The renowned Catena family began making Alamos in 1993. Its name is derived from the poplar trees that line the high altitude vineyards of Mendoza, Argentina (Alamos means "poplar" in Spanish) and protect the vineyards from the mountain winds.
The Alamos winemaking philosophy is to produce flavorful, approachable wines that preserve each varietal’s distinctive aroma, flavor and texture. Yields are kept low and all the vineyards are hand harvested. The wines receive moderate oak aging from a mixture of both French and American oak, depending on varietal and vintage.
Talented winemaker Felipe Stahlschmidt is committed to producing "Malbecs that are rich, exuberant and full of character."
