CLOS ULTRALOCAL TIERRA FIRME
It is a project of three friends who came together to create a small winery located in Mendoza, Argentina and we are dedicated to making wines from different places and places in Mendoza.
Their activity started in March 2010, and since then they have created various levels of work. First Clos Ultralocal which is focused on making terroir wines, wines whose characteristics are intimately related to the terroir that saw them born and where their hand is hardly noticeable.
Then they made Revolution Garage, to be able to have wines with more obvious fruit expression and freshness.
