Alto Limay

Alto Limay is the collaboration between Paul Hobbs Selections and Familia Schroeder to develop Patagonia Pinot Noir. This frontier winegrowing region, with short, sunny summers and low vigor soils is perfectly suited for Pinot Noir. The consistently windy conditions requires poplar tree windbreaks on all sides of each block and leads to thick-skinned berries with deep color and rich aromatics that yield expressive and nuanced wines.

Winery Details

Region
Patagonia, Argentina

Vineyards
Located in San Patricio del Chañar in the province of Neuquén, 380 miles south of Mendoza at 1,100 feet elevation.

Terroir
The sandy, silty soils are strewn with pebbles and rocks, on a base of limestone bedrock. The constant wind and well-drained soils contribute to the high evaporation rates that keep the yields naturally low. The Limay River brings snowmelt from the Andes, creating the only farming conditions in this otherwise desertic part of Patagonia.
