WINE MAKER | Pablo Richardi

Pablo Richardi grew up in a winemaking family from the Mendoza region in Argentina. After an incredible journey, his family now owns the prestigious Richardi, Fazzio & Menegazzo Estate. Aged 39, Pablo graduated from the University of Don Bosco in oenology in 2003. He then served successively as technical director at Bodega Salentein, then head technical director at Bodega Poesia, before taking on the management of Flechas de Los Andes in 2004. Curious and open-minded, Pablo has also worked at several large Bordeaux estates, including Château Cos l’Eglise in Pomerol, Château Dassault in Saint-Emilion and Château Clarke in Listrac, and has even detoured around the Napa Valley at the Quintessa Estate.

THE WINERY

THE WINERY

Located 120 kilometers south of Mendoza, Argentina, near the village of Vista Flores, the Flechas de Los Andes vineyard now occupies more than 100 hectares in the Andes foothills. The first vines were planted in 1999 and are quite dense for Argentina (5,500 vines per hectare). The Malbec grapes thrive on these ideal plots of rocks, granite pebbles and alluvial gravels perched at 1,100 meters above sea level. They are joined by plots of Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The hot, dry climate is characterized as semiarid continental and features pronounced temperature fluctuations between day and night and across seasons. These midaltitude conditions are highly conducive to the ripening of black grapes and, more particularly, of Malbec.
