About the Winery
Bodega Zuccardi is one of Argentina’s oldest, family-owned wineries, in business since Jose’s father, Don Alberto Zuccardi, a civil engineer by trade, planted vines in 1963 and pioneered an irrigation system dedicated to vineyards. Their vineyards are in the dry Mendoza region, an area which receives less than ten inches of rain annually. In his book “Wine Report 2004” by writer Tom Stevenson and a team of regional wine specialists, South American wine expert Michael Fielden ranked Familia Zuccardi in his Top Ten list of Greatest Wine Producers in Chile and Argentina.
