"Altocedro represents real artisanal winemaking, a boutique operation with some serious talent behind the wheel."
-Wine Spectator

Altocedro was founded in 1999 by visionary Karim Mussi. Third generation Lebanese immigrant, Karim and his family pioneered La Consulta, Uco Valley as a special place to make “born and raised” wines. Twenty years later, in 2019, Karim’s crazy idea became conventional wisdom when La Consulta was classified as one of Argentina’s few Geographic Indication (GI) Appellations. Altocedro is synonymous with outstanding La Consulta wine. Original old vine rootstocks, indigenous yeasts, hundred year-old concrete fermentation tanks, and Karim’s minimalist winemaking create true terroir-driven wines. The name Altocedro pays homage to Karim’s roots. Cedar trees are considered sacred in the Lebanese culture, and they surround the Altocedro winery and estate vineyard.

Fresh and plush, with violet and wild berry aromas. Its brilliant purple color is indicative of its La Consulta terroir.

Tempranillo, brought by Spanish immigrants, is the second most planted grape in La Consulta. Refreshing acidity and red fruit flavors.

La Consulta produces a cooler-climate Cab than most of Mendoza. Herbal and spice notes combine with creamy dark fruit flavors.
