Featured Winery for the Evening:
Bodega Familia Schroder
From Patagonia, «The land of hidden passion...Las Bodega Familia Schroeder» Familia Schroeder is located in San Patricio del Chañar Valley in Patagonia Argentina, at 39º South Latitude, 53 kilometers from Neuquen City. This is a new winemaking area in the country and the world. Patagonia has incomparable conditions that converge to make it a unique area to grow a wide variety of vines.
Patagonia is a land of extremes. Dry weather, bright skies, infinite horizons, rivers carrying prestine snowmelt water and frequent winds are some of the characteristics of the wild steppe of southern Argentina.
The winery's building lies on a gentle slope dominating the vineyards. Its architecture blends naturally with the surroundings while the installation's layout, taking advantage of the differences of height, allows a gravity flow winemaking.
The combination of outstanding growing conditions with state of the art facilities and an attitude of constant improvement to achieve excellence, gives origin to these magnificient wines.
