November 2009, springtime in Mendoza, sampling the 2007 Riglos wines for the first time in Gualtallary… tasting the wines as they were intended, with aromas from the best Argentine asado filling the fresh mountain air as we sat and ate, chatted, savoured, and we were all agreed; let’s do it, let’s take these wines back to the UK.

Riglos wines, from a beautiful wine estate called Finca Las Divas in the upcoming Gualtallary sub-district of Tupungato, is a fairly new venture. It is a collaboration spearheaded by friends and business partners Dario Werthein and Fabian Suffern, with a real scoop of talent on the wine front: oenologist Pulqui Rodriguez, Agronomist Hernán Cortegoso, and one Paul Hobbs as winemaker-consultant. Not a bad start!

Most of the vines are still under 10 years old, a fact that beggars belief when you taste these magnificent specimens. There is a beguiling combination of intense fruit concentration and an under-stated quality that is impossible to ignore. The wines are gaining recognition quickly and we are confident that they will take their rightful place amongst Argentina’s finest for a very long time to come.

Lastly, we felt that we should share with you a few snippets from the highly entertaining, bizarrely poetic ‘tasting notes’ that have poured forth from the inimitable Pulqui Rodriguez, winemaker. We’re not quite sure what to make of all this; but it’s good fun. Pulqui’s notes might not be entirely serious but these wines certainly are.



“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
