- Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina
RJ Viñedos is a family owned winery run by founder Raul Joffre and his four daughters. The winery began in 1996 when Raul purchased a traditional cement tank winery in the Perdriel region of Lujan de Cuyo and a small vineyard in the Los Sauces region of the Uco Valley. They now have 60 hectares in the Uco Valley, as well as holdings in Alto Agrelo and up north in the Calchaquíes de Cafayate Valley, la Salta.
The vineyards are all sustainably farmed; no chemicals are used in either the vineyards or the winery.
Winemaker Sebastían San Martín takes a minimalistic approach, as he believes in letting the grapes have their own voice, and looks for purity of fruit with little intervention.
