Bodegas CARO is a world-renowned winery, born out of the collaboration between two prominent wine families: the Catena family of Argentina, led by Nicolás Catena, and the Rothschild family of France, represented by Baron Eric de Rothschild. Since its establishment in 1999, Bodegas CARO has been distinguished by its commitment to excellence and the high profile of its wines, solidifying its position as one of the most prestigious brands in the world.
The story of Bodegas CARO is a fascinating combination of the Argentine winemaking tradition of the Catena family, with their pioneering knowledge and cultivation of the country’s flagship grape variety, Malbec, and the expertise of the Rothschild family, who have been producing high-quality wines for over 250 years. The winery is located in the heart of Altamira, in Mendoza, at the foothills of the Andes, one of the most renowned regions for quality wine production in Argentina. From its inception, Bodegas CARO has stood out for the quality and uniqueness of its wines, a result of the fusion of French and Argentine winemaking techniques and knowledge. Among its most notable wines is “CARO” (Catena-Rothschild), an exceptional quality wine that combines the best Malbec grapes from Argentina with Cabernet Sauvignon.
“CARO” is made from selected grapes from the most distinguished vineyards in both regions and undergoes a rigorous winemaking process that includes fermentation in French oak barrels and aging in new French oak barrels for 18 months. The result is a wine with a distinct character, an elegant and complex structure, and notes of red fruits, spices, and chocolate.
Bodegas CARO has established itself as one of the most recognized and esteemed brands among wine experts and enthusiasts. Its focus on quality, innovation, and respect for the environment has allowed it to position itself as a leading winery in Argentina and one of the most prominent worldwide.
