Welcome to Versado
Thank you for joining us here to share the story of our prized Versado wine project in Argentina.
Our intensive study and exhaustive quest brought us to this small, historic Malbec planting. With the right people around us, we are turning the potential of this vineyard, in this beautiful place, into a promising future.
In these "pages" we will share with you the stories about the place, the people and the passion that create Versado. To accentuate our personal connection, scattered throughout the site you will find speaker icons that will lead you to stories told in our own words, and in our own voices.
But we also believe that it is the wine we make that is the ultimate "voice of the vineyard." Pour some into your glass to truly start the conversation.

They are also looking forward to welcoming a number of friends to their beautiful villa, including some winemakers and winery owners from Canada.
"This is very fine, serious malbec, hardly your run-of-the-mill $12 fare. Full-bodied and intense, it shows luscious berry fruit, dark roast coffee and spice, with juicy acidity. It’s got great structure for the cellar."
Nov. 14, 2013 - Ontario's LCBO has gathered a stellar group of producers for their Nov. 23, 2013 release - The Best of All Worlds - and our two new Versado releases are a proud part of it.
"Rugged Argentina has many signatures. One of the more recently minted is Malbec, a world-renowned marker of the country's winemaking achievements. Wrapped up or on the dinner table, a premium Malbec is sure to thrill.
"The exciting new project of Canadians Peter Gamble and Ann Sperling. The name Versado, meaning 'well versed/accomplished,' reflects the quality of the old vines from which this remarkable wine is sourced."
