Top four Argentine winemakers to watch

Tomás Stahringer, Bodega Polo and Vinyes Ocults

Stahringer is the winemaker at Lujan de Cuyo-based Bodega Polo and also has his own winemaking project called Vinyes Ocults. He studied oenology in Mendoza and has since gained experience overseas. He established Vinyes Ocults in 2007, selling out of his first wines in just two months. In 2008 he also took on a role at Bodega Polo.

Speaking about his experience of winemaking, he says: “I feel that by making wine I help give life to a creature whose heart secretly beats in the wombs of the sandy soils of Mendoza. This land has been nobly nourished by water coming from faraway glaciers in the Andes range. In its special aromas and colours, I see the complex history of vine growing, the effort of those who have tirelessly worked to make wine and the presence of my beloved ones.”

The Malbec Report praises Stahringer for his Vinyes Ocults Gran Malbec 2016, stating that he has something “of the conjuror about him”.
