Gen del Alma
Gen del Alma began in 2011 when five wine loving friends planted a seven hectare vineyard in Gualtallary at 1400 meters above sea level on alluvial soil composed of calcium carbonate and granite. The group began making wine in a small winery built in 1952 in the town of Tupungato where they work with concrete vats, eggs, and amphora made from local sand and stone.
The wines are made by Belen Sanchez and the vineyard is farmed by Matias Prieto. Gen del Alma currently import two different cuvées. One is an unfiltered Chenin Blanc from Villa Seca, Tunuyan. The other is a carbonic maceration blend of Pinot Noir and Malbec that comes from the estate vineyard in Gualtallary. These two wines are fun, bright and fresh and show a lighter style of Argentina that they are fond of.
