Bodega Catena Zapata is a family-owned winery located in Mendoza, in the sub appellation of Agrelo, Argentina. The winery structure is distinguished by its pyramid-like design based on Mayan architecture. Its wines have contributing to raising the profile of Argentine as a hub for wine production. The winery was founded in 1902 by Italian immigrant Nicola Catena and was passed to his son Domingo. Domingo’s son, Nicolás Catena Zapata (A.K.A. Nicolás Catena) was one of the first to introduce European winemaking techniques to Argentina and pioneered Malbec and vine growing in high altitudes. Nicolás Catena’s daughter, Laura Catena, and other members of the Zapata family have also been involved in the winery.
