The vineyards for Zorzal Wines are situated 4500 feet above sea level, making them some of the highest altitude vineyards in Mendoza, Argentina. The combination of altitude, alluvial soils, sunny days, low rainfall and wide temperature swings produce wines of outstanding distinction and quality.

To capture as much of this unique terroir as possible, the winery was designed to take advantage of the altitude by featuring four-story, exclusively gravity fed architecture. Winemaker Juan Pablo Michelini manages the vineyard and the winery, having received his formal training from University in Argentina, and hands on training with a number of highly respected wineries the world over.

This combination of outstanding terroir, thoughtful winery design, and expert winemaking have made Zorzal a category favorite in the shop, and we look forward to sharing them with you.
