A hidden treasure
in the summit of the world
What makes Calchaquí Valleys region so special?
Very simple: it is one of the most beautiful and remarkable places in the world. But it is not all about its breathtaking landscapes, laced by rivers, mountains and valleys; or about its culture, a blend of the most charming Argentine folklore: the Calchaquí Valleys are a gem in the world of winemaking.
In the heart of The Calchaquí Valleys, one of those few places in the world that deserves to be admired more than understood, lies El Esteco. With its nearly 1,000 acres of vineyards, it condenses all the spirit of the region in their fruit.
Standing at an ideal altitude of more than 1,700 meters (5,500 feet) above sea level, with its ever-present sunshine and perfect temperature range, the environment is perfect for the creation of high-end wines.
The birthplace of El Esteco is a secluded location where nature and vineyards meet and create a únique atmosphere for wine tasting.
