The successful IRAM/GMP certification is significant to Piattelli's vision and commitment to long-term sustainability. During the 2018 harvest, the GMP professionals conducted a detailed inspection of our wineries including cleanliness, sanitation, personnel qualifications and important process validations. In achieving sustainability, as in all farming, nothing is simple. It comes down to a million small decisions that benefit the quality of our wine and lessens the pressure on the environment

IRAM information below:

The Instituto Argentino de Normalización y Certificación (IRAM) is a private non-profit body. Founded in 1935, it became a legal entity in 1937 and was shortly afterwards granted recognition by the Government as the Central Organization for the technical and scientific study of standards, with the object of developing and maintaining uniformity of systems and criteria. The present relationship between the Government and IRAM is defined in Presidential Decree 1474/94, approved in August 1994, which establishes the National System for Standards, Quality and Certification. The System consists of a National Council, the Argentine Accreditation Body (OAA) and the Argentine Standardization Body (IRAM). On 2 February 1995, IRAM signed an agreement with the Secretariat of Industry, which contains rights and obligations for both parties. IRAM represents the Argentine Republic in ISO, IEC, together with AEA (Argentine Electrotechnical Association), COPANT (Pan American Standards Commission) and AMN (Asociación Mercosur de Normalización). In close collaboration with Government, industry, consumers, technology and research it studies technical standards, which (when approved) are applied at national level on a voluntary basis - unless otherwise decided by a government authority, especially in the case of health and safety standards. IRAM prepares the national positions before the respective technical committees of ISO and IEC (together with AEA). The main activities of IRAM are: standardization; certification of products, processes and services; certification of management systems; education and training courses; and running the Information Centre.

Piattelli Vineyards is excited to announce our recent expansion of the Cafayate location with additional vineyards in Animaná, located in the Salta Province of Argentina.

Animaná Calcareous Soil

This land is full of rich calcareous soils, that grow high quality wines. This soil has already proven to yield award winning results - after just a few years of operation, all of our Cafayate wines are rating at 90+ points with two recent awards of 95 points for our Reserve Torrontés at the International Wine Challenge in England and 93 points from James Suckling for our Grand Reserve Malbec.
