Vineyards belong to plot N°8 at our estate, located at the highest point at Pedernal Valley, at 1,400 m.a.s.l., at a different, virgin and wild terroir. Water for irrigation comes from snowmelt and rains and the system used is drip irrigation. Soils are alluvial made up by gravel of different sizes (angular shape) and soil composition (mainly calcareous stones and “Pedernal” silex, among others) combined with layers of fine materials such as sand, silt and clay. Soils are poor, with a low content of organic matter but with excellent water retention and distribution. They show good drainage and low ground compaction.

In 2008 Myndert Pon, the founder of Bodegas Salentein, visited the Pedernal Valley in San Juan and was inspired by the tremendous beauty, untamed nature and diverse terroir. This inspiration, and his vision to showcase the superlative fruit grown in the Pedernal Valley, led to the creation of Pyros Wines, the first world-class wines collection reflecting the unique terroir of the Pedernal Valley.
