B ODE GA CATENA ZAPATA G R E AT W I N E S B E G I N I N T H E V I N E YA R D. We at Catena Zapata are dedicated to unlocking the secrets of our land to bring Mendoza’s wines to the rest of the world. In 1902, Nicolás’s grandfather Nicola Catena planted his first Malbec vineyard in Mendoza. Today, the wines of Bodega Catena Zapata are sourced from six historic estate vineyards: Angélica, La Pirámide, Nicasia, Domingo, Adrianna and Angélica Sur. Laura Catena and Nicolás Catena Zapata “Friday night's Vintner Dinner was extraordinary. Chef Eric Ziebold (of Kinship in Washington, DC) did an outstanding job of pairing our wines with his cuisine, and it was just a perfect night on all counts. I loved the opportunity to meet the people who were going to be bidders at the auction. e energy in the room the next day was incredible, and I give a lot of credit to the Vintner Dinner for getting everybody fired up to bid up, up, and up!” Laura Catena 32 PORTFOLIO MAGAZINE
