Primeras Viñas

Lagarde is pleased to introduce Primeras Vinas a collection of two red wines, each of which is the result of the work and time invested in a special vineyard, their age and treatment. Their production takes between 12 and 14 months in French oak barrels, with at least 12 months of stowage in a controlled environment, resulting in great potential that can be enjoyed for 10-15 years. Only 4,000-15,000 bottles are produced annually.

Primeras Viñas Malbec: Is our malbec red wine made with grapes from our centennial vineyards, planted in 1906 and 1930.

Primeras Viñas Cabernet Sauvignon: Is our red wine made from carefully selected grapes of cabernet sauvignon from a few extraordinary blocks within our vineyard carefully chosen using precise viticulture techniques, that offer the truest, most distinctive expression of the varietal.
