Bodega Raffy was built from the ground up by the Raffy family in the province of Mendoza.
Manager, Jean-Louis Raffy, has the ambition to reveal the Argentinian Malbec’s fullest potential. In the Valley of Tupungato, the growers tenderly care for vines with agricultural methods that are suited to the land.
The region’s weather conditions give the vineyards a natural protection from pests, allowing Raffy to cultivate without using any chemicals or pesticides.
The Bodega and its vineyard were founded in 2007 by Frenchman, Jean-Louis Raffy. When he constructed the 8.5 hectare estate, he installed the French philosophy that great wine is made from a combination of climate, terroir and a grape that is well adapted to its natural environment.
To ensure Bodega Raffy’s wines are regarded as some of the best in Argentina, the family are guided by the expertise of world-renowned winemaker Marcelo Pelleriti.
Every harvest is hand picked by the estate’s growers, letting them focus on finding the healthiest grapes which have reached their perfect maturity. The vineyard limits their production to 100,000 bottles, allowing the estate to work only with the finest-quality grapes.
Aswell as its own vineyard planted with Malbec, Bodega Raffy also manages some high quality parcels of old vines in neighbouring properties. These vineyards are extremely rare for Argentina as they are at least 50 years of age, making them of particular importance for the Raffy estate.
