Winemaker and owner Karim Mussi Saffie uses sustainable growing practices to produce limited amounts of terroir-driven wines. The vines range up to 100 years of age. All harvesting, sorting, and crushing are done in individual batches by hand. Fermentation occurs either in small cement tanks or in barrels, and the extract is done with a gravity flow system developed at the winery over 100 years ago. Altocedro has become synonymous with outstanding La Consulta wine. Whole berry fermentation takes place in small concrete vats, over 7 days at 25C, four pump over a day. Undergoes malolactic fermentation and 30% is aged for 8-10 months in French oak.

Located in the sought-after region of La Consulta in the Uco Valley, renowned winemaker, Karim Mussi Saffie is producing terroir driven wines from vines up to 100 years old. Sustainable practices are at the core of Bodega Altocedro and the winery has become synonymous with premium La Consulta wine.
