MAKIA as a visionary project aimed at the avant-garde sector of the international winemaking scene driven by the combination of Italian skill and expertise, developed along 80 years of winemaking activity, with the enormous potential provided by the Argentinean terroir.
Our target is to obtain the highest quality by using high density vineyards (8/10,000 plants per hectare), low yield production, manual harvest and the most innovative winemaking techniques.

MALBEC as a “local” variety has found in Argentina the ideal environment to enhance its characteristics, adapting perfectly to the terroir and becoming thus a symbol of this great country.
The unique Argentinean climate allows for the malbec to heighten its personality, structure and best features, and to obtain the longevity only great wines have.
MENDOZA, a zone with unique climate. The estate is located in Vista Flores, Valle de Uco, at approximately 1,150 a.s.l.
This is one of the best zones of Argentina, perhaps of the world, to produce high quality wines. Exceptional sunlight and thermal amplitudes of up to 20ºC guarantee optimum grape ripeness and great structure for the wines.
All of these factors significantly favour the development of aromatic complexity and intensity, which in turn, grant elegance to our wines.
