Founded in 1902, Argentina’s Bodega Catena Zapata is known for its pioneering role in resurrecting Malbec wines, with the family’s Adrianna vineyard being named as the Grand Cru of South America.
Nicola Catena, an Italian immigrant, planted his first vineyard in Mendoza, Argentina, over 100 years ago. The winery has remained under the family’s helm — now in its fourth generation — and is one of the few family-owned wine companies in Argentina that remains in Argentine hands. Owned today by Nicolás Catena and his daughter, Bodega Catena Zapata is known for having introduced high-altitude Malbec to the world. Exquisite reds and crisp chardonnays encapsulate Catena’s passion for quality wines, keeping in line with its humble Argentinian beginnings.more
