Astica is a dependable source of high-quality Argentine wines from the Cuyo region of Mendoza. Benefiting from the high altitude, abundant sunshine, little rainfall, hot days and cool nights of the region, Astica wines are fruit-driven and easy to drink. The Astica range includes internationally popular varietals such as Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as Torrontes and Malbec, Argentina's signature white and red grapes.
Vibrant, eye-catching packaging fits with the meaning of Astica, which is an indigenous word for 'flower' in Argentina. The wines are produced from hand-picked fruit in the Cuyo Valley and vinified in a fresh, fruit-forward style.
