Puramun Wines In Chicago with José “Pepe” Galante
Tastes of Argentina with Puramun Wines
Legendary Winemaker José “Pepe” Galante
Join Wine Channel TV wine celebrity Jessica Altieri with Puramun Winery and José “Pepe” Galante for a featured Tastes of Argentina Event at Formento’s in Chicago. Jose “Pepe” Galante is widely considered the most important winemaker in Argentina’s history. Chief winemaker at Catena Zapata from 1976 until 2010, Pepe showed the world that Argentina could make world-class wines.
Puramun is Pepe’s first-ever personal project owned by his family. Puramun means “harvest” and “search” in Mendoza’s indigenous Mapuche language. Each Puramun is a new challenge. A time for searching and finding. Nothing is the same, everything changes: the climate, the soil, the grapes, and even ourselves. Year after year we trek a new road, a labyrinth of grapevines that express through their precious fruit our devotion to the Valle de Uco terroir. Each Puramun bottle is the result of this passionate and endless search.
“Pepe believes that the Valle de Uco is Argentina’s best terroir to produce high quality wines. Each bottle of Puramun expresses our admiration for the Valle de Uco, a place that surprises with its diversity of soil, climate, and thermal amplitude. Pepe picks grapes from different places along the Valle de Uco, that’s the reason why Puramun is the result of different smaller terroirs that ends up in a complex wine. Puramun is a faithful expression of the Valle de Uco, and our tribute to it.” – from Puramun Winery.
