Zuccardi Valle de Uco

Zuccardi Valle de Uco
The new Zuccardi Valle de Uco winery is a tribute to the austere and solemn mountain which defines the climate and the soils of the region.
Located in Paraje Altamira, the construction "emerges" from the soil and it is part of it because it was made with natural elements, stones of the place, rounds, whites, calcareous. It is made of concrete from the outside to inside, from the stone walls, oblique and imposing, even bare to concrete vats inside of which are the wines.


The main Sustainable Wine Tourism Practice of Verallia  Recycle Glass Campaign: “Vidrio, una acción transparente”

Verallia Argentina launched the glass recycling campaign “Vidrio, una acción transparente”, to promote environmental awareness and support of nonprofit institutions. 

This campaign was initiated four years ago. It consists of placing containers in strategically located venues (Supermarkets, Shopping, Instituto Nacional Vitivinícola, etc.) where people can deposit their glass bottles instead of throwing them away. Verallia donates the value of this glass to an organization of public welfare, which in this case is the Dr. Humberto Notti Children's Hospital Foundation who intends this donation for the construction of Rehabilitation Center.

Since its beginnings in June 2012, the recycle glass campaign had donated $235.000 = 240.000 kilogram of glass collected to recycle. We started with 4 containers and today we have 30.

The best way to experience Mendoza is out in the vineyards overlooking the awesome Andes mountains, and the ultimate spot that combines the life of the vineyards with the remoteness and grandeur of the Andes is the Uco Valley.

Since I moved to Mendoza in 2009, I’ve seen wineries and hotels laying roots closer and closer to the Andes each year, and last year when Casa de Uco officially opened it became the wine resort perhaps closest to the Andes of them all.

‘Experiences’ are the key to wine tourism success stories

On November 12, Bilbao’s Guggenheim Museum was the scene of the 2016 international  ‘Best Of Wine Tourism’ awards ceremony sponsored by the Great Wine Capitals Global Network.  The ceremony took place during the gala dinner that marked the end of the Network’s annual general meeting.
