The Spanish Return with Lofty Expectations

The story of Acordeón goes back to the early 1990s, when the Ferrer family of Barcelona, Spain (producers of Freixenet, Segura Viudas and California’s Gloria Ferrer) took notice of several exceptional wines emanating from Mendoza, 7,000 miles away. They were impressed with their quality, style and value. Peripatetic to a fault, Jose Ferrer and his family were quick to visit. They were stunned with the exuberant mix of tradition, terroir, investment, and innovation in the region. They were charmed by the local Latin welcome and generous guidance.

After prospecting several months and interviewing local winemakers and families - as well as retailers - they purchased a choice 773 acre estate in the prestigious Tupungato region of the Alto Valle de Uco. At the height of 1,270 meters (4,165 ft), Finca Ferrer was born. With our vines now reaching an average age of fifteen, it is now time to share the viticultural bounty: Acordeón wine.
