In 1962, Don Silvestre Hinojosa planted 122 hectares in the Alto Valle de Uco (High Uco Valley). The winemaking tradition and spirit of Don Silvestre are still alive with the 3rd generation of the Hinojosa family. Today, Hinojosa shares the same goal of producing excellent wines inspired by the purest and most noble elements of nature.
The stony and sandy ground of Tunyan, Mendoza, allows excellent drainage of underground water coming from ice melting off the Andes Mountains. Hinojosa's wines are born at the foothills of the Andes, almost 4,000ft above sea level, where a large temperature amplitude between day and night create the perfect environment for slow grape ripening.
