CASARENA (translated as “Sand House”) Winery & Vineyards is named after the earth-toned stucco exterior of the winery located on Brandsen Street, in the heart of Perdriel district in Luje1n de Cuyo region. Approximately 20 minutes away from downtown Mendoza, this viticulture project began in 2007 after the rebuilding of a century-old family winery. The old building, where CASARENA stands, was fully renovated for the operation of a state-of-the-art winery, which combines the best of traditional processes with the latest technological innovations. At the moment, it has a capacity of 650,000 liters in concrete tanks coated with epoxy and equipped with a heating and cooling system, which helps preventing temperature changes during the fermentation process. The winery has also 175,000 liters capacity in Stainless Steel Tanks and a special room designed to hold 400 oak barrels, with controlled temperature and humidity system.
