When in the mid 1880s Pascual Toso set out towards Argentina from its home town, Canale D'Alba, in Piamonte, Italy, he could not have imagined that he would become the founder of a winery, which is today one of the oldest and most prestigious wineries in Argentina.
When he arrived in Argentina, he settled in Mendoza. As he had been closely involved in the development of his family wine business in Piedmont, he promptly saw the promising future for winemaking in the region and decided to use his expertise. Thus, in 1890, Pascual Toso established his first winery in San Jos, Guaymalln.
At the beginning of the 20th century, he decided to expand his business and acquired vineyards in Maipo. At his estate "Las Barrancas", he built another winery, "Las Barrancas" (small Canyon) which is dedicated to producing and growing the finest grapes.
TASTING NOTES: James Suckling 92 points- A very fine textured red with berries, chocolate and spices. Medium body, polished tannins and a savory finish. Long and caressing. A blend of malbec and cabernet sauvignon.
