Bodega Vistalba Review
During his seven years as president of Salentein, a Dutch company with three bodegas, Carlos Pulenta increased the number of European varietals, installed the latest technology, and put Salentein wine on the tables of the world. He left in 2004 and returned to his family's land in Vistalba. Surrounded by vineyards, the courtyard entrance frames a perfect view of the 4,900-meter (16,000-foot) Cordón de Plata mountain range. Underground in the bodega, a wall exposes the tumbled rocks and dirt to show you the soil structure that Malbec thrives in. Pulenta and his team of family advisers and oenologists have created three blends using Malbec, Cabernet, Merlot, and Bonarda, plus a delicate Sauvignon Blanc and a Torrontés from their vineyard in Salta, and a Semillon that begs to be tried. Day tours include lunch at La Bourgogne, the award-winning restaurant. The light stone and polished concrete complex houses two comfortable rooms for overnight guests.
