La Posta is a collaborative wine venture between Laura Catena and winemaker Luis Reginato. Born in Mendoza, Laura belongs to a pioneering winemaking family. She has played a leading role in establishing her father Nicolas’s winery, Catena Zapata, as one of the leading producers of Argentine wine. An incredibly driven person, Laura runs 3 separate wine ventures, all while living in San Francisco, where she is employed as an ER doctor. For La Posta, Laura and Luis wanted to produce wines made from grapes sourced from single vineyard sites. The name of the winery means “the tavern”, a reference to the place where grape growers and vignerons meet.
The Cocina Blend is made from a cuvée of 60% Malbec, 25% Bonarda, and 15% Syrah. Purplish red in colour, this medium bodied wine shows notes of plump red cherries, blackberries, raspberries, and a touch of vanilla. A great barbecue wine!
