About us

We are a family-owned company established in 1999 by Carlos Clément, a renowned entrepreneur from Mendoza who is passionate about wine.

After a successful career as a customs broker —a time when he set up one of the largest foreign trade companies in Argentina—, Carlos decided to embark on a new adventure: growing vines in one of the most arid regions in Mendoza.

Twenty years later, his daughter Lis joined the company, expanding and strengthening the family business through her wine marketing and communication expertise.

Bodega y Viñedos Clément currently extends across 260 hectares of vineyards and a century-old winery equipped with state-of-the-art technology.

Winery

PER ASPERA AD ASTRA

Through rough roads, to the stars

Our commitment is to achieve excellence both in the vineyard and at the winery, all the while focusing on sustainability of the land and our community.

A century-old winery, a landmark of the region. With a total capacity of 10 million liters, our winery has been refurbished and equipped with state-of-the-art technology, so that our wines convey the quality of our grapes through cutting-edge winemaking techniques.

We belong to a new generation of winegrowers who dream of encouraging diversity at the heart of Argentine winemaking, which is why our wines are crafted with European and Argentine grapes alike.
