Visit the iconic, family-owned winery in Mendoza.
Located in the sub appellation of Agrelo, Catena Zapata have over 100 years of experience making wines of character that will age for generations to come. The winery is shaped as a Mayan pyramid in homage to the native dwellers that originally inhabited South America.
The winery was founded in 1902 by Italian immigrant Nicola Catena and was passed to his son Domingo. Domingo’s son, Nicolás Catena Zapata, was one of the first to introduce European winemaking techniques to Argentina and pioneered Malbec and vine growing in high altitudes. Currently, Laura Catena, her daughter, runs the winery and the revolutionary Catena Institute of Wine, which focuses on the study of terroir, sustainability and other research findings that will help further elevate Mendoza as a top quality wine region.
Today, the iconic Catena family winery produces wine from six estate vineyards. Special lots within the family’s high altitude vineyards, Angelica, La Piramide, Domingo, Adrianna, Angelica Sur and Nicasia, are the essence of the Catena wines.
Top scoring wines such as Argentina's first 98+ point wine with Robert Parker, have contributed to raising the profile of Argentine as a world-class wine producer.
Guests can enjoy tours of the winery and guided wine tastings accompanied by dry fruits, regional cheese and olives.
