In 1918, at the same time Hurlingham won the celebrated Argentina Polo Open, Don Martín Alsina founded La Chamiza Estate, a place where he could fulfill his dream of raising polo horses. As time passed, given the excellent qualities of the terroir, what once began as a meeting place for playing polo among friends, became the birthplace of the wines we produce today.
The winemaking project began in 2003, with the objective of achieving excellence in high-end wines, reflecting in every bottle quality, elegance and the essence of Argentina—attributes that can all be found in Polo, a sport in which Argentina is a world leader.
Mendoza, the main wine region of Argentina, has an ideal terroir for vine-growing. It is known for its excellent soils, considerable thermal amplitude, low rainfall and constant sun.
The vineyards that give origin to our grapes are located in the three most important winegrowing regions of Mendoza.
Luján de Cuyo and Maipú are known as the “First Zone” of Argentine wine due to the great prestige achieved by some of its exponents, for being considered the birthplace of Malbec, and for having the largest number of planted vineyards in the country.
La Chamiza estate is located in Tupungato, in Uco Valley. This region was recently discovered and is considered one of the finest in Argentina. Our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are cultivated here.
Finca La Chamiza is currently a member of ‘Wines of Argentina’ with active participation in major fairs such as Vinexpo, London Wine, International Wine Challenge among others. Its main concern is to promote worldwide the category of the Argentine wines.
We look into the future, trying to get the best expression of the terroir and transmitting, from Mendoza to the world, one of the most important sports traditions in Argentina: Polo.
