Estela Perinetti comes from a family of wine makers and after working for the Catena family she has returned to her roots and now manages the family estate Las Estelas where she is fast becoming one to watch on the Argentinian wine scene. In 1940, Estela Perinetti's grandfather purchased a piece of land in the cold zone of Tupungato to produce Semillón and named it Finca Mangato. A few decades later, Dr. Héctor Perinetti, decided to plant red varieties in this vineyard. Later, Estela along with her mother, Estela Armando, chose the highest (1,300 masl) and rockiest lot to produce the vineyard's first Malbec. Today, Las Estelas is a project with three wines that honor the feminine attitude and love for wine of this great Argentine winemaker.
