BACKGROUND

Fruit-friendly, youthful and dynamic, Callia produces a range of easy-drinking wines in the San Juan region of Argentina. Callia’s philosophy is to produce wines that inspires the consumer to find some "me" time; to take a break and reward themselves for all their daily efforts that propel them forward.

TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES

Bodegas Callia is situated in the Tulum Valley in Argentina’s province of San Juan. It is nestled between the Pie de Palo hills to the north and the Cerro Chico Del Zonsa to the south. Two finca estates encompass 700 acres of land: Finca Pie de Palo and Finca 9 De Julio. At 630 meters above sea level, the area is blessed by temperate climate, low rainfall and rich sandy alluvial and clay loam soil; the result is intense and fruity wines that reflect the rich terroir of this region.

WINEMAKING

The grapes are hand-harvested and immediately crushed and destemmed to preserve freshness and fruit character. The grapes undergo a cold maceration for 48 hours at a temperature of 54°F.

TASTING NOTES

Beautiful red fruits such as plums and cherries. The palate offers a balanced mouthfeel with flavors of redcurrant and black cherry supported by sweet, round tannins. It culminates in a long finish with notes of cloves and cinnamon. Excellent with barbecued dishes, burgers, spicy Mexican food such as quesadillas or tacos, roasted pork, duck, and honey baked ham.
