A good piece of history

FOUNDERS

In 1919, a 14-year-old boy arrived alone by boat at the port of Buenos Aires. He was the Italian José Eduardo Crotta, who had been born on June 1, 1905, in the region of Lombardy, in a village called "La Crotta",, in the province of Pavia.

His story is the same story of thousands of Italian immigrants who arrived in Argentina at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries, many of whom wrote the history of Argentine wine.

It was in the 30’s, and as part of a project he designed with his wife, the Austrian Wilhelmina Ritz -who in Argentina was called Guillermina, -, when José Eduardo decided to set up his own winery in the capital of Argentine wine: the province of Mendoza.

Their grandchildren Claudia, Carlos y Carolina continue producing wines of the highest quality, upholding the tradition and prestige which has been achieved during long years of effort and dedication.

Today the winery remains renowned for its fortified wines such as Moscato, Oporto, Marsala, and its Mistelas. but also for its still wines, both in their varietal and bi-varietal lines. Its Late Harvest wine is a tribute to the golden autumn afternoons of Mendoza.

"Today we can assert that we who make the wines of Bodegas y Viñedos Crotta, Crotta hold in our spirit a great pride for being part of the history of our National Drink".

FUNDADORES
WINE-GROWING TRADITIONS

In Finca Ramblón, one of our estates in the locality of San Martín, a procession around the vineyards has for a long time been celebrated at the beginning of the harvest season.

Vine workers pray to the Carrodilla Virgin, Patron Saint of the vineyards and wine, and offer her the first grape bunches of every harvest.

FUNDADORES
DIONIZIJ’S BARREL

At the beginning of the 20th century, the Bajda family, a generation of coopers coming from Slovenia, settled in Mendoza and became the most important manufacturers of wooden vats, casks and barrels.

This oak barrel, the size of one the coopers, took its name from Dionizij -Dionysius in Slovenian. It was specially made for Bodegas Crotta, and it still remains as a precious piece of wine museography.

FUNDADORES
THE STORY OF MOSCATO THAT YOU WILL LOVE

Although pizza and Moscato are traditionally Italian, in Italy they are not paired. In Argentina, however, this was made possible at the beginning of the 20th century by a visionary immigrant: Don José Eduardo Crotta.

In the 30’s, our winery’s founder thought about selling his Moscato by the glass to his main customers: the pizza shops of Buenos Aires. In this way, those who liked eating pizza after going to the cinemas or to the theatres on Corrientes Avenue, or even after going to the football fields, accompanied their traditional pizza portion with a glass of Moscato wine.

The Moscato, pizza and fainá pairing became then very popular. Today, just as it has happened with its bar culture, the City of Buenos Aires has also become worldwide known for its tours to the most remarkable pizza shops, where Crotta wines have taken on center stage.

OUR EMBLEMATIC WINE TOWER

When arriving at the Province of Mendoza from the East, the winery is easily identifiable from the road due to its 33-meter tower which hosts wine pools with a storage capacity of 450,000 liters.

This state-of-the-art engineering work, designed by Carlos Leopoldo Crotta, of the second family generation, was done in the 60’s.

LA TORRE DEL VINO
INFRASTRUCTURE

We have a storage capacity of 18 million liters. Both grape-growing ad wine-making are always carried out under strict quality controls for the supply of the food industry. Over 100,000 quintals of grapes are processed in our winery every year.

The original 1933 structure of the winery has two naves, one of them meant for elaboration and storage and the other one for the bottling processes.

There is also a tasting room where visitors can enjoy our wines. Bodegas Crotta wines are exported to the five continents.

OUR VINEYARDS
FINCA RAMBLÓN

One of our vineyards is located in the district of Ramblón, in San Martín. It comprises 210 hectares planted with over 80-year-old vine stocks, among which we can find the sweet pink muscatel that is used to make our emblematic Moscato wine.

VALLE VERDE

The other 100-hectare vineyards are also found east of Mendoza, in the locality of Chapanay, on the banks of the Mendoza River. In this estate called Valle Verde we have Malbec, Syrah, Tempranillo and Chardonnay

OUR MAIN ACHIEVEMENT

Childcare service during the vintage season
Our "Centro Educativo de Vendimia José Eduardo Crotta" (Vintage Education Center) -an initiative of Carlos Crotta (Jr.)- has been in operation in Finca Ramblón since 2005.

TRABAJAMOS CON LOS EMPLEADOS DE NUESTRA PROPIEDAD RURAL Y NUESTRO PRINCIPAL
WE WORK WITH OUR RURAL PROPERTY EMPLOYEES AND OUR MAIN GOAL IS TO ERADICATE CHILD LABOR.

The group of Child Labor we consider is that of the families who perform rural work. More specifically, seasonal workers who settle in our property to harvest the grapes.

OUR GOALS

. To promote a cultural change among grape harvesters, abolishing child labor.
. To contribute to the improvement of the educational quality of our harvesters’ children.
. To reduce the risk of work accidents among both adults and children.
. To safeguard harmony between the Company’s and the seasonal workers’ cultures.

OUR ASSESSMENT

. Better educational quality.
. Higher performance from workers.
. Adoption of hygiene habits among children under 5.
. Employee loyalty.
. No lack of labor force.
. Zero risk in accidents involving children.
. Increased profitability both for the employer and the employee.

About our sustainability over time...

. We seek to ensure equal rights and opportunities for all children.
. We see it as a long-term social investment.
. We intend much more than eradicating a practice; we want educational quality for our employees’ children.

WE BELIEVE THAT CHILDHOOD IS SOCIETY’S GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO IMPROVE ITSELF,
AND THIS HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED ACROSS GENERATIONS.
