"Atamisque", an aboriginal shrub that grows naturally in the surroundings, gave rise to the name of the farm where the winery is located. "Uco" was an Indian chief, from the tribe of the Millcayak Huarpes, inhabitants of this valley centuries ago. It was only around 1491-1493 that the Incas arrived from Peru. In 1608 the Jesuits settled in Mendoza and in 1658 they founded a rural property in the Uco Valley; the San José ranch, which gave rise to the town and the Atamisque ranch created later. This property owned 19,000 hectares; being divided at the end of the XIX century. The ranch had different owners who succeeded one another, until it was acquired by a Frenchman, John Du Monceau, who fell in love with the place and decided to settle there to live. His wife, Chantal, having had a winemaker grandfather in Bourgogne, France, supports the idea of building a winery on the property; This is how «Bodega Atamisque» was born, which is inspired by the original name of the place, with the first harvest taking place in March 2007.
