Great wines are made from the grapes of unique places. Alta Vista’s 516 acres of estate vineyards are among the best terroirs of Mendoza, at 3,200 feet elevation and higher. Work performed on every vineyard is tailored to each grape variety and site. The Estate Cabernet Sauvignon comes exclusively from the Uco Valley, where cooler microclimates produce wines with fresh acidity and firm structure.
