Lavaque Winery was founded in 1870 by Jose Lavaque in Salta, Argentina. The Don Rodolfo wines are named after his son Rodolfo Félix Lavaque, who carries on the family's winemaking legacy today. The Lavaque family's vineyards encompass some of the finest properties across the Mendoza, Salta and Catamarca wine regions, each meticulously planted for the best grapes suited to each terroir.
Mendoza is the viticultural powerhouse of all of Argentina, and for good reason. Located in the eastern foothills of the Andes, in the shadow of Mount Aconcagua, vineyards are planted at the some of the highest altitudes in the world, and the area is celebrated as one of the world's premier grape-growing regions.
