    PULPERIA/ FARM STORE/BOUTIQUE WINERY

    On traditional Argentine ranches, the pulperia was the heart of the estancia. Derived from the word “pulpa,” which is Spanish for “octopus,” the pulperia is the nexus for all of the arms of the operation — a place to buy meat, produce, honey and wine, and to barter, borrow a book, trade and gossip.

    Our pulperia honors this tradition. This rustic little general store is the heart of the Finca and is an inviting and comfortable space to get a slice of vineyard living. The large shady verandas are the perfect place to relax, have a glass of wine, and soak in the sights and sounds of the Finca. We offer a selection of produce from the Finca and the region for sale, as well as our favorite wines from Valle de Uco. Inquire about wine, food and entertainment offerings, including empanadas, traditional parilla, bread fresh from the mud oven, and intimate live music events.

    Our Award-Winning Boutique Wines

    In 2006 we removed an old apple orchard from our finca and planted 3 hc of Malbec. Our idea was more or less landscaping we could drink ! But over the years with lots of work and with a steep learning curve, we are producing some very nice wines. All of our wines are laboriously and meticulously hand-produced by our family of owners, skilled employees and our willing and enthusiastic guests. We don’t mass market our wines, we are the true example of Boutique. We don’t enter countless wine competitions. You will not find our wine on your next international flight served in some small plastic cup.

    We typically sell only to the guests of our finca and a few local wine shops. Like a vitamin, we drink only 1 bottle a day! Matias Michelini has been elaborating our wine in his small winery La Milongita since 2015. Currently we have two lines and with the 2017 bottling soon we will have 3 additional options.

    MALBEC JOVEN 2016

    100% Malbec … “A young wine” that rests for up to 8 months in a combination of French & American oak. Fresh with notes of red fruits married with a touch of oak and a dark chocolate finish…yummy with light lunches, seafood salads, etc. This wine received 90 points from Robert Parker.

    PRIMERA HILERA 2016

    “The first row” 80% Malbec with a 20% Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend. Aged 8 months in a combination of French & American oak. This is a delightful wine with a flavor that takes many complex twists and turns — of course lots of red fruits, espresso coffee, a kiss of oak with a hint of a Madagascar black pepper finish. Perfect for an evening with friends and a traditional Argentine Parrilla. 2017 wines yet to be bottles will include Petite Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2013 we added to our Malbec vineyards these most interesting varietals

    Fruits and Herbs “De la Huerta”

    Originally Finca Ogawa was an apple farm producing over 750000 kilos of apples annually. Between 2005-2016 we removed these old trees and started shaping what was to become finca Ogawa. We have saved many of the trees which we use to produce jams and eat fresh.  We also have fig trees, peach, pear, and apricot trees

    Every year we plant a huge garden for our family and friends. We sell a variety of seasonal products ranging from peaches to potatoes! We also offer a dried herbs and mixes of herbs.
