Eight generations of wine originating in Spain and on to Argentina. Perlas del Desierto. Pearl of the Desert founded and created by Don Julio Stabio
Developed over the past 400 years, Mendoza's wine industry is combines tradition, natural resources, passion and entrepreneurship. The tradition was brought by Spanish settlers who harnessed an amazing set of natural resources that had long been established reaching back to the days of the local pre-Columbian Huarpe population. As the years progressed, the devotion and entrepreneurial spirit introduced by successive waves of immigrants have made this patch of land their home since the second half of the 19th century.
Our partners embody the same hard work, passion and ingenuity characteristic of our family who settled in the Primera Zona in the 1700's and the European immigrants at the end of the 19th and early 20th centuries. We have all been unlocking the potential of the terroir; turning sun, sand and water into bottled magic.
For over eight generations, a tradition of wine making and marketing has prospered. The latest episode in the 300 year journey adds American blood and entrepreneurship to a long story of hard work, innovation and love. Love for the land; Love for the people; Love for one of humanity's oldest traditions - turning fruit into a spirit we drink to celebrate victories, cherish with family and friends and just enjoy!
