Eric, The Cowboy Winemaker says “If anyone knows the very land of Argentina, it is the gauchos. The earth is their bed; the stars, their roof; the open fire, their kitchen.”
They produce the Gauchezco wines from the rich soils of Argentina, and it is with the gaucho’s shared love of the land that they named their historic vineyard, Gauchezco.
This legendary vineyard was founded in 1881 by the Governor of Mendoza Tiburcio Benegas in Barrancas – Maipú.
The long desired dream of the Anesi family came true when they finally purchased their ideal vineyard in the legendary site that is now the Gauchezco Vineyard. With fierce dedication, they continue to make this glorious historic property synonymous with world class wine. Eric Anesi, moved to Mendoza, Argentina at age 27 in order to learn about the wine business from the ground up – literally. He started by taking ground and water samples from potential vineyard sites; picked grapes alongside other workers, who thought he was crazy for putting in such hard labor for “fun”; committed himself to speaking fluent Spanish; and, for the past several years has devoured any and all information and practical experience on growing the best grapes and making the best wine in Argentina.
