Hector and Pablo were born in Mendoza, the cradle of wine and were raised together. Their childhood and their home were always connected to a sensorial world, with aromas, ingredients and flavors that, over time, motivated them to choose the path to become enologists. As adults, they would find these familiar memories and similar passions. Since 2002 they have been dedicated to their project as a small family winey. Today the brothers have evolved to form the new generation of winemakers, leading an evolutionary change in Argentina’s viticulture. With that same spirit, the Durigutti brothers craft their wines and have started to write their own history, a family legacy, in a chosen place where they live and work daily with dedication.
The idea for family vineyard project begins in 2002. The Durigutti brothers made their first wine together under the name Durigutti Familia, a high-end emblem throughout the history of the winery. In 2007 The family acquires its first 5 hectares of vineyards in Las Compuertas, Luján de Cuyo. A year later wines are produced in an old recovered winery, a house they share with another company: Lamadrid Estate Wines, owned by Guillermo García Lamadrid. A land mark achievement in 2020 after many years of dedication, a great dream comes true, their inaugurate the first part of the boutique winery on their own farm and the tourism area opens.
