must dedicate this song “Everything to Lung,” is to the Durigutti brothers.” As a classic Sunday for Argentines, we share the wines and a good barbecue with family and good friends.
