RJ Vinedos is a family owned winery run by it’s founder, Raul Joffre, and his four daughters. The winery began in 1996 when Raul purchased a traditional cement tank winery in the Perdriel sub-region of Luján de Cuyo and a small vineyard in the Los Sauces sub-region of the Uco Valley. They now have 60 hectares in the Uco Valley as well as holdings in Alto Agrelo and up north in the Calchaquíes de Cafayate Valley, Salta.

The vineyards are all farmed with sustainable methods; no chemicals are used in both the vineyards and the winery. The winemaker Mariano Cignoli has a minimalist approach as he believes in letting the grapes have their own voice and looks for purity of fruit with little intervention. The Reunión wines are made to be enjoyed around the dinner table as an everyday wine that expresses both fruit and terroir to achieve a balanced finish.

    Dark fruits, chocolate, fresh herbs and licorice on the nose. Shows a slightly gritty texture but also good concentration and sweetness to its flavors of black cherry, dark berries, licorice, spices and minerals. Finishes with a firm dusting of tannins and lingering violet perfume. This intense midweight offers good fruit and energy for the price.
