In 1920, after selling his vineyards in his native country, Dante Robino, an Italian visionary, arrived in Argentina and selected the Mendoza region as the location for his project. There, in Lujan de Cuyo, he built the winery that still bears his name to this day.
Almost a century later and after twenty years in the hands of the Squassini family, Robino Bodegas & Vinedos is still a thriving family company. It is focused on the development and adaptation of technology, management and commercialisation techniques to the present times.
The vineyards are located in Lujan de Cuyo province of Mendoza at an altitude of 900 metres which is considered ideal for fine vine cultivation. This region obtained the first official Designation of Origin of Argentina. It is the land of the Malbec, an emblematic, noble grape variety originating from the South West of France, which has brought much fame to Argentina.
Imbued with the philosophy that good wine starts in the vineyard, Dante Robino dedicates most of its efforts to careful cultivation. The winery has a production capacity of 9,000,000 litres per year, with a modern storage section and a refridgeration centre to keep the wine at constant temperature. The winery has acquired the latest in technology and equipment which is perfectly complimented by the craftsmanship and dedication of the winemaking team.
