Route of the Wine in Cafayate

U$ 106,00

Highlights:

  • Cafayate:
    This is a town located at the central zone of the Calchaquíes Valleys in the province of Salta, Argentina. It lies at 1,683 meters above sea level (5,529 ft) and it is an important touristic centre from where visitors can explore the Calchaquíes Valleys and the different wine cellars located in the area.
  • The Shells Gorge (Quebrada de las Conchas):
    Made up of fascinating multi-coloured rock formations, this area was covered by a huge inland sea, ninety million years ago. Carved into weird and wacky shapes by wind, rain, cold and heat, the red, pink, brown and sometimes blue shades are due to varying levels of copper and iron found in the rocks.

Description:

The journey starts from Salta city to the south, through route 68 traversing the Lerma Valley and its historical towns. We reach Quebrada de las Conchas (the Shell´s Gorge), where wind and water erosion carved curious shapes on the rocks (The Amphitheater, Devil´s throat, The Toad, The Castles, among others). When we arrive to Cafayate, we visit some wineries, famous for their production of Torrontes, with special characteristics due to the particularities of the climate and land.

Then we visit the Museum of Vine and Wine, and two wineries to taste their wines.

After lunch we return to Salta through Quebrada de las Conchas (the Shells´ Gorge) and the Lerma Valley.
