Additional information

Augustin Lanus Wines

In 2006 Agustin Lanus travelled to the upper Calchaqui Valley Argentina for the first time with the specific goal of learning more about the unique micro-terroirs found at
extreme altitudes. These terroirs, ranging from 1,650 to 3,100 meters above sea level, host some of the highest vineyards in the world.
“Many say that driving 9 hours into the mountains on dangerous dirt roads just to check on our grapes is crazy, but then they try the wine and they understand.” – Agustín Lanús
