High above the Maipu district of Mendoza lies Pascual Toso and its storied Las Barrancas vineyard. It was founded in 1890, making it one of the oldest wineries in Argentina, in one of its best wine producing regions. As a Piemontese immigrant, Pascual saw the potential of Mendoza as a world-class winemaking region, and the winery has always stayed faithful to its principles: Tradition. Authenticity. Innovation.
The surrounding Las Barrancas vineyard is characterized by 1,000 acres of stony soil that sits 2,500 feet above sea level. Pascual Toso’s terroir-driven profile produces wines of complexity and richness, including the Alta Malbec sourced from 60-year-old vines.
Paul Hobbs, a revered giant in the industry, who consults and makes wine for his own American labels as well as Argentine ones, is the consulting winemaker to Pascual Toso. His reputation coupled with his expertise in wine and in Argentina make him an ideal partner for the Pascual Toso label.
