Bodega Nanni: A Family Tradition

Posted October 12, 2017 by Rudi Goldman

An insightful story of a passion for natural winemaking by a small Argentine producer with over a century of family tradition. My wife and I first discovered the delightful taste and aromas of Torrontes wine in the cafes and restaurants on the square in the sleepy village of Cafayate, Argentina. Comparing the various Torrontes from local producers, although it was a difficult choice, we decided that the Nanni Torrontes had the most appeal to us. This dry, but fruity wine’s aromas provided a delightful nose and surprising finish.

“Looking to discover what made Bodega Nanni’s Torrontes so special, I decided to make a short film about them. What I discovered was a family with a local winemaking tradition that dates back over one hundred years.”
