As opposed to the large industrial scale wineries, we remain committed to our consumers and community to employ as many men and women as possible, generally around 25 people. Picking grapes is hot, backbreaking work and we are thankful that our neighbors want to help. We pay a more than fair local wage for their hard work, transportation to and from the vines if needed, provide on site child care for the families with small children, and all of us together to celebrate the end of the harvest with a huge asado meal and party.
Our earths resources are being challenged like never before. At Finca Bella Luna we are committed to meeting these challenges head on both at our vineyard and in the Barrancas community. Responsible irrigation, organic composting and recycling of plant waste, minimal mechanization and employ locally are essential elements to this effort.
At the southern tip of Maipu, across the Rio Mendoza, lies the small area of Barrancas, an old and fertile river valley with rich alluvial deposits from the Andes. Some of the oldest and most respected names in Argentine wine are our neighbors. Toso, Flichman, Agostino, Domiciano, Gauchezco to name a few.
The beloved combination of altitude (760 mtrs/ 2,490 ft) abundant sunshine (well over 300 days per year), water and perfect loamy, excellent porous soil allows us to grow some of the very best malbec grapes anywhere in the world.
Bella Luna's root stock is from the old and venerable Toso vines, growing and producing superior malbec grapes. With close consulting with our famous neighbors, we are meticulous in our pruning, watering and fertilizing programs which generates excellent yields and quality.
We are a flexible operation that cater's to our clients specific needs. If all you need is bulk malbec wine FOB Mendoza with no further assistance, we are here for you.
If you ask us to provide logistical support to get your wine to its destination, we exclusively have partnered with JF Hillebrand in Mendoza using their VinBulk flexitank system.
