Each harvest is a new challenge. A time for searching and finding. Nothing is the same, everything changes.
Year after year we trek a new road, a labyrinth of grapevines that express through their precious fruit our devotion to the Valle de Uco terroir.
We invite you to discover in each bottle of Puramun the result of a passionate and endless search.
I always loved to make wines with elegance and finesse, wines that are easy to drink, wines to enjoy.
God blessed us with the Malbec, we must work to make it a new classic of world viticulture.

Puramun - Valle de Uco, Argentina
Puramun (harvest in native Valle de Uco inhabitants language) is my and my family's tribute to Argentine wines.
Each harvest is a new challenge. A time for searching and finding. Nothing is the same, everything changes: the climate, the soil, the grapes, and even ourselves. Year after year we trek a new road, a labyrinth of grapevines that express through their precious fruit our devotion to the Valle de Uco terroir.
After forty years making internationally award-winning wines, we invite you to discover in each bottle of Puramun the result of this passionate and endless search.

History

Jose "Pepe" Galante is widely considered one of the most important winemakers in Argentina's history. As chief winemaker at Catena Zapata from 1976 until 2010, he was the pioneer of our winemaking revolution that is the reason why many people knows him as the "father of modern winemaking" in Argentina. Pepe showed the world that Argentina could make world-class wines. Pepe's travels throughout the United States, Spain and France taught him techniques and gave him the vision to apply to his own terroir.
Along the way, Pepe taught and mentored young winemakers who are now stepping up to spread this knowledge. Puramun is Pepe's first-ever personal project and shared with his family.

Terroir

Pepe believes that the Valle de Uco is Argentina's best terroir to produce high quality wines. Each bottle of Puramun expresses our admiration for the Valle de Uco, a place that surprises with its diversity of soil, climate, and thermal amplitude. Pepe picks grapes from different places along the Valle de Uco, that's the reason why Puramun is the result of different smaller terroirs that ends up in a complex wine. Puramun is a faithful expression of the Valle de Uco, and our tribute to it.
