Wines / Argentina / Mendoza / Rutini

The Rutini family winemaking tradition began in the early 19th century in Le Marche, Italy, when Francisco Rutini started making wines for the local market.  His only son Felipe Rutini immigrated to Argentina to extend the winemaking tradition. Since its foundation in 1885, Rutini Wines has been recognized for its extraordinary quality and character of its wines.  As Don Felipe Rutini built the winery under the slogan ¨Labor and Perseverance,¨ he created a lasting legacy for top quality wines in Argentina. 

Don Felipe passed away in 1919.  Continuing the tradition, the Rutini family began to develop further the production of fine white and red varietals such as Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec. Later on, the Chenin grape was also incorporated.

Leading the industry in 1925, the Rutini family planted the first vineyards in Tupungato, in the heart of the Uco Valley. Named after one of Mendoza´s mountain peaks, the Tupungato Valley was no more than a stop-over on the road to the mountains when the Rutini family began to plant their first vines. At an elevation of 3000 to 5000 feet above sea level, the Tupungato Valley offers many different microclimates, creating optimal growing conditions. Today it is recognized as one of Mendoza´s premier viticulture regions.  Today,   Rutini is widely recognized as Argentina's premier producer of fine varietal and blended wines.
