The goal of Salentein is to make high quality Argentine wines, while respecting and supporting the people, nature and community from which the wines are created. The company’s lasting commitment to the people of Argentina combines investments, employment opportunities, and training with lessons of hope. Salentein faces national challenges with vitality and a long-term global perspective
Salentein lies in the province of Mendoza, the most important winegrowing region of Argentina, with some 150.000 vineyard hectares (370.500 acres) and more than 900 wineries.
Salentein is a leader in cultivating global awareness of the emerging premium wineries of Argentina. A new vision of quality —with plantings of classical varietals, preservation of old vines, application of European artistry, and advanced technology— is yielding world-class wines.
The magnificent winery, designed for both form and function in the shape of a cross, allows for customized gentle handling of the grapes, reducing the distance wine needs to be moved between winemaking steps.
Each of the wings is a small winery with two levels-a ground level that houses stainless steel tanks and French wooden vats for fermentation and storage, and an underground level for aging wine in oak casks. The two levels allow wine to flow from the tanks to the barrels by a traditional gravity transfer system.
The four wings converge in a circular central chamber, which resembles an amphitheater and was inspired by ancient classical temples.
