Wines / Argentina / Mendoza / Las Perdices

SUSTAINABLE

When Don Juan Muñoz arrived in this land to grow his vines and produce his own wine, he was astonished at the large number of partridges roaming here.

A neighboring farmer told him that these ancient local inhabitants could often be seen in groups of three. As the days passed, the partridges became Don Juan’s constant companions in his long workdays. Thus he decided to name his winery Partridge Vineyard: “Viña las Perdices”.

The winery today is a family operation created by Juan Muñoz López, his wife Rosario, his sons Nicolas and Carlos, and his daughter Estela. In 1952, Juan Muñoz López decided to leave his hometown of Andalucia, in southern Spain, and he and his family emigrated to Mendoza, Argentina, seeking new horizons. Their shared passion for terroir and for growing high-quality grapes, and the challenge of making fine wine from their own vineyards motivated them to create a winery in this tradition.
