Oscar Alberto now runs this family vineyard after his grand parents founded it in 1959. 100% organic farming with some biodynamic practices. Soils are mainly clay and cultivation is still done with horses. Water from the ice-capped Andes mountains irrigates the vineyard. High altitude wines as usual from this region.
