    Winemaker Notes

    Yellow with bright greenish tonalities. There is good character on the nose of this fruity and fresh wine. Intense and elegant with aromas of flowers like roses, along with nice citrus notes. Fresh, young, and fruity on the palate. Good structure, balanced and with a very nice acidity.

    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.

    Argentina

    The Salta region in northern Argentina is home to world’s highest vineyards. Near the town of Payogasta, the Colomé Altura Máxima vineyard is planted at 10,206 feet in elevation.

    Salta is part of the Calchaquí Valley, which benefits from more than 300 days of sun per year, subjecting its vines to considerable ultraviolet radiation. The valley experiences strong high altitude winds, even in the “lower” vineyards, which are planted at 5,413 feet. Because of these elevations and resulting extreme conditions, vines produce lower yields and thicker-skinned grapes, resulting in concentrated, aromatic and well-structured wines.

    In a truly unique region, the highly aromatic variety, Torrontes, thrives; intense sun exposure allows full ripening, while cooling winds maintain the grapes’ acidity levels and phenolic balance.

    Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Bonarda, Syrah, and, particularly, Tannat have the most potential among reds.

    Upscale hotels, beautiful colonial architecture, a majestic Andean backdrop and impressive food and wine make the area attractive among tourists as well.

    Salta is the fourth most important Argentine wine-producing region after Mendoza, San Juan, and La Rioja. Its oldest vineyards were planted in 1862.

    Unapologetically fun and distinctively fragrant, Torrontés is regarded as the signature white grape of Argentina. In many ways it bears a striking resemblance to Muscat (and in fact is an offspring of Muscat of Alexandria). Sommelier Secret—If you’re in search of a new summer sipper, look no further than Torrontés. These wines are always inexpensive, delightfully refreshing and are best enjoyed in the sunny outdoors at a picnic, poolside or on the porch.
