Bodega Tukma – High Altitude Wines
Long before the Spaniards arrived, the valleys and canyons of the Tukmanao, now Northwest Argentina, was the land of the Diaguitas.
The Diaguitas extremely sophisticated farming techniques were improved by the influence of the conquering Incas and later applied to the care of the vine brought by the Spaniards for the production of wine.
Almost 500 years later, from Tolombón, in the heart of the Tukmanao, our winery seeks to embrace the roots of the region with wines of unmistakable identity and unique characteristics
HIGH ALTITUDE VINEYARDS are considered those above 1700 m a.s.l. (5600 feet), where the soil is shallow, stony, with little organic matter, over 320 days a year of sunshine and clear skies optimize a unique terroir to grow the grapes that deliver the deep colors, tannins, fragrances and intense aromas to our wines.
