Sol de Mayo translates as the “Sun of May” and is a representation of the Inca sun god Inti, one of the national emblems of Argentina. The symbol is traced back to the Argentine Revolution of May 1810, when, as the Spanish were overthrown, the sun broke through the clouds. Sol de Mayo wines are sourced from Mendoza region of Argentina, high up in the Andes Mountains. The winery encompasses 225 hectares of vineyards with old vines dating back 60 years. Due to the high altitude and low humidity in this region these vineyards rarely encounter any problems with pests or disease, as a result little or no pesticides are used in cultivation. Modern winemaking techniques and strict temperature controls are utilised to ensure that the wines display true varietal typicity.
