In November 2008, along with the celebrations of it 125th Anniversary, Trapiche opened the doors of its new winery, founded in 1912 and located in a ten-hectare estate, among vineyards and olive trees.

Quality, innovation and diversity have always been Trapiche’s fundamental drivers, the basis on which it stands and moves forward.
A MODEL WINERY
Inspired by the Italian Renaissance, its symmetrical shapes, monumental façade, slender design and overall practical purpose make this building one of the greatest examples of its style in Argentina. The facing brickwork shows the ability of the craftsmen who arrived from Northern Italy bringing all their knowledge and experience and who came to Mendoza brought by the railway.
The winery was sold by the founding family in 1970 and it was abandoned soon after that. Trapiche acquired it in 2006 aiming to rescue the spirit of its creation by restoring its original structure, recycling its interiors, and incorporating the latest technology and equipment for the production of its high-end wines.
A model project for its times, it stood out for its great production capacity, state-of-the-art technology, revolutionary design and facilities, the quality of its construction and its pursuit of the highest standards in viticulture and wine-making.
EXPERIMENTING WITH A NEW PHILOSOPHY
Bio-dynamics is the most extreme approach among biological and ecological agricultural practices. It supports everything that is natural and forbids the use of chemicals, herbicides and fungicides; it aims for a balanced ecosystem, biodiversity and the recovery of the bacterial activity in the soils. The only fertilizers allowed are the vegetable and animal wastes from a bio-dynamic farm.
It assumes that the moon cycles and the position of other planets influence the vines, as it happens with the tides. All the work in the vineyards is planned taking into account the different moon phases and the stellar dynamics.
The vineyards planted in front of the winery are managed under this philosophy, which is in line with our fundamental principle of “constant innovation and diversity” that leads to the permanent search for new techniques that surprise us with better wines year after year.
Argentina is the 8th largest country in the world covering 2,780,400 square kilometers, roughly the equivalent of one third of Europe’s territory. It is the second largest country in South America, second in size only to Brazil. There are 23 provinces in Argentina in addition to the capital city of Buenos Aires. Total population in Argentina is 39.9 million.
The major language spoken in Argentina is Spanish and the currency is the Peso. Major Argentinean exports include wine, cereals (soybean, wheat, maize), beef and fish.
Argentine culture has significant European influences. Buenos Aires, its cultural capital, is largely characterized by both the prevalence of people of European descent of European style architecture. The other big influence is the gauchos and their traditional country lifestyle of self-reliance. Finally, indigenous South American traditions (like yerba mate infusions) have been absorbed into the general cultural milieu.
