In December 1999, the Codorníu Group realised its historic wish to be present in Argentina, with the purchase of 306 hectares of vineyards in the department of Luján de Cuyo, in the province of Mendoza. Septima currently has 100 hectares of vineyard located at 1,100 metres above sea level. The Septima vineyard is located on practically flat land, characterised by its scarcity of water and clearly continental climate. Like the rest of the wine cellars in the Codorníu Group, Septima has advanced oenological equipment for making its wine. To press the grapes, the cellar has a modern 100 Hl pneumatic press and the fermentation hall houses stainless steel tanks with a total capacity of 2.7 million litres.
