Century old images of Bodegas Santa Ana in Argentina


In 1910, the weekly Argentine magazine Caras y Caretas published extensive photographs and summarized descriptions of major Argentine wineries. The photographs focus in on buildings, rooms, barrels, and machinery rather than harvesting and wine making.  One featured winery is Bodegas Santa Ana of Mendoza.  It was founded in 1891 by Senor Kalless and Senor Tirasso and is still in operation today.  The winery initially produced 35,000 bottles of Bordeaux style wine such as Medoc and Sauternes but also Pinot Noir and even Champagne.  I have selected five images for your pleasure.
