Catena Branches Into Natural Wine

October 10, 2019

Argentine winery Bodega y Viñedos Catena is launching La Marchigiana, a trio of natural wines that pays homage to the Catena family’s winemaking roots in 19th-century Italy. The limited-production bottlings of Criolla Chica, Chardonnay, and Bonarda are fermented and aged in tinajas, traditional clay pots like those used by winery founder Nicola Catena when he arrived in Argentina from Le Marche, Italy, more than 100 years ago. Each of the three varieties is a 2017 vintage, now available in the U.S. through MundoVino, a division of Winebow, retailing at $35 a 750-ml. The Catena brand sells approximately 165,000 cases annually, according to Impact Databank.—Danny Sullivan
