Since the time it was founded, the wine cellar has pursued a path strongly marked by its philosophy and its vision of wine. Its Italian roots, given by Robert Cipresso himself, have been a pivotal contribution as an ideological foundation, which has been strengthened by team thinking, experience and oenological results.
Today, the cellar leaves an unmistakable seal on each one of its wines; this is a result of years of coherence, obsession and respect for nature.
Because of the unique and recognizable nature of its wine, Altamira Vineyards provoked the admiration of Robert Cipresso, our winemaker. The seniority of the vineyards and its extreme density (6,500 plants per hectare) assure for very low yields, lower than 400 grams/plant.
Achaval-Ferrer`s original concept was strongly founded on the terroir, and the chosen way to make it well known was through Malbec. The trilogy that happens to be the wine cellar´s cornerstone is formed by 3 artists that altogether give balance to the complex message that it wishes to convey.
