Description

The Alto3 vineyards, located in Catamarca, 515 miles north of Mendoza, are some of the highest altitude vineyards in the world. At 4947 feet, they produce stellar grapes and critically acclaimed wines. The vineyards are situated between the Andes Mountain range on dry rocky soils that receive very scarce rain throughout the year (below 40 mm). The desert-like soils and dramatic temperature contrasts between day and night contribute to producing very low yields of high quality grapes.

Production

The altitude and weather facilitate holistic, organic and biodynamic practices. Alto3 uses only grapes from its Estate (190 acres) and yields are kept low (average of 5500 kg/Ha). The grapes are carefully selected and handpicked into small cases of 30 pounds, and only native yeasts are used. After a 21-day maceration, the wines are aged for six months in American and French oak casks. No fining or filtering takes place.
