Finca La Anita is a boutique winery located in the heart of Agrelo, Mendoza in Argentina's most famous wine producing area. The property has 130 acres and is irrigated with water that comes from the snowmelt of the Andes Mountains. The wines produced here are 100% Estate grown and bottled. Both Tonada wines are fermented in stainless steel and then aged in new French and American oak for three months. The goal here is to maintain a very lively fruit on the nose and to not overpower the palate with oak. The average age of the vineyards is 30 years old assuring that the vines get all the nutrients needed from the soil.

Owner, Manuel Mas, started his winery in 1986. As Argentina's thriving wine industry is well known across international lines, Finca la Anita is characterized by its chateaux style of wine production, making wines only from the surrounding vines which you can explore in a horse drawn carriage.

With a 70 year old owner who is used to making only top wines, Finca la Anita has progressed as a world leader with the development of new and different wines each year. Every attention to detail is left without chance. From the impeccable vineyards to the pristine winery, there is nothing here that suggest anything but a commitment to the utmost of quality in wine.

Located in the Southern-most end of the America's and bordered by the Andes Mountains in the West and the Atlantic Ocean in the East, Argentina is a very special place. It is home to the cattle wrangling gaucho cowboy, wild Patagonia and cosmopolitan Buenos Aires. It has abundant natural resources, a centuries old wine making tradition and its wine industry has recently "awakened" from a slumber and is being recognized as one of the world's great wine regions.

Our selection is big and bold like the province of Australia but because of the pristine soil and climate here in Mendoza, almost anything works. The flavors here are a harmonious blend of black cherry and cocoa and can be complimented with grilled or roasted meats and imposing spices like rosemary, garlic and oregano.
