About the Winery:
Awed by the majestic landscape of Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza and its resemblance to their homeland Greece, Constantinos and Silvina Krontiras decided to acquire this plot of 80-year-old vineyard, now known as Bodegas Krontiras. Their project had since begun in 2004, with the aim of offering a distinguished natural expression of the Mendoza terroir.
In this pioneering project, the winery focuses in the production of natural wines through organic and biodynamic farming, letting nature do its work. Only wild and natural yeasts are used, with minimal intervention in their winemaking process. The resulting wines are of a style lesser-seen in Argentina, and a joy to behold on the dinner table.
