Familia Otero Ramos
The project that Manuel Otero Ramos had nurtured for many years, was posed as one of seriousness and importance, strongly determined as a legacy he shows with great pride.
FAMILIA OTERO RAMOS is the result of many decades of effort, passion and hard work.
In a province where wine culture has been fostered by their ancestors, few succeed in accomplishing a vinicultural entrepreneurship. This is the story of Manuel Otero, who
carries viticulture in his veins and managed to stay connected to the land. A decade ago, he decided to make his dream come true and in the late 90’s he acquired a parcel of rich soil in Luján de Cuyo, first Vinicultural zone in Mendoza and cradle of Argentina's flagship varietal, Malbec. In this exceptional location, framed by the Andes at over 900m above sea level, Ramos planted Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat, Pinot Noir, Pettit Verdot, Chardonnay, Torrontés and Sauvignon Blanc. The vineyards are irrigated using only snowmelt water from the Andes, stored in the estates’ own reservoir.
The winery’s Spanish style is typical of the end of the 19th century. It has an underground wine cellar that stores wine in oak barrels and bottles, equipped with humidity and temperature control system. The family follows sustainable agriculture practices in the vineyards and is committed to environmentally friendly methods throughout the wine production process.
Today, “Don” Manuel continues with this project, together with his wife and children, in the hope of achieving the goal of leaving their imprint for future generations.
