Identifying micro-terroirs from extreme altitudes of over 2,200 m.a.s.l. with optimal growing conditions is a search that has consumed winemaker Agustin Lanus for over a decade.
At this writing, Agustin and team are making premium wines from vineyards located in extreme altitude micro-terroirs located in three of the Argentine provinces which touch the Calchaqui Valley: Salta, Catamarca and Tucuman.
At Agustin Lanus Wines we believe the quality of the wines produced are worth the extraordinary effort and risk of producing wines from the limits of what is possible.
