Carelli wines have achieved international recognition. In Stephen Tanzer`s last report, Carelli Malbec got 92 points. Through this article, readers may know about the successful case of this winery. Bodegas y Viñedos Santos J. Carelli was born in 1943, when Santos J. Carelli bought the winery, which was built in 1895. It comprises a late 19th century building, recently restructured by the famous Bórmida-Yanzón studio, maintaining its original construction and country-house style, with high ceilings, wooden floors and ornaments, and glass skylights, all of which create an intimate environment for visitors. The third generation is currently participating in the project, leading Carelli wines to achieve several international awards. The winery is located in Reducción, in the district of Rivadavia, to the south of Tunuyán River. Carelli has 140 hectares of own vineyards in Rivadavia, San Martín and Junín. In average, Carelli has an annual production of 12,000 hectoliters of own grapes including Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc and Torrontés. The results have been very good: Carelli Malbec 2006 received Gold Medals in the contests "Malbec al Mundo 2006" and "Argentina Wine Awards 2009." Moreover, Carelli Gran Malbec 2006 got 92 points in Stephen Tanzer`s tasting "The Best New Wines from Argentina."
Ninety Plus Cellars
90+ Cellars is not like most other wineries. We don’t make a single drop of wine ourselves. Instead, we offer a small portfolio of high-end wines at everyday prices through a business model that transforms wine market inefficiencies into better value for fine wine consumers. 90+ Cellars converts excess capacity and oversupply at award winning wineries into wine bottled under the 90+ Cellars label, which wine lovers can purchase for less. 90+ Cellars was created in 2009 when founder Kevin Mehra and co-founder Brett Vankoski discovered surplus inventories of premium wine due to decreased consumer spending as the global economy headed into recession. They purchased excess inventory, had it bottled with the 90+ Cellars label and sold it for less than the source bottle price. 90+ Cellars converted market inefficiencies into value for both winemakers and consumers by enabling wineries to sell their oversupply without diluting the value of their brand, and offering consumers an upscale wine for less money. Since then, the people at 90+ Cellars have traveled the world on a mission to provide wine lovers with a way to enjoy their favorite wine more often, and to discover their next favorite.
