Directly translating to “Ally,” the Recuerdo Aliado is a pure expression of Malbec, hand-sorted for its superiority and aged in French oak barrels for eighteen months.
The story begins in Mendoza, Argentina, in a rock-strewn vineyard encircled by majestic weeping willow trees. With a perfect view of the Andes Mountains, we frequently gather here to delight in a mid-day or evening asado. After a long meal in the vineyard, accompanied by plenty of wine (and good conversation, of course), we started to discuss a ”Northern Hemisphere (38° North) meets Southern Hemisphere (32° South)” winemaking partnership. After a visit to The Vines of Mendoza by Paul Leary, a Private Vineyard Estate Owner (PVE) and principal at Blackbird Vineyards in Napa Valley, Recuerdo Wines was born.
