Hacienda del Plata. An Andean ranch, a place, a history
In the countryside, at the base of the Andes mountains in the 18th century, Hacienda del Plata was born.
Located on the north banks of the Rio Mendoza, Hacienda del Plata was a crossroads, a meeting point for travellers, cattle drivers, and cattle. A place to rest and gather strength before the arduous journey into Chile across the Andes mountains.
Hacienda del Plata was a typical Andean homestead where starry nights were spent next to crackling fires. Those who lived and worked there had a quiet and reserved character, respecting and accepting the destiny nature imposed on them. Their legacy is "a way of being" -- constantly learning to recognize the values and principles that govern life in peace, in balance, and in communion with our natural surroundings.
Today, the old house lies under the waters of the Porterillos Dam, where it sleeps an eternal dream, immune to the passage of time. But the González-Toso family keeps the old traditions and spirit alive. We continue to embody the secrets of our environment -- the silence of the mountains and the tranquil and quiet character of the ranchers.
The irresistible mysticism of the Andes is captured in our wines. The symbol of our brand represents the union between man, land, and the feelings it evokes.
