- ABOUT US -

Welcome to El Gaucho Winery

El Gaucho Winery serves fine wines from Argentina in the Texas Hill Country only 15 minutes from Lakeway. We focus on Malbec wines coming from two vineyards we own in Mendoza. Malbec is the most well-known and liked Argentine wine and we have five different types from our vineyards ranging from a Classico style to our exquisite Gran Reserva which is aged in French oak barrels for two years. We also offer Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Torrontes and other wines that we believe are special and unique.

- THE WINERY -

The opinion of those who know

All of El Gaucho Winery wines are remarkable for their authentic expression of the vineyard. The balance and subtle harmony achieved in our wines are unequivocal characteristics of our work in the vineyard and in the winery, so that year-after-year our wines faithfully express the local color of each variety and of every terroir. The intensity and balance of our wines comes from the meticulous care in the vineyard, of which both human craft and deep comprehension for the terroir are essential.

- The wine country of Mendoza -

Argentina is the fifth largest wine producer in the world. In the "New World", it is second only to the United States. Mendoza has historically been the area responsible for the finest wines produced in Argentina. The region has a semi-desert climate, soils are alluvial and the elevations are generally above 3000 feet. Mendoza is one of the principal areas in Argentina for the cultivation not only of grape vine, but for fruits and vegetables in general. The terroirs are particularly well suited for the Malbec varietal, specifically the zones of Lujan de Cuyo and Valle de Uco where we have our two vineyards.

- Our vineyards in Argentina -

The Mendoza wine country has three characteristics perfect for cultivating high quality grapes. The semi-desert climate has large temperature differentials, hot days and cools nights, dry air and over 340 days of sunshine. There is an abundant presence of fresh, clean water taken from the snow melt of the Andes and from artesian wells. And lastly, the alluvial soils have an excellent high mineral, low organic content. Our two vineyards are located 55 miles apart in two distinct zones. The first vineyard in, named Finca Austin, Luyan de Cuyo is approximately 2,600 feet msl and is located next to a dry river bed 60 and is or so miles east of the Andes Mountains. The soils are mostly clay. The lower elevation causes the temperatures to be slightly warmer during the day and evening. Finca La Passion is our second vineyard and is located in Valle de Uco 75 miles due south of Mendoza and much closer to the Andes Mountains. The soils are sandy. The elevation is higher at 3,500 feet msl and, therefore, the temperatures during the day and evening are cooler as compared to our first Vineyard. Additionally, higher elevations also mean more intense sunlight. These different terroirs create individual characteristics that can be experienced in the color, aromas, and taste. Come to our winery and see for yourself by comparing the wines from these two vineyards.

Shipments will be processed automatically on a quarterly basis. Each shipment will be conveniently billed to the credit card provided on your application. Unreported change of address, returned packages and redirected packages will result in additional fees and applicable shipping charges which will be passed on to the member. Please notify us in writing of cancellation and/or address changes at least 30 days before the first day of the shipping month. Please note that if a cancellation notice is not received 30 days prior to the shipping month, the scheduled shipment will be charged and shipped as scheduled. Wine may be picked up at winery with a 30 day advance notice. Any wine not picked up by member within 2 weeks after the release will be shipped. Membership is only available to persons of at least 21 years of age. Wine must be signed for by an adult 21 years of age or older upon delivery. Membership is currently available for direct shipment to the State of Texas.

We have one suggestion to make the shipment easier to receive. If possible, use your business as a shipment address. In doing so there will always be someone over the age of 21 to sign for the wine. There will not be the common occurrence of FEDEX needing to attempt a 2nd or 3rd delivery due to no one being home. Additionally, the wine will not be stored in an unknown condition in the FEDEX warehouse.

- EVENTS -

El Gaucho Winery has many events open to everyone throughout the year that combine wine, food, music and dance.

These events are a wonderful opportunity for friends and family to enjoy the afternoon or evening at the winery. Please look below for our upcoming events.

BI-MONTHLY DINNERS

Starting in late March

Starting in late March we will be hosting dinners at the winery twice a month on Fridays. The dinners will be something simple and fun, such a paella and Tango music and dancers, to a limited seating for a 4 course meal prepared by a well-known chef. The schedule of the dinners will be in our monthly newsletter (so please sign up on our email list) and posted on our Facebook page.

ARGENTINE ASADO - NOW IN SUMMERTIME "ASADO SATURDAYS UNDER THE STARS"
