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.
