The best-kept secret in Argentine wines is the cool climate area of the Patagonian Steppe. Alto Limay was started as a joint project between Paul Hobbs Imports and Familia Schroeder, both of whom shared the same interest in exploring, developing and unraveling the potential of the Patagonia Pinot Noir. Paul wholeheartedly believes that Pinot Noir will create a promising future for winemaking in this frontier winemaking region, where the short, cool and sunny growing season is perfectly suited for the grape varietal. Youthful and fresh, nuanced and expressive, Alto Limay produces a Pinot Noir that is truly unlike any other of its kind.
Alto Limay vineyards are situated 380 miles south of Mendoza in San Patricio del Chañar, a town that resides in the province of Neuquén. The namesake Limay River joins the Neuquén River to form the Río Negro, which flows to the Atlantic Ocean and separates Patagonia from the Pampas. The pristine Alto Limay, fed by Andes mountain snowmelt, benefits from unique grape-growing conditions in this region of Patagonia.
