PerSe is a personal project from Edgardo (Edy) del Popolo and David Bonomi, trailblazers on the Argentine wine scene. David is one of the most knowledgeable oenologists in the Uco Valley, with on-the-ground experience from Altamira in the south to Gualtallary in the north. Edy was practically born under a grapevine: his parents owned vineyards in north Mendoza, he went on to study oenology and agronomy, and when the winery he was working at was sold to the Santa Rita Estates, he became Doña Paula’s first Argentine employee, going on to oversee planting for them across Argentina. In 2012 Edy and David founded PerSe, a boutique project based in the Uco Valley making fine wines which express their origins as transparently as possible. The terroir they have chosen is Gualtallary, in their opinion the most interesting area within the Uco Valley, as the combination of a cool climate with complex soils is capable of producing extraordinary wines of unmistakable personality. They have planted their own vineyard at 1,500 metres on the land leased to them by the Monasterio de Gualtallary. Each of their wines comes from a specific section within the vineyard, with a different soil type.
