Casarena is forging a different path from the other wineries in Mendoza. Instead of searching for undiscovered terroirs in new places like the Uco Valley, it is discovering the hidden gems in its home region of Luj?n de Cuyo - a place full of rich tradition, potential, and unique microterroirs. Casarena has purchased as well as planted vineyards in several distinctive sites, and they control all aspects of winegrowing and winemaking in order to maximize the flavour expression of these terroirs.
The name ?Casarena? is a creative merging of the Spanish words ?casa? (house) and ?arena? (sand), and is a tribute to their restored 1930s winery made of sand-colored stone and the sandy soil that their estate is built on.
