Tilia, the Latin name for Linden, is a traditional tree throughout the wine country of Mendoza. Its flowers are used to make a popular herbal tea with calming properties.
The Tilia wines are made at Bodegas Esmeralda, winery in eastern Mendoza dedicated to the value segment of the Argentine domestic market.
The Tilia wines are made by renowned Catena winemaker, Leopoldo Kushnaroff.
The Tilia wines are made with a blend of fruit sourced from the Eastern and Southern regions of Mendoza.
