he history of Trapiche begins in 1883, in a small vineyard called El Trapiche, in the district of Godoy Cruz, Mendoza, where the grapes for the first fine wines were grown.
Set amidst vineyards and located in Maipú, Mendoza, at the foot of the Andes, this Florentine style building from 1912 is an icon of Mendoza's wine architecture.
With more than 130 years of experience, Trapiche has earned its place as a pioneering brand in the introduction of French vines, the production of varietal wines, the import of French oak barrels and the use of stainless steel tanks.
Trapiche owns 1,255 hectares of vineyards and works collaboratively with more than 300 growers from different areas of the province of Mendoza, offering them valuable advice throughout the grapevine growing season, in a continuous effort to improve wine quality.
