Algodon Wine Estates Launches New “Ocho Fincas” Blend

We are all very excited about the launch of Algodon Wines’ new OCHO Fincas, which is a cuvée that has been hand-harvested from several original independent family farms that date as far back as 1946, and which today compose the basis for what is now Algodon Wine Estate’s 325 acres of productive vineyards. 

Algodon Wines’ OCHO Fincas is inspired by a heritage of craftsmanship and pays homage to the generations of winemakers that worked the land long before we arrived in San Rafael, Mendoza.  This wine not only honors the history of our estate, but also acknowledges the fine work and expertise of Algodon’s outstanding winemaker Mauro Nosenzo, and wine team members Jorge Arenas, Marcelo Pelleriti, and many others who have continued the legacy where our predecessors left off.  Algodon Wines’ OCHO Fincas will serve as our emissary as we introduce new markets, both domestically and internationally, to our extraordinary wines with the hopes of soon launching in the Chinese and U.S. markets. 

In the coming days we are also primed to introduce these markets to Algodon’s awarding-winning Bonarda wine, which we anticipate will also be a real crowd pleaser.
