Escala Humana Wine was started in 2015 by husband and wife team Ayelén and German Massera. German began making wine in 2003 while studying Enology and Viticulture in Mendoza and he has worked with Matias Michelini since 2016. German became interested in the history of the Uco Valley and its forgotten places and varietals. While the majority of the oldest vines are in Lujan and Maipu, there are a small handful of 4th and 5th generation producers in the Uco Valley who brought vines from Europe. Aye and German fell in love with two of these small vineyards where they grow Malvasia, Bequignol (a light bodied red varietal from Southwest France), Sangiovese and a few other varietals. These vineyards are located in El Zampal, a sub region of Tupungato in the Uco Valley where the soils are comprised of clay, loam and sand. Aye and German make these wines in the town of Tupungato at Matias Michelini’s Passionate Winery. The grapes are sustainably and organically farmed and the wines are fermented naturally and made with minimal intervention, leading to fresh, light bodied wines made of forgotten varietals that are windows into Argentina’s wine history. 

Livvera 100% Malvasia comes from a single vineyard in the El Zampal region of the Uco Valley. The nose shows orange peel, lemon balm, brazil nut and sage with some bright stone fruit aromas. In the mouth, there are rosewater, pink grapefruit, herbs, sour tangerine, spiced pear and saline notes from the Adriatic Sea. The wine has a slight orange color showing the 60 days of skin contact (in the 'orange wine method') and has a rich texture with good acidity and hints of kumquat.

From a vineyard planted in 1927 at a high altitude farmed with sustainable and organic methods. Low yields, 100% Destemmed fruit. Native Yeasts. Aged 6 months in used 225L French Oak Barrels. Bottled unfiltered.
