Twigs, Organic Wine from Argentina
Twigs is a wine made with Organic grapes that takes us deep into the heart of Argentina's wine country and is brought to you by Twig wines and—the Cecchins, a close-knit clan descending from five generations of viticulture. On their organic winery, tradition is rooted as deeply as the grapes that line the landscape. Their craft hasn't changed much in the 100 years since they migrated from Italy—horses still till the fields, the earth is cherished and everyone (even the little ones) pitches in. It's a way of life full of passion, purpose and natural beauty, and we're so thrilled to share a glimpse with you.
Twigs Wines, is now expanding and looking for distributors in the United States and also importers in Australia, India, China and Europe.
Bodega Familia Cecchin is a family owned company founded in 1959, nowadays headed by Alberto Cecchin from the third generation. Grapes have been always grown in a natural way without use of chemicals at all following the mind that nature gives all the tools to produce top quality wines.
The estate located in Maipu is the one where the company started and also the headquarter of the business as in this estate is the winery and tasting room for tourism, the offices, a restaurant named “A la sombra” ( in English “At the shade” www.grillalasombra.com.ar), the lodging and also the home where Alberto Cecchin and his 88 Uncle George live.
This estate is old as from 1923 with the curiosity that vineyards are so close among them that have to be worked with a horse because they were planted in that way as at that time there were not tractors. In this estate non a chemical was used ever, so the soil is totally alive and pure.
