Elixir Wine Group owns and operates Bodega Calle winery in Luján de Cuyo, Argentina; an historic estate established in 1925 that Kirk Ermisch and his original Argentine partners, restored to its full glory in 2001, as an award winning producer of varietal wines and organically-farmed, proprietary red blends. Ermisch also produces several wines including Ermisch Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Willamette Valley which are Live Certified at our new micro-winery in Bend, Oregon. Ermisch travels to Argentina for part of each year to oversee harvest operations at Bodega Calle and to keep in contact with all our suppliers in South America.
