Salta

Salta is located at 26° 23’ latitude south and 68°33’ longitude west.
The most outstanding wine region is Cafayate, in the so
-called
Calchaquíes Valleys, and it concentrates 70% of the vineyards in
the Valley. It has more than 7,900 acres of vineyards, 99% of
which are devoted to the production of fine wines. The grape

growing area starts at an altitude of 4,900 feet above sea level and
extends beyond altitudes of 6,500 feet to reach 10,210 feet high,
which makes this the highest grape
-growing region in the world.
One of its most outstanding wines is Torrontés Riojano, a very
fruity wine which is considered to be the finest expression of this
province.

Cafayate possesses a special climate, suitable for the plantation of
grapevines. Its vineyards have sunlight exposure during almost
every day of the year. Located over 1700 meters above sea level,
this region has sandy-loam soils made from thick grains with
gravel and fine sands on the surface. These characteristics are
similar to the layers of subsoil but with fractions of finer sand
located deeper and with the presence of round stone.

It has mild, amenable weather with pronounced thermal amplitude.
The latter causes plants to relax during the night and continue
synthesizing colour mater, aromas and flavours. This makes up for
wines of excellent colour, intense aromas and lively flavours with
mature tannins. Both white and red varieties stand out for their
fruitiness, as well as for their varietal authenticity.
