In 1928, Italian immigrant Valentin Bianchi realized his dream of owning a vineyard and small winery called El Chiche in Mendoza, Argentina. In the early 1950s, when Valentin's sons joined the company, he renamed the company Valentin Bianchi. Today his grandsons, Valentin Eduardo, Ricardo Stradella and Alejandro Ruben are in charge. The Valentin Bianchi vineyards Asti, Las Paredes and Dona Elsa comprise over 716 acres and are located in San Rafael, which is thought to have the best soil in the Mendoza region. The vineyards are filled with rootstock from Italy, as well as from California and France. Francisco Martinez is the wine maker for all Valentin Bianchi labels, and has been with the winery since 1979. In 1996, winemaker Robert Pepi, of Napa, Califonia was hired as a consultant to introduce new techniques while maintaining the wines' Argentine character.

Tasting notes
Slightly golden with delicate and persistent bubbles. Delicate nose of tropical fruit, with marked notes of toasted nuts.
