Espíritu de Argentina

What is it they say? “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” Like all clichés this one is borne out of consistency and truth. Getting to the point, we’d looked long and hard for a really good quality, smartly and creatively packaged range of wines to underpin our portfolio at the so-called ‘value end’. Finally, through an old friend – Silvio Leguia, now General Manager at Espíritu de Argentina – we have found that very thing. All things being relative, this is our new ‘entry level’ range. The wines are not exactly ‘cheap’ because, let’s face it, Argentina doesn’t really do cheap, but these wines we firmly believe are as good as any that you will taste at the price. All are single varietals with plenty of varietal character, bursting with ripe, clean, up-front fruit and proper structure. We’re starting with 4 reds but you may well see more wines in future; the reserve wines are none-too shabby either, so watch this space.
Espíritu de Argentina is a joint venture between Chilean producer Aresti, which owns the Espíritu brand, and Finca Agostino where the wines are made. Fruit is sourced mainly from the Maipú district of Mendoza from a combination of Agostino’s own vineyards and a number of independent growers whose total production is bought each year. The winery is located in Barrancas with crush capacity of around 3.5m litres; a fairly large, modern facility that is well suited to making good, clean, fruit-driven wines in the lower price spectrum. Head winemaker: José Pedro Gómez.

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

“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.”

“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.”
