The foundation dates back to the end of the 1800s, when Felipe Rutini, an Italian immigrant to Argentina, established the winery called Bodega La Rural, in Coquimbito, a rural district in the Maipú department, Mendoza province. Today, Rutini Wines is a large and beautiful reality, with deep roots in the past, and an open view to the future. There are over four hundred hectares of vineyards, constantly growing, located at the foot of the Andes Cordillera, in the Uco Valley: places that enchant with their natural beauties and landscapes, among the most suggestive in all of Argentina. The altitude, ranging from 1000 to 1500 meters above sea level, the variety of microclimates, and the nature of the soils allow for the production of exceptionally high-quality grapes, vinified with advanced technologies, always respecting the principles of the founder, to whom, inside the winery, a Wine Museum is dedicated. Uncorking a bottle of Rutini means tasting Argentine wines of the highest quality, which amaze anyone for their typicality, balance, and elegance.
