Harvest 2018 Historic Yields for Doña Paula

Healthy grapes return excellent quality wines.



Doña Paula had a record harvest in 2018 with a total production of 8.6 million kilos of grapes. Although yields were high in general this year, Doña Paula had the highest average in the province. The season was dry and temperatures were normal, unlike in 2017, when the cold, dry season resulted in very low yields.

Doña Paula’s head winemaker, Marcos Fernández, commented that both the red and white wines obtained show excellent quality resulting from the healthy grapes. In terms of aromatics and phenolic maturation, there was a significant change between the grapes harvested before and after March 15–20, especially in red varieties such as the Malbec from the Uco Valley.

The grapes were vinified in the winery in Ugarteche, which has a capacity for nine million liters divided into two main naves, Los Cardos, with a majority of concrete tanks, and Doña Paula, with stainless steel tanks, barrels, and oval concrete vessels.

The winery has more than 3,000 French oak barrels, cement eggs, and two pneumatic presses for cold maceration. Doña Paula has 703 hectares of vineyards planted in the best terroirs in Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley and exclusively makes estate-bottled wines (wines that are made solely with grapes from our own vineyards). The meticulous attention to detail in the vineyards guarantees consistent quality and the purest expression of the vines.

Our wines are very fresh with tremendous aromatic expression. They have a pronounced varietal identity and faithfully reflect the particularities of each terroir. They are made to preserve the fruity and floral primary aromas and are complex, authentic, and captivating.
