BC Wine & Food is a leading importer and sole distributor of wine and food mainly from Germany and Argentina.

In 1880 Juan Giol, Bautista Gargantini and Pascual Toso immigrated from Europe to Argentina and settled in Mendoza. Juan Giol bought the today existing Cellar and bordering Vineyards in 1915, of which the first phase was build in 1890. The name of the Winery is in memory of their place of birth ´San Polo di Piave´, a small town in Venice. In establishing the Winery they belong to the Pioneers of the Wine Industry in Argentina.

Today, the winery is lead by the married couple
Alejandra Giol and Rodolfo Masera in the same philosophy of their forefathers with highest
esteem to the production of their wines.

 

The 180ha of Vineyards are found 1000m above Sea Level at La Consulta (Uco Valley) a very natural, environment friendly area far away from all Industries.
Irrigation follows exclusively through mineral rich melting water from the snow covered Andes Mountains.
With an average rainfall of 300mm and over 300 Sunny Days per year in a Continental-arid Climate
the Vines grow in a clay and gravel rich alluvial soil.

 

Fermentation takes place in 57 concrete tanks, each with a capacity of between 6.000 and 15.900 liters. Six underground aging Cellars have a storage capacity for 500 Oak Barrels.  Originally wine was exclusively supplied to leading Producers in Argentina but since 2000 the Winery produces Premium Wines under their own Label.
