Luminis’ main objective with this line of wines is to show the distinctive characteristics that our own grapes grown in Luján de Cuyo, part of the High Mendoza River region, are capable of expressing. The department of Luján de Cuyo has historically been the most important area to cultivate grapes for quality wines in Argentina and it is home to the most important and known Argentine wineries.
Reaching almost 3,300 feet above sea level and located only 20 kilometers outside the capital of the province of Mendoza, Luján de Cuyo is, as its city slogan says, “The Land of Malbec.” Located on a lower altitude valley and experiencing higher temperatures across the year, Luján de Cuyo tends to produce more “masculine” wines when compared with those coming from the Valle de Uco area. Our objective, here at Luminis, is to capture these differentiators and offer them through our Luján de Cuyo line of wines.
Total production of Luminis Luján de Cuyo Malbec 2017 was 805 cases
