Casarena Winery and Vineyards is a viticulture project that honors the rich tradition of Agrelo and Perdriel, in Luján de Cuyo, two of the best terroirs in Mendoza. For this reason, the preservation of the plants that are the origin of the viticulture industry in Mendoza is our main concern. At 945 meters (3100,39 ft) above sea level in the High Valley of the Mendoza River, these superb designations are home to some of the oldest and most precious vineyards in the province. Casarena is located in the heart of Perdriel, in the building of a century-old winery, built in 1937, fully renovated for this project. The different properties in Luján de Cuyo were chosen according to their different geographical situations as for height, orientation and soil composition.
