THE VINEYARD

The Alpasión Winery was founded by a group of wine lovers who decided to make a wine making 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 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.

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. You can see the fun result in Google Earth and satellite images, just search for GPS coordinates 33°36’22.51″S, 69°16’54.79″W.
