Patero wine: the most ours wine

The patero wine, characteristic of northern Argentina, is our oldest and most traditional wine. Do you want to know what this is?

vino patero

The patero  wine  is undoubtedly an  Argentine registered trademark . It is the most natural of all and, even today, its artisanal elaboration process is maintained. Its name leaves no room for doubt: to produce it the “paws” are used. That is, they step on the  grapes  with their feet, literally.

Initially, the technique was reduced to stepping the  grapes  on cow leather and collecting the resulting must. This was deposited in clay jars to give rise to fermentation. Finally, magic: the natural juice of the grapes was transformed into the precious  wine . There were no leaks, only the decantation itself. Over time, animal leather was replaced by llevers and boots began to be used. But patero wine still maintains its method and its validity.
