Basic Info

The story begins in Mendoza, Argentina, in a rock-strewn vineyard encircled by majestic weeping willow trees. With a perfect view of the Andes Mountains, we frequently gather here to delight in a mid-day or evening asado. After a long meal in the vineyard, accompanied by plenty of wine (and good conversation, of course), the Blackbird team (Michael Polenske, Paul Leary & Aaron Pott) started to discuss a "Northern Hemisphere (38° North) meets Southern Hemisphere (32° South)" winemaking partnership…and Reuerdo was born. Recuerdo Wines provides a one of a kind experience of Argentine wine through its winemaking team of Santiago Achaval (Achaval Ferrer) and Pablo Martorell (protégé of Michel Rolland), and it’s partnership with Blackbird Vineyards.
