Bodega Alamos belongs to the Catena Zapata group of wineries and its wines provide an initial link for us to get to know not only this family's mastery but also the purity of wines born at the foot of the Andes.
Its vineyards are located at altitudes of between 3,000 and 5,000 metres, a privileged position for enjoying very cool nights and receiving the sun's warmth during the day, the perfect pair for attaining acidity and perfect ripeness which both become so evident in the resultant wines. The treatment the grapes receive in the winery is also important: gentle extractions for obtaining lovely aromatic wines, defined by the aromas, flavour and texture typical of each variety, and with extra complexity achieved by a brief stay in French and American oak barrels. Pure, fresh, aromatic wines with a price-quality ratio that's very hard to beat.
