Salta, Argentina

Salta is the most northerly of the vineyard areas in Argentina, closely bordering the country of Bolivia. Due to how far north it lies, Salta has some of the highest vineyards in the world. These vineyard sites can be well over 3000 meters above sea level producing wines of elegance with a strong concentration, purity, and welcoming minerality. Here you’ll find Torrontés as the main grape variety, which boasts highly aromatized white wines. In the Cafayate region of Salta you will also unearth lovely wines made from Malbec, Tannat, and Cabernet Sauvignon.  

The dos minas (“two chicks” in Argentine slang) of the name are Lucía Romero, who runs Bodega El Porvenir de los Andes in Cafayate, Argentina, and Heather Willens, who came to Buenos Aires via California and has experience working with small wineries in Argentina. Both are champions of wines from the mystical desert landscapes of Cafayate, and both believe that Torrontés is a wonderfully aromatic, food-friendly wine that is among the best of what Argentina has to offer to the world.
