About the winery:
20-year-old Sebastiano Accorrà, known as Tiano, and 18-year-old Nazzarreno Savina known as Nareno left their native Italy in 1908 and arrived in the region of Mendoza, a land where vines had been cultivated at the foot of the imposing Andean Mountains for hundreds of years.
Tiano and Nareno devoted their lives to working the land and growing vines. They were passionate about tradition and had a great love for work well done. The land, climate and vines of Mendoza held no secrets for them. It took over five years to identify and select the region’s best plots of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, the very same plots that Tiano and Nareno loved so much and talked of so often.
With only 880 magnums produced in 2010, this is truly Argentina’s best kept secret that Altaya Wines has newly introduced to the world of wine lovers.
