The Domain: Vaglio was established in 2013 and is owned and operated by founder José Lovaglio Balbo. He refurbished what was once a creamery into a small gravity fed concrete winery which is located in El Peral, Tupungato. He produces single vineyard wines, from different subregions and soil types. All the wines are vinified in the same way through minimal intervention and oak contact with the intent to highlight the different microclimates of Northern Mendoza. He is also the son of Susanna Balbo and a winemaker at the family winery. José continues to test boundaries and he recently planted a vineyard in La Carerra at 2200 meters above sea level.
