SALENTEIN, HEART AND SOUL OF THE UCO VALLEY
Bodegas Salentein is the heart and soul of the Uco Valley—a magnificent project that has captured the imagination of the Argentine people and wine lovers from around the world. Home to Portillo, Killka, and Salentein wines, Bodegas Salentein has created a new vision of quality and character for this remarkable region. The company honors and promotes the culture and people of the Uco Valley while making wines that find success throughout the world.
In the Uco Valley Salentein farms more than 800 hectares of premium vineyards on an undulating estate of nearly 2,000 hectares in total, and turns those grapes into great wine with Argentina’s leading winemaker, the legendary Jose Galante.
The Uco Valley is clearly the future for Argentine wine. Its high elevation and stony alluvial soils create the perfect conditions for world-class wines. For twenty years Salentein has led the way in the Uco Valley, with a unique combination of estates that range over twenty-two miles and five different micro climates. Here Salentein is making a lasting commitment to the people, environment, and future of Argentina and the Uco Valley, creating great wines while generating hope and opportunities for the people who live here.
