Mauricio Lorca

Mauricio Lorca’s wines display an elegance and lightness of touch that we believe to be virtually unrivalled in South America. His winemaking talents have been much in demand for a number of years and he is consultant winemaker at several other wineries but, more recently, he has founded his own winery and it is here that he expresses his own vision. Elsewhere he is able to help wineries create a vinous statement that is entirely their own because of his ability to understand their particularities of grape and soil; here he is at liberty to explore the corridors of his own instincts and experiment at will, with very impressive results.

One area for which Mauricio is becoming well known and that is evidenced through his wines is the use (or not) of oak. All of the wines in his Opalo range are completely unoaked and they are simply, intuitively created as thoroughbred exponents of the grape variety in question. The Poetico wines, on the other hand, use oak of various types to varying degrees and the results are equally spectacular, just different!

“Mauricio Lorca - chief winemaker at Enrique Foster and formerly of Chilean-owned giant Finca La Celia, Catena, and Luigi Bosca - creates his own wines using grapes from his high-altitude vineyards in Vistaflores, Uco Valley. Young and highly talented, Lorca is one of the few Argentine winemakers who believes that the true fruit and terroir of a wine should be allowed to shine through.”
Jay Miller, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, December 2008

Testimonials

“Got my wine today, thanks very much for the great wine, quick email responses and friendly attitude. Very impressed overall and I hope to return and buy more from you in the future!”
Ollie, Hungerford


“Hi there, I just wanted to leave some feedback. After someone, who shall remain nameless, downed our bottle of La Poderosa (which we were saving for our anniversary), my fiance and I embarked on a mission to try and find the elusive 2006 reserve. No luck with anyone on the high street, not even the big wine warehouses. Then I came across your site. I couldn't believe my luck when I saw you had it in stock. The delivery was super quick and the bottle is now stored away safely until November the 18th. Thank you for a fabulous service!”
Stephanie, London


“Great quality and very good value – very pleased.”
Victoria, Hove

John, London


“I wasn’t quite sure which wines to buy so I gave them a call and picked their brains. Brilliant, friendly service all round, I can recommend it.”
Simon, East Sussex


“At last, a company that understands wine from Argentina, how good it is and why it should have its own special place online. Well done.”
David, East Kilbride


“It’s nice to find a company that’s as enthusiastic about wine as I am.”
Michelle, Shropshire


“I didn’t know there was so much choice available from Argentina. I’ll still buy wines from other countries but this is now my first port of call for Argentina.”
Gavin, Lancashire


“The wonders of the modern age.... Would you believe I am currently on a Delta airways flight using WiFi currently over Lake Erie flying from New York to Salt Lake City and I have just ordered a mixed case of wine from AWOL....!”
Paul, London
