Find us in the heart of the most important wine tourism area of ​​Mendoza
Our winery is located in Perdriel, Lujan de Cuyo, about 30 minutes away from the city of Mendoza.

Upon entering we are greeted by our Malbec vines. The winery itself has been built in a modern classical style, surrounded by gardens designed by a landscape artist using native plantings and having the Andes mountain range as a backdrop.

The winery boasts the latest technology in the production of wines of the highest quality: small-capacity stainless steel tanks and cement deposits, each with independent temperature controls, enable a specific and detailed monitoring of each one of our wines. Ageing takes place in barrels of French and American oak.



The winery also has equipment which receives, sorts and selects the incoming grapes and subsequently bottles, labels and also packs the wine for shipment, thus allowing us to control quality at each stage of the wine making process.

We have obtained ISO 22.000 certification for our production process, confirming our objective of delivering premium wines which reflect exactly what nature offers.

Our land

Vineyards – Lorca
The three vineyards which provide the grapes for Foster Lorca wines are located in the prestigious Valle de Uco, 100 kilometers (60 miles) south of the center of Mendoza. Valle de Uco is considered world-wide a prime grape-growing region due to its natural qualities. It lies 1,050 to 1,500 meters (3,400 to 4,900 feet) above sea level; the temperature may drop about 25º C (77º F) at night time and it offers an assortment of micro climates that allow the planting of different varieties – each with the specific conditions necessary to develop and reveal their essence.
Careful vineyard management and extensive green harvesting are applied, seeking to produce enough grapes per vine only for one or two bottles. The reduced number of grapes benefit from the concentration of tannins and vitality of the vines until the indicated time for the harvest. The drip irrigation installed uses water from the snow melt of the Andes, thus contributing natural nutrients and minerals to the soil and, ultimately, to the wines.
