Superuco Winery

Like many great projects, SuperUco was born as a shared dream, which with time and work we were sculpting into a solid reality. The four Michelini brothers, Gerardo, Matías, Gabriel and Juan Pablo, together with Daniel Sammartino, gestated the idea, developed it and transformed it for almost five years to turn it into this fertile present that we had imagined long ago in time. Five people united by a project, by an idea of ​​wine, but especially by a passion.Today, SuperUco is a constant search to polish, with increasing precision, the art of making wines from the terroir where we live. Wines from the terroir of which we are part. We make pure wines; wines with a transparent message that express all the complexity of their origin. The Uco Valley; our place in the world.

Climate change is one of the main challenges facing humanity since it is expected to be an environmental, social, and economic threat. The olive tree and the vine are perennial crops where the yield and quality of their products (wine and oil) are greatly influencedby climate, making them very susceptible to global warming. The increase in temperatures will lengthen the vegetative period of vines and olive trees and all their phenological stages will spread, including maturation, thereby causing an imbalance in the composition in warm areas and affecting the quality of wines and oils. For this reason, the agricultural and oenological sector faces enormous challenges, forcing them to adapt to future changes.

Mendoza counts around 150 wineries open to the public during normal times. Many of them are focusing on sustainability, committing themselves for the current and future improvement of their surroundings. We would like to inspire you by sharing some leading cases worth highlighting!
