A Glass of Facts

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.
