Star winemaker Paul Hobbs helped Riglos founders Darío Werthein and Fabián Suffern create their dream Mendoza vineyard.
What You Need To Know
Prominent banker Dario Werthein and his colleague Fabian Suffern were friends for decades before they discovered that their grandparents had grown up in the same small Argentinean town of Riglos. In 2002, they teamed up with US winemaker Paul Hobbs (best known for his culty $250 Napa Cabernets) to plant grapes in Tupungato, some of Mendoza’s best wine terrain. Tupungato is located in the foothills of the Andes, where crystalline air and strong sunlight get grapes perfectly ripe. Crisp mountain nights helped give this Malbec its terrific balance. Fashioned by winemaker Juan Carlos Pulqui Rodriguez Villa, it’s rich and round, but not too ripe.
