Héctor and Pablo were born in Mendoza, the cradle of wine, and grew up together in their family. Their childhood was linked to a sensory world, with aromas, ingredients and flavors that, over time, led them to choose the same professional path as winemakers. United by memories and the same passions, since 2002 they began their project as a small family winery and both became the spearhead for a new generation of winemakers who consolidated a path of evolution in Argentine viticulture. This is how the wines of the Durigutti brothers are born and that is how their own story begins, a family legacy in the place they chose to live and to work dedicatedly every day.
Durigutti PROYECTO Las Compuertas Cordisco 2020
“Our challenge,” says Héctor Durigutti, “is to get people to ask for Las Compuertas first and Malbec second.” Where this consistently brilliant wine is concerned, that moment surely can’t be far away. Savoury, layered, complex and enticingly balanced, it’s a concrete egg- aged red with notes of white pepper and summer berries and a chalky, refreshing note of minerality. 2022-27 Tim Atkins
