Pulenta Estate

Lujan de Cuyo

Overview

Pulenta Estate is a handsome winery with minimalist architecture and well crafted wines whose excellence is proven by the level of demand. The owners, brothers Eduardo and Hugo Pulenta, come from a long line of winemakers, and their ancestors ran Argentina’s biggest winery, Peñaflor.

After selling Penaflor, they founded Pulenta Estate to focus creating the highest quality wines in Mendoza. The establishment has one of the most accomplished young winemakers in Mendoza, Javier Lo Forte, who focuses on continual experimentation with varietals, yeasts and fermentation methods. 

In addition to winemaking, the Pulentas are well known for collecting Porsches, providing visitors an interesting surprise with photos of their car collection displayed throughout the winery. 

Tours include an informative talk in the vineyards and of course a tasting of wines in the middle of their barrel room.

Wine to try: Their stunning Cabernet Franc, a great example of how this difficult-to-make varietal can excel in Argentina. It's like biting into a green pepper. Delicious!
