Tilia Bonarda

Tilia Bonarda

Wine Description

TILIA seeks to create action around sustainable farming in Argentina and around the world. Rural life in Mendoza is rooted in a deep connection with the surrounding natural environment and the stages of life in the vineyard, interrupted without fail by the family weekend gathering for asado, our name for barbecue.

TILIA illustrates the journey toward sustainable viticulture in Argentina through its label, with the hope to inspire a movement among wine drinkers and producers all over the world. The TILIA is also the first Argentine wine to carry the Bodegas de Argentina Certified Sustainable Seal on its label.

TILIA wines possess true varietal character and flavor complexity.
