Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina
Viña Las Perdices is located in the beautiful foothills of the Andes Mountains Range in Mendoza. Inspired by the strong work ethic of their father, Juan Muñoz López, brothers Carlos and Nicolás expanded the family business to add a winery to their vineyard in 2004.
History of Las Perdices
The winery is a family operation created by Juan Muñoz López, his wife Rosario, his sons Nicolas and Carlos, and his daughter Estela.
In 1952, Juan Muñoz López decided to leave his hometown of Andalucia, in southern Spain, and he and his family emigrated to Mendoza, Argentina, seeking new horizons.
Their shared passion for terroir and for growing high-quality grapes, and the challenge of making fine wine from their own vineyards motivated them to create a winery in this tradition.
