Alhambra by Finca Abril Valle di Uco
About Finca Abril
Finca Abril is a family-owned company founded in 1996 which achieves the project of producing limited editions of high quality wines that represent the absolute expression of the vineyard terroir. The project was inspired by a small part of an old farm in the Uco Valley – Mendoza- Argentina with vineyards planted in 1922 and perched at a high altitude of more than 3,400 feet above sea level.
Excellent vineyards, suitable soils, wide temperature range, sustainable natural treatment of vines, low yields, hand-harvests, strict monitoring, careful barrel aging and care, are the principles that define the quality of the wines that Finca Abril produces every year.
The winery is located more than a thousand meters above sea level, in the heart of their vineyards, it combines tradition with modernity. Its technology contrasts with the classic and simple architecture which resembles the old wine cellars from Mendoza. It has spacious rooms adequate for each task. In our underground caves, under ideal room conditions, in silence and half-light, their wines rest and wait for the right moment to be offered to those who wish to share them.
Alhambra wines represent the entry level for Finca Abril, but do not stand apart. The wines are driven by the terroir of the same two estate vineyards as the “Finca Abril” wines: Altimara and La Consulta. The selection for Alhambra focuses on the younger vines and the vinification is the same. The Alhambra wines rest in used French oak barrels for 12 months.
