- Val de Uco, Mendoza, Argentina
Vaglio is the personal project of José Lovaglio Balbo, son of Argentine wine pioneer Susanna Balbo. He is one of the head winemakers at her winery, Dominio del Plata, in Lujan de Cuyo, but with Vaglio, which he owns and operates independently from his family's winery, José aims to showcase the different microclimates of northern Mendoza through terroir-driven wines.
In 2013 he found an old, small gravity-fed concrete winery in Tupungato for rent and refurbished it to meet his needs. Here, he produces single vineyard wines from different sub-regions and soil types, all vinified in the same way with minimal intervention and oak contact. Each of Jose's wines represent different stages of his life. With his burning desire to dig deeper and push limits, compounded with his years of experience at his family's winery, we believe that Jose has a bright future and we are proud to welcome him to our portfolio.
