The field above Polleras was the Grupo Alta’s first, one of the most important moments in the learning curve for young business partners.

The field gets its name from the peculiarity of the terrain, a hillside that has a gradient of almost 30 meters. Originally table grapes were grown, since in this area there is a microclimate that allows an early harvest in early May. However, now vegetables are produced under shade, namely slicer cucumbers and roma tomato, whose production is now 100% organic.
