"The Recuerdo Wines label is a tribute to the weeping willow trees on The Vines of Mendoza property, where our ideas propelled us on a journey and partnership with the Napa Valley."
The story begins in Mendoza, Argentina, in a rock-strewn vineyard encircled by majestic weeping willow trees. With a perfect view of the Andes Mountains, we frequently gather here to delight in a mid-day or evening asado. After a long meal in the vineyard, accompanied by plenty of wine (and good conversation, of course), we started to discuss a "Northern Hemisphere meets Southern Hemisphere" winemaking partnership. After a visit to The Vines of Mendoza by Paul Leary, a Private Vineyard Estate Owner and principal at Blackbird Vineyards in Napa Valley, Recuerdo Wines was born.
