Since 1884, the wines of Don Miguel Gascón have been recognized for the rich, smooth flavors that come from Argentina's Mendoza wine region. High altitude vineyards situated along the Cordillera of the Andes Mountains produce full mature grapes for this classic Malbec.

Don Miguel Gascon sailed to Argentina from Aragon, Spain, at the age of 19 years, without a penny to his name. Four years later, the ingenious Don Miguel managed to buy 42 acres of land, plant vineyards and build a winery. Today the winery is owned by the Nicholas Catena family. In 1993, Nicolas Catena and a group of investors acquired a majority interest in Bodegas Escorihuela. In the tradition of ardent adventurer and founder, Catena and his partners have turned Bodegas Escorihuela into a Mecca of experimentation with food, art and wine. Bodegas Escorihuela is the home of Restaurant 1884, which has one of the best wine lists in Argentina and a changing menu created by the renowned chef Francis Mallmann.

Wine maker notes
By selecting grapes from vineyards at varying elevations throughout Mendoza’s high valleys, our winemakers achieve superb balance in the finished wine. The high altitude places the vineyards under intense sunlight, which translates into fruit with extraordinary flavor and aromatic expressions.

Food pairing
Gascon Malbec pairs well with grilled red meats, wild game, pasta dishes and chocolate molten dessert.

Producer
Today, the wines of Don Miguel Gascon are crafted in the City of Mendoza at the same winery that was built by the Spanish visionary whose name bears it. Begun in 1884, the winery is an historic landmark in the history of Argentine winemaking, yet it houses some of the most advanced winemaking technology in the world. Our winery is also the home of 1884, an award-winning restaurant operated by world renowned Chef Francis Mallman.
