About Alto Almanzora:

From the ancient mountains of AndalucĂ­a - land that has been cultivated throughout history by Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans and Muslims - lies this categorically modern winery with state of the art facilities and stunning architecture. Este is represented by a pregnant mare - a symbol of fertility that has blessed the estate's fields for thousands of years. Consulting Winemaker Rafael Palacios' skillful hand working behind the scenes is abundantly clear - a stunning wine for an even more stunning price.
