Founded in the late 1990’s by Marcelo Miras, Bodegas Miras is a family project which started by
making wine for family consumption (a practice not uncommon in Argentina). They are based near the city of
Neuquen in Rio Negro province, Patagonia, 800km south of Mendoza. Marcelo has been involved in wine
production from a very young age, and worked with big producers in Patagonia (including Humberto Canale and Fin
Del Mundo). A desire to make his own wines, in his own style, led to Bodegas Miras, a project unrecognizable to the
commercial estates Marcelo once worked for. Pablo, Marcelo’s son, is now involved in the project. Together they
tend organic vineyards, making wines by hand with parcels of Trousseau, Semillon and Malbec.
