Established in 1998, Alta Vista is a French family-owned winery that focuses on the production of high altitude, site-specific wines. The family’s winemaking knowledge and passion, together with its former ownership of the famous champagne house Piper-Heidsieck, provided the impetus to create a harmonious French-Argentine fusion. Years of research brought them to the top growing regions of Mendoza, an area best suited for the creation of terroir-expression wines.
Following a pursuit of quality and innovation, and a mission as Terroir Expression Winemakers®, Alta Vista became the first Argentinean winery to produce single vineyard Malbec wines, each representing the unique characteristics of their high elevation, estate vineyards. The estate’s choice vineyards and terroirs in Mendoza and Salta provinces best highlight the characteristics of Argentina’s typical varieties Malbec and Torrontés, as well as the International varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
