about the producer MATIAS RICCITELLI
“winemaking,” says matías riccitelli, “is not for cowards.” a breakout star from a young age, riccitelli was brought up in a family and region steeped in winemaking. he was born in cafayate, salta, a small village in northern argentina where winemaking is everything – an omnipresent trade and way of life. he grew up between cafayate and mendoza, studying and working with his father and mentor, legendary winemaker jorge riccitelli. from there, he went on to travel much of the wine world, learning along the way, and returned to mendoza to serve as chief winemaker for two of argentina’s top wineries, fabre montmayou and bodega norton. his boutique property was founded in las compuertas in 2009, and it is here that he now focus all of his creative energies, producing wines of freshness, nuance and vibrancy.
