Jose “Pepe” Galante is widely considered the most important winemaker in Argentina’s history. Chief winemaker at Catena Zapata from 1976 until 2010, Pepe showed the world that Argentina could make world-class wines. Founded in 2010, Puramun is Pepe’s first-ever personal project owned by his family.
Puramun means “harvest” and “search” in Mendoza’s indigenous Mapuche language. Each Puramun is a new challenge. A time for searching and finding. Nothing is the same, everything changes: the climate, the soil, the grapes, and even us. Year after year we trek a new road, in search of the perfect grapes. Our label, a labyrinth of grapevines expresses this search, and through their precious fruit, our devotion to the Valle de Uco terroir. Each Puramun bottle is the result of this passionate and endless search.
