Project Description

Rutini Wines

Named by Tim Atkin MW as Argentina’s Winemaking Legend of 2018, Mariano di Paola has elevated Rutini Wines to being one of Argentina’s most prestigious wineries.

Founded in 1885 by Felipe Rutini, Rutini Wines has been one of the pioneers of the Argentinean wine industry ever since. In 1925, Rutini Wines became the first winery to plant vineyards in the now world renowned wine region of Tupungato, Uco Valley.

Following many years production at the old winery in Maipú, in 2008, Rutini Wines built one of the most technologically advanced wineries in the Uco Valley, eighty years after having planted the first vines in the region. This new winery was designed by Rutini Wines’ head winemaker, Mariano di Paula who, by his own admission, is obsessed with quality as well as innovation. As a result, this new winery boasts some of the most innovative vinification equipment available: two optical grape selectors, over 10 different fermentation tank sizes including conical tanks (designed by Mariano), and a high specification, climate-controlled barrel room consisting of over 3,000 barrels – 90% French and 10% American.

Rutini Wines’ winemaker for 30 years, Mariano is one of Argentina’s most highly awarded winemakers, and was named by his winemaking peers, in Decanter magazine, as one of the top 30 winemakers in the world. Separately, Mariano was named by Tim Atkin MW as Argentina’s Winemaking Legend, calling him “one of the most experienced and knowledgeable winemakers in Argentina. I have enormous respect for what he has achieved at Rutini. Rutini is today one of the main wineries to discover the advance of the Argentinean wine industry”.

Rutini Wines owns and manages a total of 305 hectares of vineyards, planted strategically across varying sub-regions and altitudes of Mendoza: 150 hectares in Tupungato, 1,235m above sea level; 70 hectares in Altamira, 1,100m above sea level; 30 hectares in La Consulta, 970m above sea level and 7 hectares in Maipu, 752m above sea level. With each of these exceptional sites, the vineyard management teams are committed to achieving the most premium quality fruit possible by keeping yields low, pruning and harvesting by hand, whilst also paying meticulous attention to every vine and bunch in order for the grapes to reach their optimum maturity level before being harvested.
