‘Domingo Molina’ is 8 km West of Cafayate, in Yacochuya, at 2,000 m above sea level. It lies on the Andean mountainside, where the Calchaquí Valley can be seen.
The winery was built following the latest viticultural trends, focusing on the making of the finest wines and respecting the architectural features of the place.
Clusters are hand-harvested in all the estates, and carefully selected before the destemming and crushing processes. After that, they are sent to low capacity, concrete or stainless steel tanks, where the fermentation and maceration processes are followed. Vines from different lots are treated accordingly, respecting their unique, independent features. Micro vinification processes are also carried out so as to take full advantage of the expressive potential in these grapes.
350,000 litres is the storage capacity in our winery, counting concrete and stainless steel tanks, plus oak barrels.
