Maipo Valley, Chile – Rising into the Andean foothills is Alto Maipo, the most prestigious of Maipo’s viticultural areas. The vineyard grows along the banks of the Maipo River at 2,000 feet above sea level. Broad variation between daytime and nighttime temperatures gives us a bold, yet elegant Cabernet Sauvignon. The top soil is shallow sandy-silky with 75% rough stone underneath, allowing for good drainage.
