Mendoza is celebrated for its reds, particularly Malbec. Their whites haven't generated the same amount of interest recently, however, in the last few vintages Argentina's white wines have been making great strides. Vineyards are now sought out for their specific soil types and micro-climates and now winemakers are using varieties like Sauvignon Blanc and Torrontes to express the distinctive terroir. It appears that white wine is becoming more fashionable in Argentina. While it may not make the same impact as with Malbec a decade ago, Argentina’s winemakers are proving that their white wines today are worth exploring.

Founded in 2002 by small-family growers in Mendoza, La Posta winery is the brainchild of Laura Catena, wine pioneer and daughter to legendary winemaker Nicolas Catena, who is said to be the most influential Argentine wine producer of all time.
