Dos Minas   Salta, Argentina  
  The dos minas (“two chicks” in Argentine slang) of the name are Lucía Romero, who runs Bodega El Porvenir de los Andes in Cafayate, Argentina, and Heather Willens, who came to Buenos Aires via California and has experience working with small wineries in Argentina. Both are champions of wines from the mystical desert landscapes of Cafayate, and both believe that Torrontés is a wonderfully aromatic, food-friendly wine that is among the best of what Argentina has to offer to the world. So they decided to come together to create this small project to showcase the rugged, high altitude Malbec and the elegant, balanced Torrontés that the best producers in Cafayate are capable of making.

Only 500 cases of 12 are made of the Torrontés, and only 1,000 cases of 12 of the Malbec. The vines for the Malbec are an average of 10 years old, and the Torrontés has grapes from 45-year old vines trained in the pergola system.
