Andeluna Cellars is a winery and vineyard rich with history and romance – just like the country it calls home. This beautiful place is the inspiration for the name Andeluna, which was chosen to symbolize the romance and heritage of the Argentine moon illuminating the magnificent Andes Mountains that frame the Uco Valley near the town of Tupungato. The combination of great vineyards growing classic varietals with world-class winemaking creates flavors and wines that cannot be found anywhere else.
Premium quality wine starts with premium quality grapes, and this is the essence of Andeluna. In the late 19th Century, many Italians immigrated to Argentina seeking opportunities that the rich and beautiful land provided. Searching for nothing less than the perfect place to make the world’s best wine, they came to Mendoza and planted vineyards that began the heritage of Argentina’s winemaking industry.
Andeluna Cellars is owned by well-known international businessman H. Ward Lay. Ward Lay was introduced to the business world by his father, the late Herman W. Lay, founder of Frito-Lay and former Chairman of the Board of PepsiCo. He brings a world vision and an indomitable drive for quality to Andeluna. He understands that great wines require more than just superior quality grapes; they require a combination of world-class winemaking techniques, state-of-the-art facilities and outstanding people to create a truly superb wine.
French grape varieties, Argentine soils, Italian ancestry, world class winemaking, American drive, the latest in technology and a team of people who all seek the same goal: to make the greatest wines in the world.
This is Andeluna.
