In 2005, the Bonnie family, owner of the renowned Château Malartic-Lagravière (Grand Cru Classé de Graves) and of the Château Gazin Rocquencourt (Pessac-Léognan), decided to leave France in search for new horizons in the world of wine. It all began with the acquisition, along with their partners, of a single 130-hectares (321 acres) block of land in the heart of the Uco Valley, to the south of the city of Mendoza. That is where Bodega DiamAndes was born, as a member of the prestigious Clos de los Siete group.More about the Winery
Reviews of 2012 Diamandes de Uco Viognier
I like it with the meat we ate.
My best friend had tried it and she recommended it to me.
To me, this 2016 seemed more yellow than other vintages. Very aromatic, with a predominance of bananas and lychees. I don't know how to describe it, but to me it had a good taste.
The best pairing would have been fish.
I drank it with someone special.
