Urraca Winery is the fulfillment of a dream for John Langley and his family. John is best known for his work as a TV producer and is called “The Godfather of Reality TV” for his work on the TV series COPS. He has produced many other shows and has earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his contributions to TV. He was looking for a property that he could use to start a winery, and had toured many wine regions around the world. In 2005 he visited Mendoza and found this property in the Agrelo appellation of Lujan de Cuyo, which has produced some of the best reds from the Mendoza region. The vineyards are at 3,150 feet above sea level. This is a family run winery and the name Urraca is Spanish for “Magpie” which is a term of endearment that John uses for his wife Margaret.
