The proportion changes depending on the harvest, but the style is defined by the characteristic of each terroir and by the 12-month aging process in new oak barrels, that enhances its spicy, floral aromas, and soft tannins.
The winery is in the heart of Chacras de Coria, 15 km south of Mendoza city. It is a historical edifice built in 1899, fully restored in 2003, and with all the cutting-edge vine-growing technology. The technical systems are versatile, making an "haute couture" job possible in every wine range. The winery stands out from all the rest because of its small tanks, which enable the production of high-quality wines. The cellars, the most beautiful in South America, shelter Alta Vista wine barrels.
European inheritance, aging is an important factor in the production of great wines. Ours are aged with or without wood for a minimum of 12 months. After the fractional process, they are stowed into bottles for at least 3 months before they are dispatched. Some, like Alto, spend thirty six months in our cellar before being dispatched.
