The Mosquita Muerta project was launched in 2010 by José Millán junior.
It focuses on the production of premium blends. For that purpose, a careful selection of grapes is carried out, encompassing different varieties from the company’s own vineyards as well as incorporating grapes from other vineyards located in the most important viticulture areas in Mendoza.
Mosquita Muerta can be translated as “dead little fly”, a concept used in Spanish to refer to low-profile seemingly harmless women who turn out to be dangerous and strong. The name and combination mark are a tribute to José Millán’s four daughters (Marisel, Melisa, Macarena and Maria José). Moreover, he was raised as the only son in his family of origin, amidst several sisters. That is why he says he has always been surrounded by “mosquitas muertas”.
