It’s a real challenge to produce good

quality wines working under the

region’s extreme weather conditions.

The risk of late frost, the threat of the Zonda (strong warm winds) blowing during bud-break, hot days and rain falling during the beginning

of the harvest season make vineyard

management the key factor to producing

high quality wines at Valle de la Puerta.

Our Premium Extra Virgin olive oil is

composed of a blend of our finest varieties.

The Arbequina gives the blend intense

aromas of fruit, the Picual provides

freshness and spice while the Barnea

adds a touch of sweetness to the blend.

Finally, a little bit of Frantoio is added

to enhance the outstanding features of the

rest of the varieties. 

The Diaguita People


Our vineyards lie on land that hundreds of years ago was inhabited by the indigenous people of La Rioja, Argentina, The Diaguitas.

They worshipped the sun, thunder and lightning. It was the Incas who gave them the name Diaguita, that translates to “hill-people”.


The lack of rain, a constant everyday problem for the Diaguitas, is one of the key factors to producing the high quality wines that originate from this barren desert valley.


To honour the Diaguita heritage and culture we have adopted some of their symbols to represent our wines.

The Diaguitas believed the Condor was the closest creature to divinity and was considered a messenger of the spirits.

The puma in their culture, which we use in our logo and for the La Puerta labels, represents the supreme earthly being for its wisdom, strength and intelligence.
