Viña Cobos, Felino wines
Viña Cobos is the inspired vision of three dreamers who one day undertook the challenge of producing great Argentine red wine that would be on par with the best-known wines of the world. From that moment, Andrea Marchiori, Luis Barraud and Paul Hobbs started to make noble wines of superior quality, placing Malbec and Argentina on stage with the world’s greatest wine producers. Felino wines stand out because of their freshness and fruity expression. Elaborated with grapes sourced from different regions in Mendoza, each of these varietal wines highlight their typical richness: Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay.
