“We really put a lot of emphasis on creating a wine with good typicity, and one that wine drinkers will enjoy for a variety of different occasions. This award is really a validation of our winemaking expertise.” - Andres Nanni, owner of Bodega El Transito
The roots of the El Transito winemaking tradition stretch back to the end of the nineteenth century when the current owner\'s great grandfather, Pietro Marini, emigrated from Italy and settled in Cafayate. The tradition has been handed down and is now in its fourth generation, in the very capable hands of vintner Andrés Nanni.
Rick and Theresa Kaiser, both CPAs started Kaiser Family Winery in 2013. They first made wine in 2002. Over those initial 11 years of trial and error, they learned how to craft wines that focus on freshness, consistency, and purity.
