Bodegas Kaiken is a winery located in Mendoza, Argentina. It was founded in 2002 by Chilean winemaker Aurelio Montes, who saw the potential of the Argentine terroir and decided to expand his wine empire into this region. The winery is named after the Kaiken, a wild goose that flies over the Andes Mountains and symbolizes the connection between Chile and Argentina.
Bodegas Kaiken produces a range of wines, including Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Bonarda, and Torrontés. The winery's flagship wine is the Kaiken Ultra Malbec, which is made from grapes grown in the Uco Valley and aged in French oak barrels. Other notable wines include the Kaiken Obertura, a blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot, and the Kaiken Terroir Series, which includes single-vineyard wines that showcase the diversity of the Mendoza terroir.
Bodegas Kaiken is committed to sustainable viticulture practices, including the use of cover crops, drip irrigation, and organic fertilizers. The winery also has a focus on social responsibility and has implemented programs to support local communities and promote education and cultural heritage preservation.
