over 128 years of history
Norton’s original property and home to the winery. With one hundred years of continuous cultivation, it has 100 hectares almost entirely planted with vines between 20 and 50 years, at 950 meters (3,117 ft) above sea level. The terroir combines poor soils and cold air from the mountains delivering aromatic and concentrated white and red grapes, perfect for making powerful and elegant premium wines. This estate stands out for the quality of its Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Malbec grapes.
Located on the other side of the cuchillas de Lunlunta, in the town of Junín, Finca Medrano is the most distant of all Norton vineyards and with the lowest elevation. It has 72 hectares planted at 700 meters (2,296 ft) above sea level, and the soil is sandy loam with good depth.
An old Malbec vineyard that dates back to the 1920s. Of its 20 hectares, 18 are planted 850 meters (2,788 ft) above sea level. Some of Norton’s best grapes for our premium wines are sourced from this vineyard. The soil is typical of the area: alluvial of origin with boulders, sand, and lime.
Located near the winery, our Agrelo estate has 30 hectares at 950 meters (3,117 ft) above sea level. It is planted with some of the region’s oldest vineyards, averaging 93 years. These carefully cultivated vines produce highly concentrated grapes to make our premium wines. Red varieties usually stand out from this region, especially Malbec, given the unique characteristics of its soils of alluvial origin with a deep layer of sand and a bed of stones.
