Situated high on the slopes of the Helderberg mountain, the history of Alto dates back to 1693. Key to the production of world-class reds the Latin name refers both to the aspirations of the estate and its altitude. Alto has been world renowned for its hand crafted, bold red wines since 1922 when the first shipment of Alto Rouge was received in London to a rapturous response.
