La Yunta Torrontes


  • The Spanish words, “La Yunta” signify a pair pulling together for a common cause. This pioneering project was created in 2001 by Elixir Wine Group founder/President, Kirk Ermisch as a way of showing the world the excellence and crisp, lively balance of the Torrontés grape.
  • La Yunta Torrontés is a 100% Torrontés Riojana from the third largest Argentine grape growing region of La Rioja., Valle de Famatina appelation.
  • The Torrontés grape was first brought to Argentina in the late 1800’s by Spanish immigrants. The region’s more moderate climate produces a Torrontés that is much more “focused” on the palate and considerably drier than most.
  • Careful vineyard management and native yeast fermentation make this Torrontés with Terroir!

Varietal Composition: 100% Torrontés

Elaboration: Pick at varying degrees Brix and fermented separately and then blended. Native yeast fermentation. 5% of the wine was aged in French oak to give it a wider palate. 45 year old vineyard.

Tasting Notes: Notably aromatic of green melon and white peach. It has balanced citrus flavor with a touch of French oak to provide a crisp yet lingering finish.




At the crossroads of four corners and four historic wineries, Luigi Bosca, Baldini, and Lagarde, Bodega Calle is located on their southwest corner. A small-lot, gravity-flow, red wine making studio located in the prized viticultural area of ​​Luján de Cuyo, our winery was opened in 2001 in the restored Claudio Erice winery, originally built in 1925. The winery concentrates on varietal wines and premium red blends sourced from viticultural areas throughout Luján and Valle de Uco. All wines are made with the use of gravity and are never pumped to deliver the grapes to the fermentation tanks.

All grapes are farmed without the use of herbicides or pesticides, are hand picked and sorted and vinified using native yeasts, which results in a more gradual fermentation curve and less intervention with refrigeration. Bodega Calle is a certified organic winery and the wines are GMO free and vegan. Also, the winery recently joined the DOC of Luján de Cuyo, the 5th winery ever to be admitted. Kirk Ermisch is its principal owner and general manager. Christopher Ermisch is the original founder of Bodega Calle, along with Elvira Calle, a famous local businesswoman and philanthropist.
