Bodega & Cavas de Weinert was founded by Don Bernardo Weinert, a Brasilian of German origins, in Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza. Fascinated with the wine world, Don Bernardo Weinert decided to mount his own winery in Argentina with an unconditional approach: to produce high quality wines.
Before getting involved in such task, he carried out an extensive study of Mendoza´s weather, soil and vines; and he found in Luján de Cuyo de perfect place for his business. After a difficult process of restoration in the building acquired in 1974, he brought the last technology of that period for the wine production and he joined Rául de la Mota, who was known worldwide for being the father of modern winemaking, and who was also named the best oenologist of the 20th century in Argentina.
After his first commercial harvest in 1976, he created, in 1977, Weinert Malbec Estrella 1977, a wine renowned by prestigious wine experts all over the world.
In 1996, Hubert Weber, a Swiss oenologist became part of the winery. With only 27 years old he became Bodega & Cavas de Weinert main and only oenologist till present.
In the year 2012, the businessman Miguel Ángel López became Weinert’s parter, which permitted a greater commercial expansion widely.
