The winery and vineyards of Altocedro are located in the premier region of La Consulta, Valle de Uco, Mendoza. Winemaker and owner Karim Mussi Saffie uses sustainable growing practices to produce limited amounts of terroir-driven wines. The vines range up to 100 years of age. All harvesting, sorting, and crushing are done in individual batches by hand. Fermentation occurs either in small cement tanks or in barrels, and the extract is done with a gravity flow system developed at the winery over 100 years ago. Altocedro has become synonymous with outstanding La Consulta wine.

Usually found in the regions of Spain, namely Rioja, Tempranillo is also skillfully grown in Argentina where it expresses the terroir of the high altitude vineyards of La Consulta, Valle de Uco, Mendoza. Medium to full bodied the wine boast intense flavours of red cherries and ripe tomatoes, other flavours found include vanilla, smoke and a touch of spice.
