    Winemaker Notes

    Very deep ruby with violet hues. Almost intransparent. Explosive aromas of black and red fruits, with lavender and rosemary notes, as well as oaky aromas. Intense flavors of juicy fruits, very full bodied with high acidity, rich structure, velvety tannins and long finish.

    El Porvenir de Cafayate Winery Video
    El Porvenir de Cafayate is a small, family owned winery located in Cafayate (North West of Argentina), in the province of Salta - a 3 hour drive from the town of Salta, through a mountainous area known as Quebrada de Cafayate. The Romero family bought the property in 2000. They built their house in the middle of an old vineyard called Finca El Retiro and bought and planted more land through the years. The family’s vineyards are situated at an incredible 5,740 feet above sea level, in a highly unique and privileged grape growing region. Like Mendoza, Cafayate benefits from a large day-to-night temperature fluctuation and extremely low rainfall and humidity. Desert climate and poor soil favor the production of high quality grapes. The winery is run by Lucia Romero-Marcuzzi, with winemaker Mariano Quiroga Adamo (who joined her in 2010), agronomist Santiago Bugallo and wine consultant Paul Hobbs. Her team is dedicated to crafting small quantities of exceptional wines with an annual production limited to approximately 17,000 cases. Like all great winemakers, the family believes that quality begins in the vineyards, and so maintains fanatical control and care throughout the process, from planting to manual harvest. This care continues in the winery, which is gravity-flow, and through the wine’s aging in French and American oak barrels. The result is some of the highest quality wine coming out of Argentina today.

    Cafayate Valley Wine

    Salta, Argentina

    View all products

    Home to some of Argentina’s best Torrontes, the Cafayate Valley’s rugged, high-altitude vineyards are part of the Calchaquies Valley in northwestern Argentina. Here, this Argentine white variety is able to achieve optimal ripeness while maintaining a higher than average acidity; its wines are typically full-bodied, dry to off-dry and alluringly aromatic.

    In the Cafayate Valley, summers are warm and while most rainfall happens in these months, it isn’t enough to supply to the vineyards with enough water for the entire year. Snowmelt provides a fresh water source for irrigation in these arid and extreme conditionss.

    Celebrated for its bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec has enjoyed runaway success in Argentina since the late 20th century. The grape originated in Bordeaux, France, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. A French agronomist, who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. Somm Secret—If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet with its combination of dense fruit and soft tannins.
