Dona Silvina

The winery Bodegas Krontiras began in 2003 and refers to the greek born Mr. Constantinos Krontiras family. The label name of Dona Silvi- na is in honor of his Argentine wife who has overseen the construction of the wine design of the labels. Constantinos passion for wine led him back to his wife’s birthplace in Mendoza and he started in 2003 when he acquired Mt Tupungato Elev 21,500' 2 vineyards; an 8 hectare, 120 year old vineyard in the Lunlunta, Perdriel sub-region of Lujan de Cuyo and then an 18 hectare vineyard which he planted in Villa Seca, Maipu. This certified or- ganic and soon to be Demeter certified biodynamic property embraces wine as a living system. The winery was built so that it works in an eco-friendly way and fulfills Bodegas Krontiras main rule: to respect Nature from the vineyards to the final product.

The current total production of the winery is under 2500cs with four wines currently being produced: Rosado, Fresh Malbec, Classic Malbec, and Reserva Malbec. The wines are all hand harvested according Bio-dynamic philosophy using only native Yeast, and hand made by their winemaker Soledad Valdes.
