Wine of the Month – Zorzal

A boutique winery founded in 2008, Zorzal is located at the highest point of the Uco Valley, currently known as one of the most exclusive areas for viticulture in Argentina.

Founded by the Michelini brothers, and already gaining international recognition, Juan Pablo Michelini (Winemaking Director) selects grapes from vineyards in the region of Gualtallary, 1350 metres above sea level in the foothills of the Tupungato volcano. The cool breeze from the Andes gives the ideal condition for growing healthy grapes, with the desert climate leading to intense fruit personality, allowing Michelini to indulge in his preference for purity of fruit & austerity over oak & exuberance.

Vinification (that’s grape juice into wine to you & me) takes place in egg-shaped tanks (hence the wine’s being named Eggo!), allowing for pure fruit expression. They also have an automatic temperature control which can be operated remotely from anywhere in the world….CLEVER!
