This passion for vineyards and winemaking began in the 1960s with Juan Sánchez as a family pioneer in vineyard planting, who was also one of the members of the well-known Luján Cooperative, which made wines in MENDOZA. In the 1980s, the second generation began to take over: the three brothers of the family, Federico, Juan Carlos and Gabriel Sánchez. They decided to continue with the plantation of vineyards, to later found, in 2004, Bodegas y Viñedos Sánchez S.A. where currently the third generation is working, in commercial and administrative area.
Today, Bodegas y Viñedos Sánchez has two wine brands: Milagro Mendocino (born in 2004) and Jaque Mate (2018). Both are commercialized in the national and international market, as well as the sale of bulk wines.
The winery is built with a modern structure and currently has a capacity of 1,540,000 liters in stainless steel tanks of different capacities to judiciously distribute the best products. This volume is distributed in 70 tanks of: 33, 55, 75, 100, 150, 200, 230, 250, 275, 460, 550 Hl.
We currently have more than 30 French and American oak barrels, soft and medium toasts, located in a specific sector with temperature control. For the reception and grinding we have stainless steel machinery, selection belt, grinder and screw pump.
The main refrigeration equipment has a capacity of 396,830 BTU/hour. The establishment prioritizes the quality of the product from its beginning; it thus adopts the milling of the pre-cooled grapes. There is also a hot water generator to respond to specific demands. All the tanks are connected to the cold-heat circuits so that each one independently can have one or another system. A 100 Hl pneumatic press and various conveyor belts are available to complete the process.
