Cafayate

We tend to our vines at an altitude of 1,750 meters above sea level in a unique and privileged region. In the province of Salta, Argentina, 180 km south of the capital, lies this region with an extreme desert climate, offering warm days and cool nights, very little rainfall and plentiful sunlight, with vineyards planted between 1,700 and 2,500 meters above sea level.

Cafayate is a small, isolated valley with very special characteristics—its desert climate and poor soils benefit the production of high quality grapes, making it easy to practice integrated, sustainable and organic viticulture.

The principal factor influencing the vines is the day-night temperature variation, due to the altitude, which allows the grapes to become very concentrated and at the same time very ripe, resulting in wines with smooth, round tannins.

Cafayate gives us this unique terroir, and we contribute the most important thing: family.
