The Story

of 1853 Old Vine Estate

The story of 1853 Old Vine Estate begins in the dreams of freedom of an Italian immigrant family, who moved into the Uco Valley of Mendoza, Argentina; without knowing that 100+ years later their humble vineyard would be producing some of the most exclusive, unique, and flavorful wines in the world. Especially, when we talk about Malbec, 1853 Old Vine Estate has a unique combination of the perfect conditions with the perfect terroir to produce the best expression of Malbec wine in the world.

The Heritage of this single vineyard preserves the original French genetics of Malbec brought in the year 1853. See, a few years later, after the original french vines were brought to Argentina, there was a terrible disease called phylloxera that destroyed nearly every single Malbec vineyard in Europe. Moreover, throughout the years, most vineyards have modified their vines with GMOs and other genetic modifiers so they become stronger and produce more wine. Making Argentina and especially Mendoza, the only place in the world where you can find Malbec vines with the original French DNA. 

1853 Old Vine Estate is one of the last few vineyards which remains with the original malbec genetics without modifying it; and cultivating it in the closest way to its tradition, using certain innovations to make the process more efficient.  In 2012, a group of experienced entrepreneurs with a passion for wine making and specialists in the terroir of Uco Valley, found this vineyard, a hidden gem in the valley; and by 2016 the first batch of wine hit the global market, available in 10 countries around the world.

Throughout the years the project has acquired fans and international recognition thanks to its incredible quality and unique flavors. They are highly sought after because of their exclusive nature. Only 4,000 cases of wine are produced every year and they are exported all over the world, making 1853 Old Vine Estate one of the most unique and exclusive wines in the world.
