The Zuccardi family came to Argentina from Italy at the end of the 19th century. In the 50s of the 20th century, Alberto V. Zuccardi, the father of current director José Alberto Zuccardi, started an irrigation company; a good choice, because in Argentina virtually no agriculture and arable farming can take place without irrigation.
To prove how well the irrigation company worked, Alberto Zuccardi planted the first vineyards in Maipú, in the province of Mendoza, in 1963. Ten years later, he bought a new vineyard east of Mendoza. His son José Alberto has been in charge of the wine company since 1985. Under various labels, Zuccardi produces wines of consistent and high quality in the middle and higher segment. The wines also regularly receive awards at international wine tastings and fairs.
