About O Fournier
"The names of the "Alfa Crux" and "B Crux" wines are based on the stars of the Southern Cross. This constellation is only visible in the Austral Hemisphere. The characterization of the ostrich on the label symbolises the joining of the earth and the sky. The Argentinean Mocovi Indians captured this through paintings in the caves they inhabited and through different legends that were passed from generation to generation.

After selecting the barrels individually, Bodega y Vinedos O. Fournier will offer its best wine under the "Alfa Crux" label. This wine will have spent approximately 18 months in new oak barrels and 12 months in bottles. The second wine, "B Crux", will age in oak barrels, 50 per cent new and 50 per cent second year, for 12 months and in bottles for a minimum of six months."

"Our "Urban" range represents modernity in winemaking with fruit-driven, soft and fresh wines. This style is suited for the sophisticated, urban consumer. Wines are aged in French and American oak barrels for three months." - Winery
