TeHo means “Blood of the Earth” in Mendoza’s native Huarpe language. For TeHo, we isolate each vineyard soil type to manage, harvest, and vinify separately. Four different lots go into the TeHo wines: sandy soils with floral aromatics are co-fermented with Cabernet Franc; rocky soils with stony minerality is all Malbec; silty soils for dark fruit profile are co-fermented with Petit Verdot for additional structure; a small lot of Petit Verdot from rocky soils is co-fermented with Malbec. This process of managing the micro-terroirs of each soil type makes TeHo the “blood of the earth” from Paraje Altamira.
100% from estate 10 acre Paraje Altamira vineyard planted in 1955. Less than 0.5 kilo production per plant. From co-winemakers and co-owners Alejandro “Colo” Sejanovich and Jeff Mausbach.
