About the Anko Winery
Anko means “high water” in the native Indian language of Salta, located in the northwest corner of Argentina. Wine Enthusiast quoted Anko winemaker Jeff Mausbach as follows: “Salta is a land of extremes—extreme beauty, extreme altitude, extreme sunlight. These extremes make for a singular expression of Malbec—powerful, structured wines with a savory minerality that is very different from other regions in Argentina.” In this rugged, mountainous desert, an “Anko,” or high altitude oasis, was treasured as a precious sanctuary, protection from the harsh elements of nature. Our estate vineyards in Estancia Los Cardones, named for the area’s majestic cacti which can grow as tall as 30 feet, are indeed an oasis amid the surrounding jagged landscape. The winemakers and co-owners are Jeff Mausbach and Alejandro “Colo” Sejanovich; the other co-owners are the Saavedra Azcona family.
