Santa Faustina

Santa Faustino is the partnership between Peter Weinert – whose family originated in Germany before coming to Argentina, via Brazil, and ranks amongst the earliest wine pioneers in the country – and his wife and internationally renowned winemaker, Graciela Reta. Graciela works essentially with two varietals from two distinctly different places. The Malbec is grown in Lunlunta, where somehow the soil imbues a beguiling minerality into the grapes and this comes through in the wine. The Syrah is grown on vines approaching 60 years old in Medrano, and there is a purity of fruit in these grapes that would be the envy of many a Rhône Valley vigneron – if s/he were ever inclined to taste it!

Santa Faustina wines are different from everything else in our portfolio in a way that is difficult to describe. They are ‘traditional’ and yet sumptuous; there is something distinctly Old World in their signature style, yet the winemaker is a modern artist at work in every sense.

You get a very tangible sense that these wines are going to be around for ever, future generations will enjoy future vintages ad infinitum. You want elegance? You want poise? Sophistication? Here it is.


“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

“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
