To understand the origins of Caro, the flagship wine of producer Bodegas Caro in Mendoza, we must go back to the previous century, when Argentina was just beginning to emerge onto the global wine scene.

Nicolás Catena, the head of Catena Zapata, was leading a local viticultural revolution when he happened to cross paths with Baron Eric de Rothschild, the president of Château Lafite and Domaines Barons de Rothschild (DBR), marking the beginning of a relationship that would merge two winemaking dynasties.
