Bodegas Caro is a renowned winery located in Mendoza, Argentina. It is a joint venture between two well-established wine families: Argentina’s Catena family and France’s Rothschild family. The winery was established in 1999 to combine the expertise and traditions of these two families to produce high-quality wines that reflect the unique terroir of Mendoza.
The Catena family is known for their pioneering work in elevating the quality of Argentine wines and promoting Malbec as the country’s signature grape variety. On the other hand, the Rothschild family has a long history in the wine industry and is associated with some of the world’s most prestigious wineries, including Château Lafite Rothschild in Bordeaux.
The winery is in the Mendoza region, considered one of Argentina’s premier wine-producing areas. Mendoza is known for its high-altitude vineyards, which benefit from optimal sunlight exposure and temperature variations that contribute to the developing of complex flavours in the grapes.
Bodegas Caro focuses on producing limited quantities of premium wines that blend traditional Argentine varietals, particularly Malbec, with classic Bordeaux varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This blending of Old and New World winemaking traditions is intended to create wines that showcase both the unique characteristics of the Mendoza terroir and the elegance and structure associated with Bordeaux-style wines.
Some flagship wines Bodegas Caro produced include “Caro,” a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, and “Amancaya,” a combination of Malbec and Cabernet Franc. These wines often receive high praise from critics and enthusiasts for their balance, complexity, and age-worthy potential.
