About us

The Calchaqui Valley is a hidden gem located in the Northwest of Argentina, at 1000 kilometers North from Mendoza, capable of delivering exceptional wines.

This remote and exquisite desert which only can be reached after a 3 hour drive from Salta city through winding roads, displays a unique terroir making this region wines quite distinctive.

What is so special about the Calchaqui Valley?

High Altitude Vineyards: The Calchaqui Valley is amongst the highest vineyards in the world. Vines grow from 1,700 up to 3,000 meters (5,600 up to 9,800 feet) above sea level.

Intense Character: Due to the high altitude and intense sunlight radiation, Calchaquí wines tend to develop a strong personality, delivering high concentration, accentuated colors, aromas and flavors.

Continental Desert Climate: Surrounded by the Andes and the Aconquija mountain range, the Calchaquí Valley is protected from the humid winds of both the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, allowing healthy vineyards to thrive.

Exclusiveness: Less than 2.5% of Argentine wine production comes from this remote location.

It’s in the heart of the Calchaqui Valley where El Esteco lies. Pioneer in the art of winemaking, this long-living winery together with a hardworking and passionate team, continues to excel developing new wines, gaining international recognitions and positioning the winery as The Iconic Winery of the Calchaqui Valley.
