More info

Norton has 680 hectares of vineyard in production, minutely mapped and divided into parcels so that the individual varieties, clones and training methods suit the soil in each. Minimal treatments are used in the vineyards, which are run along virtually organic lines. All the grapes are hand picked in the first week of March from eighteen year-old vines planted on clay and gravel in the La Colonia vineyard.

The grapes were gently pressed in a pneumatic press and the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 15ºC. The wine was bottled early to maximize freshness and varietal expression.

In 1885, the Buenos Aires to Mendoza railway opened, cementing the significance of this emerging wine-growing region high in the Andean foothills. One visitor to Mendoza, an English engineer called Edmund Norton, was so struck by the beauty and potential he saw there that he established a winery bearing his name, and in 1895 planted the first vines in Mendoza’s Luján de Cuyo district.

Almost a century later, Gernot Langes-Swarovski was similarly struck by Mendoza and its vineyards; in 1989, he acquired Bodega Norton and set about transforming it into the world-renowned winery it is today. Both men rightly recognized the special nature of the area. At 900-1100 metres, the altitude moderates the temperature while exposing the vines to more ultraviolet light. The result is whites packed with vibrant flavour and good natural acidity, and well-structured, food-friendly reds.
