Viña Cobos, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza

Viña Cobos is the dream of Napa Valley's trail-blazer Paul Hobbs.

In 1989, Paul Hobbs visited Mendoza for the first time. Driving over the Andes from Chile with his longstanding friend Jorge Catena, brother of the famous Nicolas Catena, he fell in love with the place, the people, but also with the potential to make great wine.

He began to work with the Catenas, firstly experimenting with wild ferments for Chardonnay and then with the variety that would become Argentina's calling card - Malbec. His first 10 barrel vintage of Malbec persuaded not only the Catenas, but also the American press of the potential with this grape. Paul established his own winery, Vina Cobos, in 1998 and, over 30 years later, Paul continues to push viticultural and winemaking boundaries to the max. Concentrating on the Valle de Uco, widely regarded as the highest quality region, Paul is the driving force for some of the most impressive wines in the country.

Cobos wines are the flagship of the winery and they are produced from the most vintage vines of Marchiori vineyard. These wines are elegant and subtle, highly powerful and concentrated with good complexity and balance.

Bramare Vineyard Designate captures the aromatic power, intensity and complexity of prominent lots in unique vineyards. Bramare confers all its vineyard potential to elegant and expressive wines. Its label is inspired by a blooming vine.

Bramare Appellation highlights the richness of Mendoza regions and it exquisitely shows the differences among the excellent grape growing potential in Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley. These wines are abundant, expressive and hedonistic with highly aromatic intensity, ripe fruit and soft tannins.

Felino wines stand out because of their freshness and fruity expression. Elaborated with grapes sourced from different regions in Mendoza, each of these varietal wines highlight their typical richness: Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. The line is intense and brilliant with a vivid acidity and delicate and balanced tannins.
