  • About this winery

    At heart, Catena is a story about family. Family who poured their lives, passion and spirit into transforming scrub-laden desert into some of the most beautiful and unique vineyards in the world. Family that passed their knowledge from generation to generation, blending collective memory with state-of-the-art science from the new world of viticulture.

    May 2018

    This is a big blend by anyone’s standards at 480,000 bottles, made with admirable
    consistency from a combination of vineyards in Luján and the Uco Valley. Rich, smooth and concentrated, it has layers of cassis and herbal fruit and textured tannins.

    June 2018

    The 2016 Catena Cabernet Sauvignon blends grapes from different terroirs of Mendoza and contains some 7% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, but it's still legally a varietal red. It matured in French and American oak barrels for one year before bottling. The varietal aromas soar from the glass, with a traditional Bordeaux profile. It was harvested early, before March 15th, and it shows in the freshness. These Catena varietals really excel in 2016.
