About Pascual Toso Winery
When in the mid-1880s Pascual Toso set out towards Argentina from its hometown, Canale D’Alba, in Piamonte, Italy, he could not have imagined that he would become the founder of a winery, which is today one of the oldest and most prestigious wineries in Argentina.
When he arrived in Argentina, he settled in Mendoza. As he had been closely involved in the development of his family wine business in Piedmont, he promptly saw the promising future for winemaking in the region and decided to use his expertise. Thus, in 1890, Pascual Toso established his first winery.
At the beginning of the 20th century, he decided to expand his business and acquired vineyards in Maipú. At his estate “Las Barrancas”, he built another winery, “Las Barrancas” (small Canyon) which is dedicated to producing and growing the finest grapes.
The most important is our passion for the wines and the quality we try to achieve. Since 1890, Bodegas y Viñedos Pascual Toso has become one of the most exciting and promising Argentine wineries and remains faithful to its principles: Tradition, Authenticity, and Innovation.
The Wines We Will Feature at the International Festival Tasting Room
Pascual Toso Sparkling Brut Rosé – Salmon-pink color, with fine, persistent, and delicate bubbles. Aromas evoke green apple, peach and compote. The palate is well-balanced, creamy and complex. There is a bright acidity and a pronounced crispness.
Pascual Toso Sparkling Brut – This sparkling wine is bright and clear with a touch of pale yellow. The aroma displays a bouquet of perfectly balanced yeasts with the Chardonnay used for this basic wine. Over time, this evolves and gains complexity in the bottle. The aroma is complemented by the flavor and has a gentle, soft, fresh taste which makes it enjoyable to drink.
Pascual Toso Sauvignon Blanc – (2012 vintage) “Mild lemon and apple aromas are compromised by a harsh, stalky element. The mouthfeel is basic and spritzy, while generic apple and green melon flavors end in tropical sweetness.” – Wine Enthusiast
