Domaine Nico

Mendoza, Argentina

Description

Domaine Nico is the highest elevation Pinot Noir Vineyard in the world, with planting close to five thousand feet above sea level in Medoza Argentina. Domaine Nico single-parcel wines were inspired by Laura Catena’s travels to France as a teenager, where she first fell in love with the Pinot Noir from Burgundy. Convinced that similar terroir-based wines could be achieved in Mendoza, a team was assembled to study the flavors of Pinot Noir at high altitudes. The result was parcel-specific wines with intense floral aromas, delicate minerality and classic elegance comparable to those from the Old World.

To Laura, Pinot Noir wines have a feminine tour de force, so she thought it fitting to name the range after her daughter’s nickname, Nico, while also paying homage to her great-grandfather, Nicola Catena, founder of the family winery in 1902.
