The Potrero winery is one of the oldest and most important in Argentina. Founded in 1890, the winery is located in the Mendoza region, known for its excellent wine production. The company was founded by Don Leoncio Arizu, a visionary entrepreneur who invested in the Mendoza region when it was still underdeveloped. The winery grew rapidly, becoming one of the leading wine producers in the country. In 1904, the company began exporting its wine to Europe and the United States, gaining international prestige. Over the years, the company has continued to innovate, adopting new technologies and production techniques to improve the quality of the wine. In 2001, Potrero was acquired by the Catenazzi family, who have continued to carry on the company’s tradition of excellence and innovation. Today, Potrero is one of Argentina’s most respected wineries, known for its production of high-quality wines, including the celebrated Malbec. The winery is open to the public for tours and tastings, giving visitors the opportunity to learn about the history and culture of wine in Argentina.
