our history

More than 200 years of passion to make great wines

Our family’s history in Argentina began in 1998, merging two centuries of French know-how, with the Argentine experience and the Mendoza terroir.

Michel Rolland, Advising Oenologist at Château Léoville-Poyferré and Château Le Crock, Cuvelier family properties for more than a century, offered Bertrand and Jean-Guy Cuvelier the opportunity to invest in theirhisAndean project. Seduced by Mendoza and by the”Clos de Los Siete” project, they decided to launch Cuvelier Los Andes. Seeking to implement their Grand Cru Classé de Bordeaux production techniques in the Uco Valley, they developed wines of excellence, with a signature Bordeaux style, and created Malbec-based blends, which are proudly presented as the Argentine cousins ​​of Château. Léoville-Poyferré.

From the beginning, the family decided to entrust the future of Cuvelier Los Andes to a Mendoza winemaker with vast experience, Adrian Manchón, First Winemaker and General Manager. Since 2009, Baptiste and Guillaume Cuvelier, the next generation of the family, are in charge of the estate and are taking Cuvelier Los Andes wines to the best and most demanding markets in the world.
