A few years before 1950, Alberto Zuccardi reached Mendoza from his homeland in Tucuman. In 1963, Alberto planted a vineyard in the region of Maipu not knowing that it would begin the great passion of his life, the wine industry. In 1990, his son, Jose Alberto Zuccardi, assumed the responsibilities as General Director of the company. In 2005, Sebastian Zuccardi, third generation of the family, began leading the development of the new stage of the winery expansion into the Uco Valley. In 2008, Sebastian began the area of Research and Development dedicated to the study of the terroir and the different variables that affect wine production. Construction of the Zuccardi winery Uco Valley began in 2013 and opened in March 2016 with the premise of producing wines with identity, through the continuous exploration of the different terroirs of the Uco Valley.
The Uco Valley at the foot of the Andes, Mendoza, is a cultivated oasis at the highest altitude. In this privileged location, our vineyards benefit from its cold and dry climate and wide temperature range. The combination of multiple microclimates, altitudes, types of soil and the care of the vineyard results in multiple terroirs. Zuccardi Valle de Uco has the challenge to interpret it faithfully to express their identity in the wine.
