Bodega Carelli has been owned by the Carelli Family since 1943, when
Santos Carelli Planted the first vineyards with high quality grapes for
winemaking. The third generation is currently participating in the
project, under the direction of Santo’s son, Enrique J. Carelli, who
continues incorporating new technology with the same entrepreneurial
spirit of the founder.
The winery comprises a late 19th century building, recently
restricted by the famous Bormida-Yanzon studio, maintaining it original
construction and country-house style, with high ceilings, wooden floors
and ornaments, and glass skylights, all of which create an intimate
environment for visitors.
The winery’s original capacity (890,000 liters) has increased steadily
up to 4,500,000 liters. Tradition and technology came together in
Carelli: the winery has oak barrels, small epoxy-coated concrete tanks,
as well as the latest temperature control technology. All of these
condition guarantee the traceability of every single wine lot.
The winery is placed in the province of Mendoza, within the wine
Argentina zone called Cuyo, at 34 degrees South Latitude, where the best
grapes are grown and harvested. At 2,100 ft. above the sea level. The
climate is like that of a dessert area: average temperature of 19 C with
wide daily thermal differences. 12/16 degrees at night up to 30/37
degrees during the day. Most of the year (300 days) the sky is quite
sunny, rains are scarce. Ground is irrigated by water coming from the
melting snow of the Andes Mountains.
