Overview

Bodega Vistalba, founded by Carlos Pulenta, goes into a life story that is the most important reference when it comes to assessing the excellence of its wines. The descendant of an Italian family, Carlos Pulenta is the oldest son of Don Antonio Pulenta, one of the founders of the Bodega Penaflor, 80 years ago, which endured until 1997, when it was sold. Bodega Vistalba was built between 2001 and 2004 in a family-owned land at the heart of Vistalba (Lujan de Cuyo). This is where Carlos Pulenta developed his personal viticulture project, involving members of his family, consultants, enologists and a valuable group of people who really know this land. The winery is inspired in the Creole culture, resorting to cutting-edge technology and paying homage to traditional wine-making. It has been designed so that the entire winemaking process is completed using gravity and without pumps. The first wines were produced in the year 2003, and they were first placed on the market in the year 2005. Today, our wines are sold in more than 20 countries. In 2009 Alejandro Bulgheroni, connected to the agroindustry sector through several projects since the year 1999, began his participation in Bodega Vistalba, working with Carlos toward a common goal: "producing top-quality wines of world renown, with a marked identity and personality".

One of the best meals we had in Mendoza, even better than the meal at 1884 in our opinion. The vineyard was beautiful, the wine pairing for each course was amazing and the service was on point!
