Our Head Winemaker, Mauricio Vegetti, with only 33 years old, has
gained international distinction with Gauchezco Wines. Perhaps, the
most prestigious recognition that Mauricio has received was the
outstanding score of 92 points for the Gauchezco Oro Malbec vintage
2008 in The Wine Advocate, and vintage 2009 in the Wine Enthusiast
Magazine and the English MW Tim Atkin.
Before joining our winery, Mauricio travelled throughout diverse national
and international wine producing regions. Mauricio spent the 2000,
2004 and 2006 harvest in France.
In addition to his talents as a winemaker, Mauricio’s hobbies set him
apart from many other young professionals. He is a huge fan of water
sports and every weekend he can be found in one of Mendoza’s dams
practicing windsurfing with his family and friends.
