ABOUT TAPIZ ALTA COLLECTION
To celebrate the addition of Jean Claude Berrouet (World famous winemaker from Pomerol) as Consultant Winemaker, Tapiz released the new “Alta Collection” line of wines in 2013. The “Alta Collection” fruit comes from Tapiz's sustainably-farmed estate vineyards in Uco Valley, Mendoza. Chief winemaker Fabian Valenzuela and Jean Claude work together to create a beautiful tapiz (tapestry) between the wine's intense, high- altitude fruit and its oak ageing.
