We claim to be the first winery to envision Mendoza as 'The Land of Malbec'. ALH started in 1995 as a specialist 'Malbec only' house, when Malbec plantings were at their historical lowest. Ever since, our passionate quest to capture the heart and soul of Mendoza Terroir - as expressed by this grape - has led us to explore all the different superior sub regions, to fully appreciate terroir awareness.
ALH doesn't produce international varieties such as Cabernet, Merlot, or Chardonnay; our work here is to combine Tradition and Innovation, and we consider Malbec the utmost and most unique vehicle of Mendoza tradition. This grape carries in its genetic code 150 years of adaptation to the area's conditions, and this patrimony makes Malbec the living memory of generations of past vintners.
We are innovative in our approach to terroir zoning, winemaking, and we model our business as the first 'Bodega Boutique', reflected by our size and international quality standards. This vision has allowed us to develop wines of unique personality, combining traditional Mendoza viticulture with quality Italian winemaking, taking advantage of our 'boutique' size to maintain our obsessive care for the products, and the personal touch that defines them.
