Bodegas y Vinedos Casarena
A 20-minute drive from Mendoza city you will find the Casarena winery in the Luján de Cuyo wine region. It is located in an old winery from 1937, which has been completely restored. The owners of Caserena want to honor the rich history and traditions of this region. They do this not only with the winery, but also with the old vines that can still be found here. Mendoza is the Argentinian wine region with the most awarded wines and Caserena is happy to contribute to that. Casarena follows a different path than most wineries. Rather than looking for undiscovered terroirs in new locations such as the Uco Valley, the winery remains in its home region of Luján de Cuyo, a place rich in history and unique micro terroirs. The winemaker, Leandro Azin, makes exceptional quality wines that capture the typicality of the area. Casarena has a total of almost 300 hectares of vineyards. They have one vineyard, Jamilla's Vineyard, in Pedriel and three vineyards in Agrela: Naoki’s Vineyard, Lauren’s Vineyard and Owen’s Vineyard. Each vineyard has unique characteristics when it comes to microclimate, soil type and age. Owen’s Vineyard is also referred to as "the survivor" because the vines of this vineyard date back to 1930.
