About This Winery
Hector and Pablo Durigutti are the winemakers behind the Aguijón de Abeja wines, located in Patagonia. Their backgrounds are quite complementary: Hector started at Alto Las Hormigas at the age of 15 and has completed 25 projects at various well known wineries, learning old world techniques and agriculture. Pablo started at La Rural, a winery now owned by Catena, where he honed new world viticultural practices. The brothers started in 2002 with only 3000 bottles and production has grown steadily. Their grapes are organically grown and hand-harvested. Fermentation takes place with native yeasts, no winemaking additives are used and the wines are not fined or filtered. Sulfite levels are only 25-30 mg/L.
Smooth and refreshing by the glass, this Malbec pairs beautifully with almost any red meat, grilled or roasted.
