Corazon del sol crafts captivating Malbec and Grenache-based wines that capture the best of Argentina’s unique, high altitude terroir. Cultivated in the Uco Valley, which is situated in Mendoza on the eastern side of the Andes Mountains, our vines enjoy over 300 days of sunshine a year.
In 2008, Dr. Madaiah Revana went to Argentina seeking to add to his family of estate wineries which includes Revana Family Vineyard in Napa Valley and Alexana Winery in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Enthralled by the terroir of the Uco Valley, he was determined to find his next great estate here on the incredible alluvial soils of the Andes Mountains.
The 17 acres of estate vineyard are planted at the base of the Andes at an elevation of 3,000 feet. A visually stunning background, the Andes are also responsible for the incredibly deep, alluvial soils which define our estate vineyard. Made up of rock and sand which has eroded from the Andes Mountains over millennia, the soils are extremely deep and well drained, resulting in wines of great complexity, power and finesse.
The winemaker is the famed Santiago Achaval, founding partner and president of the iconic Achaval-Ferrer winery from 1998-2013. The 2017 Malbec is just what Argentinian Malbec should be. Fresh, deep fruits with crushed violets and spice demand another sip and then another.
