Andeluna was created by its owner, international businessman H.Ward Lay (son of the founder of Lays – the parent company of Walkers crisps) and the Rutini family of Argentina. The winery and vineyards are situated in the beautiful Uco Valley close to the town of Tupungato. This area, close to the Andes, is producing some of the best fruit in Argentina.
