Named after its founder, Humberto Canale Estate was established in 1909 in the upper valley of Rio Negro, Patagonia, one of the world's most southerly wine growing regions. Humberto played a fundamental role in the development of viticulture in the region, helping government officials implement the area's first irrigation systems shortly after the conquest of the Patagonian Desert. Today operations are led by Humberto's nephew Guillermo Barzi, who is committed to respecting the same human and ethical values held by the company for more than five decades and crafts unique wines symbolic of the Patagonia region that are appreciated worldwide for their elegance, complexity and great aging potential.
