Bodega del Desierto is a 345 acre estate owned by the sibling team of Armando and Maria Loson. Located in the La Pampa province of the Alto Valle Rio Colorado, Argentina, the wines were named in honor of the local town and in recognition of the 1810 revolution that led to Argentina’s independence from Spain. The strong Patagonian wind and arid desert conditions produce bold red wines and aromatic, delicate whites. Bodega del Desierto produces two tiers of wine Desierto 25 and the premium Desierto Pampa. At harvest, the grapes arrive at the winery within the hour to preserve freshness and acidity. Winemaker Sebastian Cavagnaro works hand in hand with vineyard manager Adrian Barrios and consulting winemaker Paul Hobbs.

Tasting notes
