our story

a bear on a bike

about our beloved mascot…

“Like most countries in the world, in Argentina a bicycle is a legitimate means of basic transportation for many people. Our finca (vineyard) is located in a rural area where nights are coal black and the locals never have lights or reflectors while pedaling on roads. But when the moon is out, this natural illumination helps keep riders safe and guides them to their destination. One night I was driving home very late and, except for a gauzy crescent moon, not a light to be found anywhere. Up ahead a big burly but indistinguishable figure on a bike (of course with no light or reflectors), squarely in the center of the road, was on a mid-night journey of importance known only to him. Possibly to work at a mid-night shift at one of the local bodegas, or perhaps going home to family. As I came closer I slowed down, and as Bacchus is my witness he looked over to smile at me, and he looked exactly like a big happy blue bear riding his bike somewhere. under that joyful crescent moon”
