“Alpasión,” a combination of the Spanish “alma” (soul) and “pasión” (passion). The Alpasión label features the fingerprints and signatures of all of the winery’s owners as a testimony to friendship for life.

The winery owns 85 hectares of land and although not certified just yet, Alpasión practices sustainable organic farming to ensure the health of soils, ecosystems, and people. Even part of the vineyard is planted in the shape of a giant fingerprint.

History

The Alpasión Winery was founded by a group of wine lovers who decided to make a winemaking 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 the soul) and “pasión” (passion). The Alpasión label features the fingerprints and signatures of all of the winery’s owners. Underlining a highly personal, hands-on project, a partnership-driven by passion and friendship for life.

Vineyard

The Alpasión Vineyard is located in the Argentina Uco Valley, which is the area in Mendoza where the highest altitude vineyards are located (between 1,200 and 1,500 meter 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 is one of the most prominent, innovative and passionate winemakers in the region.

The winery owns 85 hectares of land and although not certified just yet, Alpasión practices sustainable organic farming to ensure the health of soils, ecosystems, and people. Even part of the vineyard is planted in the shape of a giant fingerprint.
