The winery Tempus Alba is a family project that was born in 2002 with the construction of the winery, located in Coquimbito, Maipú, Mendoza.
However, the Biondolillo family has a winemaking legacy which traces back to 100 years, when their ancestors journeyed to America all the way from Italy, and the winery is currently managed by their fourth generation.
Luckily, we received samples from them to blindly taste and rate them. And these are the highlights!
