A wine corner in a crazy world



Bodega & Cavas de Weinert, established by Don Bernardo Weinert, a Brazilian of German descent, is located in Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza. Before establishing the winery, Don Bernardo conducted an extensive analysis of Mendoza's climate, soil, and vines, ultimately choosing Luján de Cuyo as the ideal location for his venture. The winery, acquired in 1974, underwent significant restoration and modernization, incorporating advanced technology in its wine production processes.

A key figure in the winery's history is Rául de la Mota, renowned for his role in modernizing Argentine winemaking. De la Mota's expertise greatly influenced the winery's early development. Later, in 1996, Swiss oenologist Hubert Weber joined the team. At the young age of 27, he took on the role of the main oenologist, a position he holds to this day.

Weinert is situated in Luján de Cuyo at an elevation of 900 meters above sea level. This high-altitude region, near the Andes mountains, is conducive to producing complex and well-structured wines. Notably, Weinert has a practice of aging its wines in the bottle for extended periods before release, often offering wines that are over a decade old.
