Our estates, are natural allies
Finca Bella Vista
On the bank of Mendoza river, sheltered by olive trees and always guarded by estate workers and visitors alike, Bella Vista delights in any spot. In addition to producing one of the world’s top Malbec, the own-rooted vines have stood vigorously for 100 years. Visit our estate, and you’ll be strolling along a natural museum of viticulture monuments.

For almost a century, Finca Mirador stands in the central-west region of Mendoza. While Malbec vineyards extend over the land, quince and olive trees, as well as rosemary gracefully decorate the surroundings.

The estate is lined by old chestnut trees that bring a singular beauty to this 1925 small vineyard. Altamira was awarded five Decanter stars for the limited-edition wine under the same name, Finca Altamira 15°, making Achaval Ferrer the first Argentine winery to obtain this recognition.

Guardians of a legacy
In days when the old was quickly replaced by the new, Achaval Ferrer decided to preserve the legacy of time. Today, the legacy is still treasured. Keeping the DNA of centennial vines intact and combining wisdom with passion, we create wines that express the magic of the exceptional terroir they come from. That’s what we do, because no one is more experienced than time or wiser than nature.
Respect for the terroir and minimum intervention
Since its origins, the winery has followed a clear pathway traced by commitment with and respect for nature. Achaval Ferrer bases its winemaking on fundamental pillars and a minimal intervention principle from the vine to the wine.
Ours are centennial, own-rooted vines, extremely low in yield; they’re historical monuments to viticulture located on sun-drenched mountainsides irrigated by rivers Tunuyán and Mendoza. These are natural, privileged sites carefully treated to obtain the purest and most honest messages our soils can convey.
