There are few wines that reflect the sensibilities of their owner more than Tikal. A skilled horseman, fashion designer, software developer, and book publisher, Ernesto Catena, son of Argentine wine legend Nicolas Catena, pursues all that gives pleasure in life. This hedonism (in the best sense of the word) shows through in his wines, which are meant to provide enormous pleasure rather than provoke contemplation; they appeal to emotion rather than intellect. He has named his wines with passion in mind: Amorio (Love Affair), Jubilo (Rejoice) and today's offer Patriota (Patriot).
Luis Reginato is the winemaker at Tikal. Luis is young, highly trained and respected as a vineyard consultant and winemaker with long experience at his family's winery in Mendoza. Truly an up and coming talent, Luis and his wines continue to garner high praise from U.S. wine critics. Definitely a winemaker to watch.
