La Posta invites you to Mendoza, the land of sun and wine, to gather at la posta del viñatero – the tavern of the grape grower. There you’ll meet the growers of some of the finest grapes in the world and hear stories before an invitation takes us back to one of their homes. In the kitchen, the stories will continue for hours. Laughter will fill the air. And you will leave richer than when you arrived.

Tasting Notes

This unique white blend is a sensory revelation. We wondered what it would be like to blend grapes from three high-elevation vineyards from across Argentina from three talented growers, and we were happily surprised. This baby is bright, fresh, and crisp with ripe white peach and floral notes in the nose. Honeydew rind, ripe apple and a hint of crisp lime explode on the palate,
quickly followed by a complex and balanced finish. For food partners, we’re still pondering what food this wouldn’t go with, but for sure it’s a wine to keep in the fridge for all occasions between Easter and Halloween.
