Agustín Lanús having worked in wineries in many of the key regions of the world, in 2006 he turned his attention to the specific goal of learning more about the unique micro-terroirs found at the extreme altitudes of the Salta region. These terroirs, ranging from 1,650 to 3,100 metres above sea level and include the highest vineyards in the world. By contrast, the highest commercial vineyards in Europe are found at 1,300 metres
