FROM THE ORIGIN
The grapes chosen for the drying processing come from our own farms in 9 de Julio, Sarmiento, 25 de Mayo and Caucete districts, what enables us to control the quality of the product from the early stages of the cropping cycle.
The varieties implanted are: sultana, flame, arizul, fiesta and superior.
All our farms are worked by a specialized staff and under the advice of an agronomist. Each property has a drip irrigation system that covers the complete extension of land.
THE BEST CONDITIONS
Meló e Hijos is situated in Santa Lucia, in the province of San Juan in Argentina.
Our province is known for its hot and dry weather which is ideal for this business; we have high temperatures around 45°C in summer and temperatures as low as -6°C in winter, with an average annual rainfall of 92mm.
These features make our province the ideal setting for the growing and drying of grapes. Moreover, 95% of the grape production in Argentina comes from San Juan due to thaw from the Andes.
