Spotlight on: Bodega Weinert, Iduna Weinert, Owner
Founded in 1975, Bodega y Cavas de Weinert is located in Lujan de Cuyo, Argentina´s cradle for top quality wines. Born in a small german colony in Southern Brazil, founder Don Bernardo C. Weinert built his name around international transport in South America. Fascinated by the world of wine, he decided to found his own winery in Argentina with one unconditional philosophy: producing high quality wines. He made an extensive study about the area of Mendoza: its climate, soil, grapes; and came to the conclusion that Lujan de Cuyo was the perfect place for his project. In 1977 he produced Weinert Malbec Star 1977, a wine known and acclaimed by the world´s most prestigious tasters. By 2001 Bernardo’s daughter, Iduna (23), joined the company as part of the Buenos Aires Sales team and Export Logistics, and since 2003 looks after Weinert's 24 export countries as Export Manager.
