Museo Santiago Graffigna - Other Activity San Juan - Argentina

In 1870, Italian immigrant Santiago Graffigna founded the first winery in the San Juan region. It would become the area’s most famous vineyard. Graffigna continued in the family until 1980. Today, the company is under the auspices of the French enterprise Pernod Ricard. A tour through Museo Santiago Graffigna teaches this history and the entire wine-making process. Also preserved are the Graffigna family’s offices. This visit is topped off with a lesson in desgustación (wine tasting) and a sampling of white and red wines.
