After a long search in various regions of Argentina, the French winemaker Franois Lurton decides to plant his vineyards in highlands (1,100 m) and semi-desert (poor alluvial gravel reminiscent of Pessac-Lognan), in the plains at the foot of of the Andes mountain range: the Uco Valley.
Becoming a pioneer in the area, he built his winery, Bodega Piedra Negra, on 200 hectares of virgin land acquired in what a few years later would become the prestigious Los Chacayes Geographical Indication. Thanks to the experience he gained from him in his cellars in the rest of the world, he immediately puts into practice an environmentally friendly viticulture and produces extraordinary wines in this place.
