The Malbec Specialists

In 1995 Alberto Antonini, a well-known Tuscan winemaker, and Antonio Morescalchi, a young entrepreneur, took a trip to visit the burgeoning wine areas of South America. It only took one stop to find what they were looking for. They were immediately impressed by the vineyards thriving in the high altitude and dry climate of Mendoza, Altos Las Hormigas was born..

How They Got Their Name

When the vineyards were planted ants loved to feed on the tender sprouts of the newly-planted young vines, often reducing months of man labor to nothing. The workers refused to poison the ants and started looking for natural ways to deflect their attention. During this time they commented that the ants were the “real” owners of the land and seemed to cover enormous ground and accomplish great tasks despite their miniscule size. In Argentina there is a saying: “un trabajo de hormigas” or “a job for ants” which describes a humble, patient, and dedicated work. The winery decided to name their venture after the hard-working, team-playing ‘hormiga’, which is emblematic of Altos Las Hormigas’ history and has become a symbol of good luck.
