Bodega Norton has a rich history dating back to 1895, when the winery was founded by Englishman Richard Norton. Today, the winery is run by his great-grandson, Tim Norton, and continues to produce outstanding wines that reflect the unique terroir of Mendoza. The Bodega Norton vineyards are located in the prized First Zone of Mendoza, at the foot of the Andes mountains, and benefit from ideal growing conditions for producing high-quality grapes. The average age of the vines is 30 years, with some 80-year-old vines also cultivated on site. This results in wines with great depth of flavor and character. Whether you're enjoying a glass of Norton Malbec or Cabernet Sauvignon, you can be sure that every bottle is stamped with the Bodega Norton seal of quality.
