The Alpasión Winery was founded by a group of wine lovers who decided to make a wine making dream come true. Passion is the driving force behind the project, hence we decided to name our inaugural release Alpasión, a combination of the Spanish alma (for soul) and pasión (passion). With 85 hectares of land and although not certified just yet, Alpasión practices sustainable organic farming to ensure the health of soils, ecosystems and people.
The Alpasión label features the fingerprints and signatures of all of the winery owners, underlining a highly personal, hands-on project and a partnership driven by passion and friendship for life. Even part of the vineyard is planted in the shape of a giant fingerprint.
The Alpasión Vineyard is located in the Argentinian Uco Valley, which is the area in Mendoza where the highest altitude vineyards are located (between 1,200 and 1,500 metres above sea level) and where some of the world-renowned icons in the wine industry such as Michel Rolland and the Rothschild family are concentrated. Our winemaker, Karim Mussi Saffie is one of the most prominent, innovative and passionate winemakers in the region.
