Codorníu, a Spanish group that produces quality wines and cavas, is one of the leaders in the international market and following its philosophy of being present in the most prestigious wine regions, it chose Argentina as an emerging country in the production of quality wines. "Seventh" is the name of this winery. It responds to different reasons, one of them is that it is the seventh winery of the Group, it is the lucky number in Latin culture and it is the number of the day of rest, of rest.
In December 1999, the winery bought 306 hectares of land in Agrelo, Mendoza, at the foot of the Andes mountain range. In March 2000 the planting of vineyards began, which use the assisted drip irrigation system. This technology allows precise control of soil moisture through sensors and its modification locally to each vine sector. Thanks to this control, it will be possible to apply the latest techniques to improve the quality of wine such as RDI (Regulated Deficit Irrigation) and PRD (Partial Root Drying) aimed at intensifying the taste of the wine. Modern sectoral fertigation methods are also applied to ensure that each plant receives adequate nutrition to maximize quality.
