"We are a family winery that is committed to sustainable vineyards, convinced that we have unique wines that allow us to attract the attention of the most demanding and curious palates," says Eugenia Brennan.
Tropa Salvaje ("Wild Herd") is an heroic gamble on Mendozan viticulture.
Named “La Heroica”, Amansado’s main vineyard is one of the most unusual in Argentina. Oenologist José Luis Miano and Juan Pablo Michelini, a celebrated Mendozan winemaker well known for his creativity, have planted terraced vineyards in the Rhône style, (something rarely seen in Mendozan viticulture) together creating uncommon wines of freshness and energy. Organically grown Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, along with old vine Pedro Ximénez, form the core wines of the project.
Tropa Salvaje is a tribute to the family's twin passions: thoughtful, patient winegrowing and their work in continuing the lineage of Argentina's native Criollo horses. The result is a portfolio of utterly original wines fashioned by hand that celebrates their homeland's finest attributes.
