2 Ernesto Catena is a 4th Generation winegrower. Part of one of Argentina most traditional wine families. Lived and travelled around the world for many years. Bachelor in Computer Science and Economy, Master in Design in Milan, and a degree in History in London. Passionate for animals and nature. Tireless reader, painter, art collector: an spectator of beauty, dead or alive Most of the times beauty is my guiding star Dont just make the wine, be the wine Who is Ernesto Catena?

3 While being President of one of Arg largest wineries, Ernesto felt the need of a Paradigm Shift (a change of basic assumptions) and decided to start producing small volume of wines under 3 new premises: Focus in growing high quality grapes in the most natural way possible. Search for a different style in the wines, that would reflect his personality. Create very strong branding concepts, that consumers would feel indentified with. Most of the grape comes from Finca La Intensidad, Ernesto Catenas vineyard, located in Vistaflores. Ernesto Catena Vineyards (ECV) - The birth of a Renaissance enterprise -

4 FINCA LA INTENSIDAD the prettiest biodynamic vineyard in South America. Located in the heart of Vistaflores (1090msnm) Only half of the property planted, to preserve a balance with the ecosystem. Planted with: Malbec, Cab Sauv, Syrah, Cab Franc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

7 Winemaking ECV Winery is a project of two stages: 1: The Champagnerie (completed) 2: The winery (under design) Today we crash our grapes in a winery across the street. We select the best wines and sell the remaining. Our winemaker is Bernardo Bossi.

9 The Incas had the tradition of burying things as a gift to Gods to keep land fertile. To continue the tradition, we bury bottles of wines in our vineyard to sleep a Siesta, and keep our vineyard fertile. Siesta wines are our best expression of varietal character. Siesta wines are our tribute to the Inca civilization and their respect for the land.

10 Tahuan is an abbreviation from Tahuantinsuyu which means in quechua (Inca language) the four lands united. we have 4 varietals, corresponding to the 4 regions of the Tahuantinsuyu, the Inca empire of the Andes. Each of the varietals are made to best express the unique varietal character of the 4 widest planted grapes in Mendoza. Tahuan wines is our way to express the varietal diversity of Mendozas terroir

11 Padrillo means Stallion in Spanish. The wines are inspired in Ernesto Catenas passion for the horse. Man's conquest of the horse signifies his conquest of Nature, and the responsibility this conquest carries within. Mainly, to take care of our subject, Nature. Ernesto is an avid horseman, polo player and breeder of polo horses. Padrillos wines express the wild spirit of Argentinas true varietals. MALBEC TORRONTES
