WE ARE XUMEK
Our terroir wines invite us to enjoy and delight them by discovering qualities and outstanding characteristics.
Almost two decades ago, and after travelling through various geographies, we choose the Zonda valley as the place to carry out our dream.
The challenge for transformation, the natural landscape and beauty were powerfull enough to start this adventure. Located in The Andes mountains foot hills, The Huarpes populations homeland have been a great historical knowledge witness.
Xumex is a Project that seeks to reflect an extreme and unique enviorment. Grapes are the most important protagonists, although our vineyards interact with the native flora and fauna in a raw and rugged nature environment.
We look forward reflecting the power and personality of Zonda´s valley in pure and authentic wines, wich come from unique vineyards, sowed at different altitudes, slopes and soils.
Zonda valley is a privileged area with an unique microclimate, located in the south center of San Juan Province and in a sinuous valley at the foothills of the Andes Mountains. It has a semi- desertic climate with 100 millimeters of anual rainfall, therefore climates variations, accompanied by the soft and permanent Zonda wind, generates a healthy environment for the grapes and also ideal for producing great wines.
It is an-area declared “Geographical Indication” (IG ZONDA), thanks to its attributes for planting grapes and making high quality wine with unique attributes.
As long years passed we have planted three vineyards on this great natural terrain, that, despite being parto f the same valley, they have uniqueness and special characteristics.
This allows us to have grapes with a plurality of profiles, in terms of flavours, freshness, maturaty, concentration and textures.
The possibility of having three terroirs, allows us to create innovative wines, combining the best atributes of each yard and at the same time, achieve unique expressions of each one of them.
