We began our adventure in 2007 with the dream of creating a self-sufficient home in the countryside. Despite initial setbacks, such as a harsh winter that decimated our first fruit plantations, we adapted and pivoted toward breeding show jumping horses, with our first foal born in 2010.

In 2008, we began to explore the possibility of creating a vineyard. Despite initial warnings about the challenges of growing quality grapes in our region, we decided to persevere and, in 2011, planted our first vines. Over time, we have learned to handle adversity and work with climatic conditions to grow grapes that reflect the uniqueness of our terroir.

Today, we are proud to say that our efforts have borne fruit and that our dream of a self-sufficient home in the countryside has become a vibrant and lively reality.

Cultivation system: The vineyard supplies 100% of the grapes used to make San Juanito wines.
Elevation: The vineyard is located in the Bernal Valley at 1,930 meters above sea level. San Juanito has 30 hectares of land, of which 8 are currently planted with Malbec; Bernal ink; Syrah; Cabernet Sauvignon; Xarel-lo; Macabeu and Parellada
Soil: Superficial sedimentary coverage, clayey silty and silty sandy.
Climate: Although outside and far from the so-called wine belts, San Juanito’s proximity to the equator would suggest a tropical region, the altitude above sea level of the central plateau compensates for the latitude and gives San Juanito a semi-desert region with a good thermal differential between day and night.
Exposure: Geographically San Juanito is in one of the southernmost regions of the northern hemisphere where you can grow vines and have quality grapes that can make great wines.
