The word "dolium" is Latin for amphora, the distinctive bottles that the classical Greeks and Romans used to store wine. Like the Romans, who kept wines underground at a constant temperature throughout the year, Dolium is the first underground winery in Argentina to combine such ancient traditions with modern technology.

Under the direction of Mario Giadorou, a mechanical engineer with a distinguished background in private industry before turning his attention to the production of fine wine in 1997, this high tech and state of art winery rose in the middle of the existing vineyard. In this way his ancient family's activity in Italy was reborn.

The winery has invested in the latest equipment, including moveable crushers and stainless steel tanks.

The winery's vineyards are in Lunlunta, Agrelo, Perdriel, and Chacras de Coria. All of the grapes are hand picked and carefully selected from vines that have been pruned to reduce yields and increase the level of extract.

Our winemakers Sebastián Yañez and Laura Olguin manage the elaboration of our wines in small batches adapting to the small variations in terroir in order to plan the work in each portion of vineyard - this allows to enhance the quality. The overall style of our wines evoke the intense fruit and complexity of the California style which Paul Hobbs, Andrea Marchiori and Luis Barraud defined while making our wines between 2000 and 2005, taking into consideration the trends in the markets and giving a "plus" in the expression of our grapes in each terroir.

At Dolium we follow standards of the highest quality. Our wines respond to international quality and market requirements, while mantaining the personality of their native soil. This is our commitment to our customers and with ourselves.
