The Pulenta family has been a prominent and respected force in Argentine viticulture for three generations.
Sons of well-known winegrower Antonio Pulenta, and descendants of Italian immigrants, Eduardo and Hugo Pulenta founded Pulenta Estate in 2002. The vineyards are estate-owned and farmed for high quality and limited yields.
The children of the winemaker Antonio Pulenta and descendants of Italian immigrants, Eduardo and Hugo Pulenta gave life to Pulenta Estate in 2002, bringing experience and more qualified workforce.
Pulenta enjoys excellent climate conditions and a fantastic panoramic aspect from up to 980 metres above sea level. Irrigation comes from melted water from the Andes Mountains, and the whole process is de facto organic!
The Pulenta family make excellent Malbec, increasingly recognised as Argentina's signature grape variety, enhancing its natural exuberant fruitiness with discipline and structure.

The tradition, wisdom and experience of the family, forged during the 100 years since the arrival of Angelo Polenta and Palmina Spinssanti to Argentina, now live in Pulenta Estate. http://www.pulentaestate.com/actualidad.php
The brothers' philosophy is expressed thus: "Making a great wine is an act of generosity, considering always the one who will taste it. Our mission is to produce limited series of great wines, proudly made in Argentina."
