Antigal Winery and Estates Named New World Winery of the Year by Wine Enthusiast Magazine

Wine Enthusiast magazine has recognized Antigal Winery and Estates for its unwavering commitment to quality, innovation and sustainability in winemaking. This award is about Antigal’s continuous pursuit of excellence in producing wines that capture the essence of Argentinean terroir.
Each year, Wine Enthusiast celebrates the most influential members of the wine, spirits and beverage world for the annual Wine Star Awards.  Antigal is the only winery from Argentina getting a recognition in this contest in 2023.
Antigal was founded in 2000 by the Chilean Cartoni family, who made a bet on the quality of the wines produced in Argentina. They bought a century-old winery in Maipú, Mendoza, renewed it and added the latest winemaking technology.
“We are deeply honored to receive the New World Winery of the Year award from Wine Enthusiast magazine,” said Alessandra Cartoni, director, family member and co-owner of Antigal Winery and Estates. “This recognition is a testament to the hard work and passion of my family ,all of our employees in Mendoza,and partners in the United States and around the world, who make it possible to bring Antigal wines to more than 70 countries.” “Antigal Winery and Estates takes pride in its sustainable practices, focusing on environmental stewardship, responsible land management, and social responsibility. The winery’s commitment to sustainability aligns with its mission to preserve the land for future generations while producing wines of exceptional quality,” she continued.
