Don Manuel Villafane Gran Reserva Icono

Beautiful wine at a great price, the flagship wine from Don Manuel Villafane. It's a blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon from 90 year old vines, aged in new French oak for 18 months. It's elegant and sophisticated rather than powerful, with persistent fruit flavours and great overall balance.

Great presentation in a heavy bottle too.

Don Manuel Villafane Gran Reserva Icon, as the name suggests, is the premier wine from this winery.

Don Manuel Villafañe is a winery owned by Sr. Tomás Machado Villafañe and his family. The winery is focused on the elaboration of grapes harvested from small, exclusive vineyards.

The Villafañe family has been in the wine business for almost 400 years. In 1611 Don Manuell Villafañe came to Argentina from Spain as a soldier to fight against the English pirates who attacked Spanish ships. Later he settled in South America as a farmer, and became a pioneer of winemaking in Argentina for being one of the first people to plant vines on that land. The objective at that time was to provide wine for the priests of the church and much later for the settlers, who came to the ‘New Word’ to take advantage of the new opportunities.

The Don Manuel Villafañe winery was re-developed in the legacy of Don Manuel Villafane to deliver high quality wines to the world market.
