One day a group of friends were enjoying some wine together and started talking about how cool it would be if they would start making their own. We’ve all done this from time to time, jokingly. But the founders of Alpasión actually went ahead and followed through with it.
Located in the Uco Valley region of Mendoza in Argentina, this winery owns 85 hectares of land (60 of them being vineyards) at 1,200 meters above sea-level. Although it doesn’t look like they’re certified just yet, they live by the code of sustainable organic farming. Right now they only make two wines. I’ve already reviewed their 2013 Malbec and today I’m reviewing their 2012 Private Selection.
