About the Winery

In the Uco Valley located in the district of San José of Tupungato, on the world-renowned ‘Ruta del Vino’, one can see the sprawling Atamisque estate which comprises a winery, restaurant, lodging, and even a trout farm and a 9-hole gold course.

Behind a charming stone wall, visitors are welcomed by a grove of poplars. After these first steps in the estate, one will already get a feel of the richness, diversity and peacefulness of this project. The owners John & Chantal Du Monceau invite you to discover and enjoy the harmony between leisure, recreation and the sound of nature.

HISTORY

Uco was an Indigenous chief of the Huarpes Millcayac people who lived in the valley centuries ago. Around 1941-1493, the Incas incorporated the Valley to their vast empire, the Tawantinsuyu – translated as the empire of ‘the four parts’. The Valley would become part of the Collasuyu. In 1608, the Jesuits settled in Mendoza and in 1658 founded a rural property in the Uco Valley, the San José estancia. This gave birth to the town and what would later become the Atamisque estancia.

This property, which originally possessed 19,000 ha, was divided at the end of the 20th century. The estancia passed through several owners, until a French man acquired it: John Du Monceau. He had fallen in love with the place and had decided to settle down there with his wife, Chantal, whose grandfather had been a winemaker in the French region of Beaujolais. This prompted her to support the idea of building a winery in the property. Thus Bodega Atamisque was born, inspired by the name the land once possessed.

The first harvest was proudly achieved in March 2007.

THE VINEYARD

The vineyard is located on a slope just below the Andes, at 1,300 meters above sea level. Because of this, the ground has an interesting mix of alluvial soil, with rocky substrate and top caps of sandy loam texture. The terroir of the San José district of Tupungato is one of the best of Mendoza because of the combination of sunny days and cold nights, which are required to obtain the perfect concentration of colors, aromas and soft tannins, which allows producing powerful, elegant wines with great potential for aging. The harvest is always done by hand, allowing better focus on sanitation and maturity control.

In addition to the classic Malbec, the zone’s fresh climate allows Atamisque to produce excellent Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.

ELABORATION

Atamisque’s elaboration facility is equipped with the best technology, and incorporates ingenuous ideas such as the flagstone roof of San Juan, inspired by customs of the mountainous region of the French and Italian Alps – A true innovation for a winery at an international level.

The winery, which has a capacity of 1,000,000 litres, was conceived according the law of gravity, so that the elaboration process would have a cadence in its successive steps without needing to use pumps. This allows for the movement of raw material without damaging the berries.

For the red wines, fermentation is kept under a certain temperature and lasts for 15 days. Subsequently the marc is left in contact with the new wine during a time period that can last from 10 to 15 days. For the Catalpa and Atamisque lines, the free-run wine then goes on to age for 12 to 16 months in superior barrels made from French Vosges, Allier and Nevers oak, in order to gain opulence and complexity.

SPECIAL GUESTS

Meet Atamisque’s international sales manager Martin Dundas, who will be sharing more about their wines as the night progresses.
