Chacayes, Tunuyan, Uco Valley



The Michelini brothers, also winemakers at Mendoza’s renowned Zorzal and Passionate wineries, planted and built their biodynamic winery in the Los Chacayes subregion of the Uco Valley in Argentina in 2012.  SuperUco was originally inspired with the intent to showcase three unique calcareous soil types from some of the most highly regarded subregions of the Uco Valley.  They produce wines under the Calcareo and SuperUco labels.  The dodecahedron shaped winery consists of egg-shaped concrete amphoras, foudres, barrels, and concrete eggs.  The two hectare farm is planted in concentric circles so that the vines have 360 degrees of exposure to the sun.  The different varietals are planted from the center outward, as its vegetative cycle dictates.  This boutique, biodynamic winery produces very limited bottlings of top quality, terroir driven wines.
