Vineyards

Altocedro has one vineyard totaling 59 acres, located within La Consulta. Aging from 15-104 years old, these ancient vines are testament to the area’s winegrowing history, creating a living expression of Argentine viticulture.

The high quality grapes are cultivated using a variety of techniques depending on the vineyard, from pressurized drip and traditional flood irrigation (sourced from the Tunuyán River), to canopy management including double Guyot and double cordon systems to low and high trellis systems. The plant density ranges from 1,400 to 2,000 plants per acre, creating another layer or variety among the grapes. Vineyards management focuses on vine health, homogenous growth and a balanced canopy, allowing nature to runs its course with little human intervention.

There are an additional eight grape suppliers from La Consulta, all with ancient vines that date from 50 to 100 years old.
