Tierra Divina Vineyards encompasses a portfolio of wines from both California and Argentina, all of which are the “brain children” of (MW) Patrick Campbell. Patrick began his winemaking career in 1981 when he produced the first vintage of Laurel Glen Cabernet Sauvignon, from a tiny vineyard he owned on top of Sonoma Mountain. Constantly in search of a great value for consumers, Patrick has expanded his wine horizons to include projects in Lodi, California and Argentina. He was the first North American to produce his own Malbec in Argentina under his Terra Rosa label in the mid-1990s, leading the charge on what has been one of the hottest and fastest growing wine varietals in US wine market history.
His early discovery of the potential of Argentinean Malbec afforded him the opportunity to contract some of the area’s oldest and best vineyard sites. He works primarily with two sites: Luján de Cuyo and Valle de Uco. The average age of the vines he works with is about 70 years. He also makes a wine called Tierra Divina (after his company name) sourced exclusively from the Valle de Uco.
