Trivento acquires emblematic winery in Luján de Cuyo
The Argentine subsidiary of Viña Concha y Toro consolidates its premium position after acquiring a new production winery in Drummond, located in the prestigious Luján de Cuyo region of Mendoza.
The Argentinian winery Trivento expands and acquires a winery in the Drummond district in the prestigious Luján de Cuyo region, where it will strengthen the operations of Trivento Reserve, Trivento Golden Reserve and Eolo lines to support its development in Europe, America and Asia.
‘In recent years we have achieved strong growth in the world’s most important markets. By acquiring this winery, we centralise the operations and physically expand the production capacity to support and be sustainable over time. We will invest over $11 million for the 2021/22 period for the purchase and conditioning of the installations with the quality standards we have in our winery,’ says Marcos Jofré, CEO of Trivento.
Winery and manor house
The property has a wine cellar, a manor house with a three hectare park and a 17 hectares estate in Mayor Drummond, in the heart of Luján de Cuyo. This area was the destiny of many European immigrants who came to Mendoza to develop the wine culture in the early XIX century.
The California-style manor house was built in 1940 by architects Mario Giambelli and Luis Mario Brisighelli, who also participated in the decoration and furniture. The winery has two subfloors and a storage capacity of 18 million litres. Today it’s being restored which includes in a first stage to reestablish the working capacity for reception and production at the winery. This is being followed in stages by restoration of the manor house. The project is being led by architect Claudia Helm and agricultural engineer Juliana Vespa. At present, the facade facing San Martin Lane has been restored, with basic services and installation of an aspersion irrigation system underway.
‘In Trivento we have a close relationship with Mendoza culture that we consolidate with the opening of our Art Space. To put in value this historic house is part of our commitment to SDG 11 Sustainable Cities and Communities, and the care of our Mendoza’s cultural heritage,’ adds Marcos Jofré.
