Bodega Piedra Negra
After years of searching in various regions of Argentina, François Lurton planted his vineyard in high-altitude, semi-desert locations (with meagre soils reminiscent of those in Pessac-Léognan) at the foot of the Cordillera in the Uco Valley. This unexplored land was in the Chacayes district, a name which François then gave to his fine wine. As a pioneer in this valley, he built his Bodega Piedra Negra winery amid 200 hectares of virgin soil. Drawing on expertise gained all over the world, he immediately established environmentally-friendly architecture and began making remarkable wines.
