Mendoza, Argentina The name Jelu , which means “sun” comes from the Huarpe Indian language. The Estate was founded in January 2002 in Mendoza, Argentina. Jelu is essentially an ongoing project. Founded by a group of energetic young, local winemakers, the goal was to offer winemaking consultancy services while providing technical help to their South American growers who aimed to export wine. All the wines in the Jelu portfolio are clean, original examples of what Argentina has to offer. All of Jelu, from the winery and its employees to the vineyards, is firmly entrenched in an environmental consciousness. Vineyard workers adhere to sustainable agricultural practices and are trained in organic practices, including worker training sessions. All the grapes are organically grown and no herbicides, pesticides or inorganic fertilizers are used. The Santa Sylvia vineyard in the Zonda valley of San Juan has been recognized as a world class site for winegrowing. The Jelu range basically promotes the uniqueness of the valley’s terroir. The climate is one of extremes, with variations of 50 degrees in one day are very common in the summer months. The property is an old riverbed; the soils are mostly alluvial.
