Bodega Sottano is the result of a family tradition that has been enriched and maintained over several generations. The winery essentially strives to unite hard work and new technologies to preserve the gifts of nature and showcase them in their wines. Taking care of every detail ensures the desired outcome. One of the pioneers in the Cuyo region’s viticulture industry was Fioravante Sottano. Arriving from Italy in 1890, he settled in Mendoza. Nowadays, the winery is owned by the fourth generation of his family. Since 1998, his grandson Ricardo Sottano and his great-grandsons Diego, Pablo, and Mauricio have been carrying on his legacy in order to produce premium wines.
