BIRA was born from the search for the family roots of two friends, Santiago Bernasconi and Federico Isgró, both from Italy or Italian Switzerland. One from the north, another from the south, but both with a preference for wines from the peninsula. In that search they find the Sangiovese vineyard planted in 1975 in the Uco Valley, which convinces them to pursue the idea of developing Italian-inspired wines, but with an Argentine soul, at the height of the Andes.
BIRA in Argentina are initially 3 Sangiovese-based blend wines, Tuscan-inspired style and that would represent the first generation of immigrants who arrived in our country, and 2 Malbec-based, which would represent the first generation born in the country. The vineyards are located in Gualtallary, La Consulta and La Arboleda, all in Valle de Uco, Mendoza.
