Doña Paula is the Argentine arm of the Santa Rita Wine Estates. In this podcast Martin Kaiser, wine maker and viticulturist at Doña Paula tells us that Doña Paula is an Estate winery and as such all of the grapes they use are grown on their own land.   

Where the grapes are grown is decided by an ultra scientific approach to an analysis of the varied soils high up in the Andes of Mendoza. It's fascinating. For a quick peek at this extraordinary landscape have a look at the video here. 

We are introduced here to Doña Paula by the (very good and widely availaable) Los Cardos varietal wines. Martin then introduces his other ranges including the fabulous  Altitude Blends, the Estate Wine labels and of course how could we forget the NOFFLA Rosé of the Year 2019 the Doña Paula Rose of Malbec 2018   

The day before we recorded this podcast Martin Kaiser was awarded the fabulous accolade  Argentine Viticulturist of the Year 2020 by Tim Atkin MW 'highlighting Martin's continued focus on terroir'. Tim knows his wines to the nth degree and this is one of the very genuine awards that recognises true talent. Congratulations Martin.


While all restaurants in Ireland were closed until recently many have now reopened. This is great news - Open Again! We should remember that many of these, including the wonderful Monty's of Kathmandu, are family businesses. They are often small and brilliant and need our support more than ever. Keep Safe and Keep well. 

Kevin Ecock's WinePod is brought to us with the assistance of the Santa Rita Wine Room at Monty's of Kathmandu - an excellent place to host your next event or celebration.
