• Uco Valley – Situated at the foot of the Andres, the Uco Valley has a distinct microclimate, with a vast temperature range and complex soils. The resulting wines are intense and refined. Here Casir dos Santos has Cabernet Sauvignon in Gualtallary, Malbec vines in Vistaflores, and a mix of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon vines (including 50 year old plants) in San Carlos.

• Lujan de Cuyo – Argentina’s oldest viticultural area. Casir dos Santos has a 10-year-old vineyard in Agrelo, located 3,100 feet above sea level.

• Maipu – Casir dos Santos’ Lunlunta vineyard is 13 hectares of old vine Malbec, with some over 100 years old.

Casir dos Santos wines are made by head winemaker Fernando Ottaviani and world-renowned winemaker and consultant Didier Debono. Didier consults and makes wine for several wineries in Argentina and Chile, including Kysela's Chilean producer, Siegel Family Wines.
