About Gen del Alma
Gen del Alma began in 2011 when five wine-loving friends planted a 7-hectare vineyard in Gualtallary at 1400 meters above sea level on alluvial soil composed of calcium carbonate and granite. The group began making wine in a small winery built in 1952 in the town of Tupungato, where they work with concrete vats, eggs, and amphora made from local sand and stone. Belen Sanchez makes the wines, and Matias Prieto farms the vineyard. We currently import two different cuvees. One is an unfiltered Chenin Blanc from Villa Seca, Tunuyan. The other is a carbonic maceration blend of Pinot Noir and Malbec that comes from the estate vineyard in Gualtallary. These two wines are fun, bright, and fresh and show a lighter style of Argentina that we are fond of.
