WINERY INFORMATION: Lamadrid founder Guillermo García Lamadrid opened the door from his home in Cuba when he was a child. With the turbulence in Cuba at the time of the Revolution, his mother Matilde put him on an airplane to embark on a new life. Many more doors opened during his lifetime, all leading to Argentina and the building of the Lamadrid winery in one of the oldest and most premier growing regions in Argentina: Agrelo, “the land of Malbec,” Mendoza. Lamadrid’s mission is to be the best representation of its Agrelo terroir.
