Our Story

Luca makes history with groundbraking work in cultivating small-grower relations, sourcing premier old-vine Malbec and mastering non Malbec varietals.
Luca was created by wine pioneer Laura Catena and focuses on small quantities, artisan quality and wines that are true to their individual terroirs. These wines are the ultimate expression of rigorous vineyard management and high-quality.

Luca Malbec has made Wine Spectator’s Top 100 List twice for a reason – it is quintessentially expressive of Mendoza and impossible to replicate.

Luca was born out of Laura Catena’s vision of creating a new breed of Argentine wines: small quantities, artisan quality, and true to their individual terroirs. She is a pioneer in Mendoza for working closely with small growers to grow very high-quality grapes from some of Argentina’s best old-vine, low-yield, high elevation vineyards. Luca is named after Laura Catena’s first son and it symbolizes her love for her family. The family crest that appears on the label belongs to her husband Dan McDermott’s family.
