    Sumak Kawsay is a very small scale community project and only 3,000 bottles of the 2016 were made. And we've got some!

    Made from 40 small vineyards owned by members of the Los Amaichas indigenous community in Amaicha del Valle, a dramatic desert setting high in the Andes mountains, 2,200 meters above sea level.

    An intensely aromatic wine with scents of cherry, dried fruits and graphite, with notes of honey and chocolate from long barrel aging. Bottled unfined and unfiltered or clarified to retain purity of the fruit.

  • In 2006 Agustin Lanus travelled to the upper Calchaqui Valley Argentina for the first time with the specific goal of learning more about the unique micro-terroirs found at extreme altitudes. These terroirs, ranging from 1,650 to 3,100 meters above sea level, host some of the highest vineyards in the world. “Many say that driving 9 hours into the mountains on dangerous dirt roads just to check on our grapes is crazy, but then they try the wine and they understand.” - Agustín Lanús
