Sourced from our own vineyards, Cuvée Alexandre wines express our dedication to quality and the expression of the Terroir of Lapostolle Wines.
About the Vineyard
Apalta is located 170 Kilometres South West of Santiago in the Colchagua Valley. The Vineyard is situated on a North to South exposure, which is quite rare in Chile. Its climate could be described as semi- arid Mediterranean; with a winter only rainy season and a long dry summer season.
To express the terroir of Apalta is our mission; so, our winemaking philosophy remains very natural a process with minimal intervention. Our key points are 100% hand harvest in small cases of 14 kilos, strict fruit selection by 100% optical state of the art grape selection.
