Achaval Ferrer is located in the foothills of the Andes in the province of Mendoza, Argentina. The region's desert climate and soil conditions are ideal for the development of Malbec and other red varieties. Low yields, significant thermal gradients (warm days, cool nights), poor alluvial soils, low rainfall, high altitude and the pure Andes irrigation water, all work together to mature grapes that can be transformed into complex, deep and structured wines made by famed winemaker Roberto Cipresso.
