Alta Vista Joins La Celia and Montechez in South2South Range

05-Feb-2013
Specialist Argentine wine importers ‘South2South' have added the prestigious ‘Alta Vista' brand to the ‘La Celia' and ‘Montechez' labels being brought into New Zealand. Alta Vista was established in 1988 by the French d'Aulan family who have varied global wine production interests, to specialise in Argentine Torrontes and Malbec. The company owns 209 ha in Salta and Mendoza with a significant portion of old vines at high altitude. The winery completed in 2003 is at Chacras de Coria, 15 km south of Mendoza city. The ‘Alto' and ‘Single Vineyard' wines are the top of the range with the ‘Premium' tier expressing classical varietal character. www.altavistawines.com Finca La Celia was established in 1890 by Eugenio Bustos, and was acquired by Chilean giant San Pedro in 2000. It has 600 ha of vineyards, with Uco Valley Malbec the star. Montechez is a relatively new operation, established in 2005 by a syndicate of businessmen owning a 75 ha vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo and 115 ha over two sites in the Uco Valley. South2South director Josefina Telleria's family are part owners. I recommend you keep an eye on what Chris Emmett and Josie Telleria of South2South are doing as they grow their importation and distribution of fine and modern Argentine wines. www.south2south.co.nz
