** About the winery: **
Founded in 1897, Bodega Lagarde was acquired in 1969 by the Pescarmona family, which printed a stamp that would mark its identity as a family winery producing high-end wines, standing out both in Argentina and in the rest of the world. Between the eighties and nineties, the winery was dedicated to deepening its style and the quality of its wines. Bodega Lagarde was one of the first producers to cultivate the Viognier and Moscato Bianco varieties in Latin America, following its goal of always innovating. Today, the winery is led by young people Sofía and Lucila Pescarmona, representing the third generation of the family, continuing with the project to create unique wines, perfectly balancing the past and the future.
