Argentina's first grower-designated wines that offer a true 'sense of place.' Ed Lehrman and Nick Ramkowsky of Vine Connections have tasted over a thousand wines since they began importing from Argentina. In that time, they discovered a handful of grape growers whose results in the vineyards with specific varietals have been truly amazing--year in, year out. Ed and Nick's first encounter with many of these growers was at a posta del vinatero, or "tavern of the grape grower." Here they drank wine with the growers and spoke passionately for hours about their soils, their vines, and their quest for superior flavors in their grapes. In collaboration with Laura Catena and esteemed winemaker Estela Perinetti, Vine Connections salutes the hard work and skill of these growers by offering these vineyard-designated releases.Owner/Winemaker Nick Ramkowsky & Ed Lehrmann, Owners | Estela Perinetti, Winemaker
