The most sustainable winery

A Mendoza winery won the highest recognition for Sustainable Practices in the world competition of wineries that venture into tourism.

Wine tourism or wine tourism is a very well worked practice in Mendoza. Brazilians, Chileans, Americans and  foreigners  of the farthest nationalities are supersatisfied every time they visit a local winery. Thus,  many Mendoza wineries stand out in the different categories in which the awards for wine tourism are divided.  

 Superuco , the winery of the Michelini brothers, won the Gold Award in Sustainable Practices, awarded by a renowned international jury for the ranking of Best Of Wine Tourism 2021. With its farm in Los Chacayes  in Tunuyán , Superuco was recognized by the Annual Assembly of the Grand Capitals of Wine, which chose only one Gold per Wine Capital, from among all the award-winning categories, and that award raises her to a global winner of her category.

Mendoza is part of the Great Wine Capitals.  It is a global network of cities located in both hemispheres that share economic and cultural values: to be internationally recognized wine regions.  It includes the new and old world of wine, and its goal is to promote tourism, culture and trade between the different cities and regions of Adelaide (Australia) Bilbao and Rioja (Spain), Cape Town and Cape Winelands (South Africa), Bordeaux (France), Lausanne (Switzerland), Mainz and Rheinhessen (Germany), Mendoza (Argentina), Porto (Portugal), San Francisco and Napa Valley (United States), Valparaiso and Casablanca ( Chile ) and Verona (Italy).

The winning winery hosted Germán Martitegui, in the project he carried out during the last two summers,  when the renowned chef moved all his restaurant and the TEGUI team to the vineyards of Superuco.
