Vina Altaïr

Altaïr is the showpiece of the San Pedro Wine Group, Chile's second largest wine producer. The name of this boutique winery is telling: Altaïr is the brightest star in the Eagle constellation, 10 times brighter than the sun, visible in both hemispheres, symbolizing the link between the 'new' and 'old' world.

Altaïr

Altaïr is a single estate, located in Alto Cachapoal, 100 km south of Santiago, at the foot of the Andes, at 600 meters above sea level. Cool nighttime breezes from the Andes very favorably extend the ripening time of the grapes, warmed during the day by the continental winds from the west.

These temperature differences provide more aromas and flavors as well as a natural acidity (rare in new world wines). The vines are planted on a sloping bottom of Andean rubble, consisting of sand, clay and many stones. Thanks to an excellent hygrometry it is an ideal environment to produce top wines, with a good balance between elegance and concentration.
