The Rutini family winemaking heritage began in the early 19th century in Le Marche, Italy, where Francisco Rutini started making wines for the citizens of his native town, Ascoli Piceno.
His Son Felipe Rutini emigrated to America to extend the winemaking tradition, and it was in Coquimbito, Maipu in the province of Mendoza, Argentina that he planted his first vines.
Towards the end of 1885, he began the construction of a winery which he names La Rural, with the motto "Labor et Perseveranti."
In 1925, the Rutini family planted the first vineyard in Tupungato. Named after one of Mendoza's mountain peaks, the Tupungato Valley was no more than a stop-over on the road to the mountains when the Rutini family began planting vines there.
In 1994 the winery was acquired by a group of investors, whose key members include Nicholas Catena and Jose Benegas Lynch, both from Mendoza and both from important winemaking backgrounds.
Rutini Wines has no available wines.
Winemaking at Rutini Wines is lead by Mariano Di Paola, who joined the winery in 1995. With over twenty years experience, Mariano is considered one of Argentina's top winemakers, and his talent, expertise and individual style are clearly expressed in each and every one of his wines.
