Alamos comes from the family’s younger vineyards in the best areas of mendozas higher-lying vineyards: la consulta tupungato lunlunta and agrelo. Nicolas catena will appear as the one that founded argentina’s modern wine history. He is a graduate economist and worked as a visiting professor in california before returning to argentina convinced that if you could make good wine in california you should be able to do the same in argentina. He took over a bulk wine company which his grandfather founded when he immigrated from italy. Nicolas sold the entire bulk fraud and retained the small part intended to make quality wines. ‘completamente loco’ – completely crazy – was what was said by everyone. And that did not get better when he began to plant vineyards far over 1 000 moh! But catenas bet was not wrong at all. He researched and experimented – something he still does together with her daughter laura and the breakthrough could not wait for her. – alamos
