La Florita´s Winery and Vineyards are named after our loving Grand Mother Flora Prescenda de Romano "La Florita". She was an unforgettable jolly woman who offered us her love and the softest caresses. Flora´s warm home was the place where the family meet and where the children turned into adults under her care. She owned a store named “El Fenix”, an exciting place where we had lot of adventures and we lived the best stories of our lives. The memories we had together to our granny, inspired us to build our family house just beside our winery, that way we can honor her tradition and continue her legacy.
In 2019 we started building our winery, just in the heart of our vineyards, a beautiful place guarded by our ancient 4 walnuts of more than 100 years..
The winery has more than 500 square meters, it will produce 150.000 litres of artisanal wines in 2021. It will be equipped with concrete pools, stainless steel tanks, mud vases and concrete amphoras.
La Floritas winery was inspired by the architecture of the first school of enology in Latin America, it was founded in Mendoza in 1897m, today called ¨La Enoteca¨, one of the most prestigious historic landscapes of Mendoza.

I have been a winemaker for 15 years but I worked on this for 25 before I start studying. My family is linked to vitiviniculture since my Grandfather, I am the 3rd generation that followed these steps.
