Where Zonda Got Its Name!
The hot winds race through the Zonda pass in the Andes Mountains, whipping the growing cane back and forth and strengthening the fibers. Zonda's European cane rootstocks have flourished since colonial times in the Mendoza region of Argentina, which has become famous for award winning wines.
