Uco Valley: Mendoza, Argentina

  About 70 miles south of Mendoza, Argentina, lies one of the most picturesque wine regions in the world: the Uco Valley. Just a few short miles away, the foothills of the Andes mountains give rise to 20,000-foot peaks, including the 22,841-foot Aconcagua, which is the highest mountain outside of Asia. The terrain and weather in this region are similar to the southwestern United States and present an ideal combination for growing grapes. Hot days give way to cool nights and the porous, rocky ground allows the Andean water runoff to filter into the clay soil below. In recent decades, there has been a migration of French winemakers to the region, bringing more ...

  About 70 miles south of Mendoza, Argentina, lies one of the most picturesque wine regions in the world: the Uco Valley. Just a few short miles away, the foothills of the Andes mountains give rise to 20,000-foot peaks, including the 22,841-foot Aconcagua, which is the highest mountain outside of Asia. The terrain and weather in this region are similar to the southwestern United States and present an ideal combination for growing grapes. Hot days give way to cool nights and the porous, rocky ground allows the Andean water runoff to filter into the clay soil below. In recent decades, there has been a migration of French winemakers to the region, bringing more global visibility and validation to what was previously seen by many as a budget winemaking region. The Clos de Los Siete project is made up of four Bordeaux families and includes the Robert Parker 100-point winemaker Marcelo Pelleriti of Bodega Monteviejo. An innovative project The Vines Resort & Spa,  was started with the intent to allow individuals to achieve their dream of becoming winemakers by offering one-acre plots of land for purchase. The property boasts luxury casitas, a restaurant created by internationally acclaimed chef Francis Mallmann, multiple boutique wineries offering tours and tastings, and an eponymous winery with a master winemaker to assist individual plot owners in bringing their wines to fruition. Some notable wineries on the property are Corazon del Sol, Solo Contigo and the naturally-inclined Super Uco. The primary grape in the region is Malbec. Nuvo Magazine has a fascinating article on the history of the Malbec grape, which has been planted in France since the Middle Ages and was one of the five original Bordeaux varietals. Many factors led to the Malbec decline in Bordeaux, not the least of which was the phylloxera epidemic of the 19th century, which wiped out most of the original growth vines. But while the grape declined in Bordeaux, it continues to shine bright in the arid climate of Mendoza. No trip to Argentina would be complete without steak, and there are plenty of fantastic options in the region, including Siete Fuegos at The Vines. Their Wednesday evening Chef’s Table option is a front-row seat to witness Argentinian open-fire cooking at its best. Other dining experiences include Zucardi's  impressive lunch at their award-winning bodega, a low-key outdoor lunch with views of the Andes at Gimenez Riili and Casa de Uco's  stunning views and excellent ribeye. If you’re lucky enough to find yourself traveling through the rugged beauty of Argentina’s wine country, our Explorer Backpack and Cavalier Series duffel bags make excellent companions.

Ghurka Features

  • Our Leather

    Ghurka leather is never pretreated to remove any flaws, we must begin by using the most naturally flawless hides available. While we utilize a variety of leather types based on which is best suited to a particular product, the majority of our goods are made from French calfskin. Calfskin has a finer grain and softer feel than traditional cowhide as the younger age of the animal brings less exposure to the harsh elements, the main cause of imperfection. French calfskin in particular is considered the finest in the world due to the fact that farms in France do not use barbed wire, one of the leading causes of mars and scratches. As no two skins are completely alike, each and every handcrafted leather Ghurka product will have an individual character that adds to its unique patina as it ages.

  • The Stitching

    We use an extra-thick spun nylon that should never snap or fray, and all of our craftsmen ensure that each and every piece is stitched to our exacting standards. A careful review of any two parts of a Ghurka leather luggage piece will reveal exactly the same number of stitches per inch, a requirement for anything that leaves our workshop. The placement of these stitches is equally exact, precisely laid out to the millimeter to ensure that every bit of leather is assembled to last a lifetime.

  • The Brass

    Brass is the only metal we've found that offers the strength, durability, and reliability that have become our hallmark. Every single piece of our hardware - from zippers, buckles, and hooks to the smallest of snaps and rivets are made solely from this rugged and beautiful material. A great deal of time and expense has been invested in perfecting our brass zippers. Every single tooth is individually machined and polished to ensure flawless operation after years of continuous use. And since all of our leather briefcase and leather travel bag hardware is solid brass and never plated, it too will develop a unique character and patina as it ages alongside our famous leather.

  • The Process

    Since our founding, Ghurka has set out to manufacture the highest handcrafted leather goods available in the U.S. This has always begun with using only the finest hides in the world. While there are endless varieties of leather available, only a handful pass the rigorous selection process required to bear the Ghurka medallion. Likewise, our signature solid brass hardware and trademark stitching process ensure that our bags deliver an unparalleled owner experience and lifetime of use.
