This Vineyard is an extraordinary place, with an impressive landscape. No man had put his hands to work on these lands. The producers of Paraje Altamira drew the border where the stone allowed them. They used to cultivate on the flattest and
less stony areas, close to the town of La Consulta, because moving south and west meant entering the heart of the highest part of the alluvial fan of the Tunuyán river and to fight against the stone. We get there by intuition, driven by the land-
scape. And we face that fight, with energy, but also being humble and knowing that we were facing something infinite.
There were more than a thousand trucks full of stone that we had to move, to make room for the vines. It was the first step of a challenging path. Because cultivating this vineyard involves studying, working, knowing each row, each stone. To tire-
lessly explore its enormous diversity in order to interpret it through wine. Finca Piedra Infinita is a Malbec, which is built with a careful selection of farm plots that grow on shallower soils, so abundant on this farm. It is a real mountain wine.
