Producer: Bodega Los Toneles

Initially called Armando Hermanos, Bodega Los Toneles was founded in 1922 by the Armando family, who built the classical, elegant and charming building in the style of the belle époque, using art nouveau details and ornaments to imprint the building with beauty and a unique personality. The winery's popularity began to rise under the name “Bodega de los Toneles” (Winery of the Tuns), due to the visual impact made by the huge French oak barrels where its precious wines were aged.

Eighty years later, in 2002, the winery was bought by the Millán family, who rescued its vintage spirit and combined it with modern technology and structural reforms to bring back its glorious past. The majestic building, declared part of the Cultural Heritage of Mendoza in 2008, accommodates historic pools as well as modern tanks and hundreds of barrels where the winery’s great wines are aged.
