Wine from Viña Cobos

With a shared dream and a passion of three people that decided to undertake a task of producing great Argentine red wine that would be on par with the worlds’ best known wines recognised by prestigious international media, American winemaker Paul Hobbs and partners Andrea Marchiori and Luis Barraud with viticultural heritage are the owners behind the dream that came true.

Viña Cobos

The Terroir

Founded in 1997, Bodegas Viña Cobos is located in Lujan de Cuyo, a wine producing sub region of Argentina’s largest viticultural area, Mendoza the first region to be recognised as an appellation.

Argentina is so large and has a variety of climatic differences providing great conditions for grape growing.

Wine grape varieties


The Andes Mountains provide an arid climate with a natural irrigation which provides water that is very scarce in Argentina and with the cold weather in winter keeping the grapes dormant and the summer allows for optimum grape growing conditions.

The soils are of alluvial origin and some have poor organic matter and others good with a mixture of clay, loam and calcareous stones.

The terroir is unique as Europeans originally brought in varietals and wine making techniques that has been used together to make great wines.

Wines from Viña Cobos

The Vineyards

Viña Cobos uses both their own vineyards as well as strategic partner vineyards to produce their wines with the Marchiori Vineyards as their emblematic vines that are owned by Andreas’s father and is located in the district of Perdriel with Chardonnay, Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon varietals.
Zingaretti and Rebon are also a part of the production with Rebon being only ten years old and Zingaretti grown by an Italian with careful and considerate attention for many years.

The Winery and Winemaking Process

A natural and non-invasive process with gentle treatments at every stage of the production is used to create their wines with grapes that have carefully been selected by identifying each plot in the vineyards.

They use old vines, low yields and respect the vineyards.

Their winery consists of stainless steel closed tanks as well as wooden barrels with a laboratory for the winemakers to experiment with their varietals ensuring that the character of the terroir is emphasized.

Their 1999 vintage received the highest score for an Argentinean wine.

Cobos Malbec and Cobos Volturno are the flagship labels of their winery taken from the vineyards of Marchiori and their portfolio consists of

  • Cobos
  • Bramare Vineyard Designation
  • Bramare Appellation
  • Cocodrilo
  • Felino

Bramare Vineyard Designation wines are inspired by the blooming vine with a selection of Marchioro Vineyard Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Zingaretti Vineyard Malbec, Rebon and Touza Malbec.

Bramare Appellation wine includes two Malbecs and one Cabernet Sauvignon highlighting the richness of Mendoza and shows the difference between the grape growing in the Lujan de Cuyo and Uco Valley.

Cocodrilo is a combination of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec and is named after a former label of Viña Cobos.

Felino’s label was inspired by the indigenous art of the Argentine people that lived 1000’s of years ago and the grapes are sourced from different regions in Mendoza with a selection of Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.

Latest on Sicily, where Etna has a huge impact on the taste, which is strong with a bitter aftertaste for the youngest wines, but older wines are fantastic. Drinking wine, and writing about them, are one the passions. Remember to drink responsibly 🙂
