Laura Catena has a vision of creating a new breed of Argentina wines: small quantities, artisan quality, and true to their individual terroirs. Laura Catena is a fourth generation winemaker, daughter of Nicolas Catena, 2009 Decanter Man of the Year. In 1999, Laura Catena founded LUCA winery to explore the quality potential of small old vine family owned vineyards in the Uco Valley region of Mendoza. They are the ultimate expression of rigorous vineyard management, viticultural experimentation, strict irrigation controls, skilled winemaking, and a quest for quality at any cost.
