Finca La Celia

We laid the keystone, planting the first Malbec in the Uco Valley

Every Pioneer leaves a unique legacy and Eugenio Bustos was one of them. He arrived in the Uco Valley and planted the first Malbec wine from France which he received as payment for his best horses. Named in honour of his daughter, that is how Finca La Celia was born in 1890.
