About Altamente Vinos

Altamente Vinos is a family project that combines passion, experience, and roots in its search to extract the best of Monastrell grapes.
To that end, the winery selects the best Monastrell grapes from organic vineyards with Pie Franco. Located in a 900 meters high valley over shallow and calcareous soil and under a mountain climate influenced by the Mediterranean Sea, conditions are perfect for the production of the highest quality wine: elegant, well-balanced, and highly fruity. In short, Monastrell in its purest form.

About the Vineyards

The vineyards are located at 900 meters above sea level in a valley formed by two mountain ranges of 1,000 and 1,100 m high. The distances to the mountains are 0-700 m. The yield production is very low. Yields per hectare are between 2,000 and 4,000 under rain-fed. The plants are in Gobelet pruning, so the grape-picking of the harvest is made by hand, with total respect for the natural environment of the valley. Almost 80% of the vineyard is with Pie Franco (without American root) and the age average of the vines is around 30 years old.

100% of the vineyards are bio certified, immersed in a beautiful landscape full of biodiversity: almond trees, olive trees, wild bushes… Only one preventive treatment with sulfur per year is enough to keep the crop healthy. You can find hares, partridges, quails, wild boars, eagles, hawks, finches, sparrows, larks…

About the Soil

It is a calcareous, sandy, and stony soil very poor in nutrients. However, this soil’s great water-holding capacity retains what little water it receives, essential for this rainfed crop. The soil depth is shallow −around 0.5-0.6 m; the planting is done at 0.8 m depth. The land is shared by holly, thyme, rosemary, thistle, wicker, Aleppo pine, juniper, savin juniper, lavender, almonds, olives…
