more about the Winery

La Celia

Eugenio Bustos arrived in the Uco Valley and planted the first Malbec vines which he had received in exchange for his finest breed of horse. In 1890, he founded La Celia Winery to honor his daughter Celia. Today we continue his tradition, producing wines which reflect the true expression of this unique terroir.
