A Unique Terroir
Bodega Numanthia vines, the oldest of which were planted in 1880, are a living symbol of resilience. In order to endure the region’s dry climate, they need plenty of space so that their roots can spread out far and deep into the sandy and rocky soil. Living embodiments of tenacity, they are strong in the face of the sharpest winter and the heaviest summer’s suffocating heat.
From manual de-stemming to foot-crushing, creating wine from Tinta de Toro grapes involves handcrafting excellence and meticulous know-how—something Lucas Löwi is more than familiar with. Born in Mendoza, Argentina, at the foothills of the Andes Mountains, his immersion into the wine world began early. Surrounded by altitude vineyards, he learned how to cultivate vines in extreme weather conditions. As Estate Director, he seeks to preserve Bodega Numanthia’s heritage with the vision of offering wines on par with the best wines from Spain.
