Finca La Chamiza

Mendoza, Argentina

In 1918 Don Martín Alsina founded La Chamiza Estate, a place where he could fulfill his dream of raising polo horses. As time passed, given the excellent qualities of the terroir, what once began as a meeting place for playing polo among friends, became the birthplace of the wines they produce today. This winemaking project began in 2003, with the objective of achieving excellence in high-end wines, reflecting in every bottle quality, elegance and the essence of Argentina—attributes that can all be found in Polo, a sport in which Argentina is a world leader and which Don Martín Alsina is a passionate fan of.

The vineyards that the Martin Alsina come from are at an altitude of 850 – 950 meters above sea level. This gives them a large diurnal range of temperature, allowing the grapes to fully ripen and develop the complex flavours that you taste in this wine. The vines themselves are almost 100 years old and the focus is on quality not quantity, with exceptionally low yields of fantastically ripe and rich grapes.
