Alamos is rooted in the history of the founding wine family of Argentina, the Catenas. With more than 100 years of passion and research behind the wines, Alamos puts the very best of Argentina into every bottle.
In the shadow of the Andes Mountains, Argentina’s renowned Mendoza wine regions and high-altitude vineyards develop bold, unique flavors in extreme conditions found nowhere else on earth. Brisk cool air caresses the Andes mountain rock as vines work hard to take root through the dry, porous soil. This quest into the earth to soak up snowmelt water creates wines that express a sense of place with optimal natural acidity and synchronized ripeness of sugars and tannins. Clear skies, intense daylight and cool nights enhance concentration of aromas and flavours giving rise to a long, smooth finish.
Incredibly clean air, intense sunlight, frosty cold nights and mineral-rich Andes snowmelt that irrigates the vines. From these highly distinct vineyards, Alamos offers authentically flavorful Argentine wines.
Alamos Head Winemaker Lucía Vaieretti grew up in Mendoza’s high desert vineyards. Her family has tended vines there for more than 40 years, and she has developed a deep bond with this distinct place. When Lucía was young, she worked the vineyards with her family. “Even then,” Lucía says, “I knew we were in a special place.”
