DiamAndes

In 2005 the Bonnie family, owners of Bordeaux Grand Cru Classé Château Malartic Lagravière, set off in search of new wine horizons. It began with the purchase of a single estate of 130 hectares in Vista Flores in Mendoza’s Uco Valley. The estate, known as Clos de Los Siete, was purchased by 5 separate business partners from Bordeaux (not 7 as the name would suggest) and it soon found fame with its eponymous wine, to which all of the wineries involved contribute their superb quality fruit. That project was spearheaded by Michel Rolland, one of the most famous ambassadors for Argentine wine. Today, however, Bodega DiamAndes is producing its own expression of this very special terroir. With all that ‘Old World’ heritage one could be forgiven for imagining that the wines have an innately French influence, but truly, these wines could not be from anywhere other than Mendoza, and more specifically this particular enclave of Vitsa Flores. Head winemaker Silvio Alberto (formerly of Andeluna Cellars) and his team are crafting some of the very best wines we have ever tasted – from anywhere! – and we are delighted to count these wines amongst the newest additions to our portfolio.
Visitors to this winery will not be dissapointed by the awe-inspiring combination of modern grandeur evidenced through the architecture, and the very simple, almost minimalist functionality of the place. There is an underground ‘crypt’, designed to house (eventually) thousands of archived bottles from ‘old’ vintages,  where sunlight pierces through the 3 stories above down to a focal point on the floor. It feels vaguely like hallowed ground – Raiders of the Lost Bottle – or perhaps it is just the ultimate venue for the best lock-in imaginable. Anyway, the wines are fantastic!

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
