In 2014, long-time friends Agustin Lanus and international entrepreneur David Galland, who met while sharing their passion for long-distance horseback riding in the Andes, decided to form a collaboration to make fine wines from the high altitude terroirs of Cafayate, Argentina.
The result was Bad Brothers Wines, which today produces a portfolio of exceptional wines from carefully sourced high altitude vineyards of between 1,750 and 2,000 m.a.s.l. located around the scenic pueblo of Cafayate, a fast growing hub of wine-making in Argentina's Calchaquí valley.
Each harvest Agustin Lanus searches the valley around Cafayate, Argentina for varietals with the special characteristics to become Bad Brothers Facon Selection wines. Some years, only one wine has qualified. In 2019 we are pleased to release four!
Facon Selection Malbec 2017, a true expression of the combination of the elegant yet rich wines produced from the high altitude vineyards of the Calchaqui Valley, Salta, Argentina.
Facón Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2017: A beautiful wine for fans of Cabernet Sauvignon, made from a single high altitude vineyard.
Facón Selection Cabernet Franc 2017: A much sought after varietal grown in a small plot on the outskirts of Cafayate.
Facón Selection Tannat 2017: There are few growing areas more favorable than Cafayate to the production of a smooth and delicious tannat wine offering the varietal’s best attributes with robust flavor and juicy but tamed tannins.
In addition, the current offering of Bad Brothers wines include these popular
a proprietary blend that adds 25% locally grown Viognier to a Cafayate Torrontes to produce a smooth drinking, fresh white wine ideal for a warm summer day.
MaTaCa, a blend that brings together the fruitiness and smoothness of Malbec, the volume and structure of Tannat and the elegance of Cabernet.
Located at 1,700 meters above sea level the quiet pueblo of Cafayate sits on the floor of a high desert valley surrounded by the towering Andes mountains. Increasingly important in Argentina viticulture, the Calchaqui valley now hosts vineyards from some of Argentina’s best known winemakers.
Cafayate is famous for year-round sunshine, with approximately 320 sunny days each year. Combined with the cool nights typical of high desert terroirs, the vineyards benefit from a high degree of thermal amplitude, the range between day and night-time temperature.
