Malbec, Bonarda, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Tannat blend. In 1870, Santiago Graffigna had the foresight to discover the unique terroir of San Juan and understand the influence elevation would have in enhancing the quality of local red varietals. Graffigna has the honor of being the oldest winery in San Juan and the second-oldest winery in all of Argentina. The large plains and excellent soil make Argentina an ideal place for grape growing. Most of Graffigna's San Juan vineyards are located 2297-4,593 feet above sea level, on steep slopes that receive nourishment from an underground water supply. Because of its proximity to the Andes Mountains, the San Juan region has unique microclimates. San Juan enjoys a dry climate and an average of 310 days of sunshine per year, which means the grapes achieve optimal ripeness to produce softer tannins and exceptional concentration. With each region reflecting its individual terroir, the wines of Graffigna benefit from the microclimates within the contiguous valleys along the San Juan river. As the first to sell branded wine in Argentina, Graffigna now has a healthy export business to more than 20 countries worldwide.
