Añoro (pronounced ‘ahn-your-o’) is a unique word with no direct translation into English. In Spanish it often refers to the act of reminiscing or dreaming of a special time in one’s past. For us, it means creating something that we once only dreamed of – the wines of Añoro.
Añoro is a partnership between longtime friends Master Sommelier Ken Fredrickson and Ed Lehrman and Nick Ramkowsky, founders of Vine Connections, the leading national U.S. importer of fine Argentine wines. After many Argentine trips together and lengthy discussions about the quality of Mendoza’s existing wines and their future potential, we combined our extensive experience and local knowledge to make Argentina’s top small production wines for enjoying with fine food, whether at a 3-star Michelin restaurant or at one’s own home.
