Salentein

Uco Valley

Overview

Located in the heart of the Uco Valley, Salentein is one of the most historical and yet modern wineries in Mendoza. It has one of Argentina’s largest scale productions, yielding millions of bottles annually, that are sold and consumed around the globe.

Salentein aims to make the best Argentine wines using the best of Old World and New World winemaking styles --all while maintaining respect for the people and terroir. When walking through the winery, you will notice it is designed in the shape of a cross. This design of Salentein's entire property is meant to be both spiritual and practical, intriguing the visitors while moving wine production along. 

When entering the underground cellar, people almost get lost among the 5,000 oak barrels. But the alignment of all is strategic to accomodate for fabulous concerts that Salentein hosts in the cellar itself. 

Wines to Try: Be sure to try their Primus Pinot Noir, well known as one of the Uco Valley’s best.
