Set in the North Eastern Province of Salta, Cafayate is the Mendoza Wine Region’s lesser known cousin.

This area of the the country produces some fantastic wines and with more of a rural feel then Mendoza, stays here can give one the sense of being wonderfully carefree. Fast becoming known as the Tuscany of Argentina, Cafayate is a hidden gem and the perfect destination on one of our Argentina tours if you are looking to experience a more relaxed way of life.

The higher altitude, dry climate and rugged landscape make a picture post-card setting from which to enjoy a fine glass of the local torrentes (the grape for which this region is famed).

Speak to one of our experts about arranging private wine tastings; hikes through the imposing rock formations of the local quebradas; and explorations of nearby indigenous ruins on one of our bespoke Argentina tours.
