The d'Aulan family (former owners of Piper-Heidsieck Champagne) own Bodega Alta Vista. Their aim is to highlight the qualities of the typical Argentine varieties Malbec and Torrontés through their portfolio of high quality wines.
Alta Vista made their first vintage in 1998 with the goal of producing wines that are an aunthentic expression of the terroir. The team at Alta Vista believes that great wine begins in the vineyard. This dedication to quality is evident in every sip of their wine.
The vineyards are located in Mendoza at the foothills of the Andes. This is the most prestigious wine region of Argentina. At an altitude of over 1000 meters and with the perfect combination of circumstances - over 300 days of sunshine a year, the cleanest possible air in the world and just the right amount of rain - this is one of the healthiest and most naturally located wine regions in the world.
"Shows terrific intensity and drive, with a torrent of fig paste, macerated currant, boysenberry and blackberry fruit riding over dark, loamy tannins. Muscular and mouth-filling, but with riveting acidity buried deep on the lengthy finish. Unabashed in style, and very impressive. Best from 2009 through 2015." 95 Points, Wine Spectator
