  • Calchaquíes Valleys

    The origin of mountain high wines.

    The northwest region in Argentina is a geographically wide region. It is located between latitude 22° and 29° south. It covers the South of the province of Jujuy, part of the provinces of Salta, Catamarca and La Rioja and the northeast of Tucumán. Growing grapes finds its better expression in the irrigated valleys in The Andes, which altitude goes between 1 .000 and 2.000 over sea level, such as Cafayate in Salta, Santa María and Tinogasta in the province of Catamarca and Chilecito in La Rioja.

    Despite the great latitude difference that the region presents, the growing is concentrated on the valleys. The Calchaquíes Valleys is the most well known region, it is a group of deep valleys, at a high altitude that belongs to the mountain chain at the west of Salta. This region represents the 5,70% of the wineries territory of the country.

    It has a template weather, great temperature amplitude and extraordinary atmospheric diaphaneity, long summers and occasionally cold afternoons in spring.

    The soils is generally sandy-loam with an elevated proportion of fine sand, it is deep with a rocky subsoil that guarantees an excellent permeability and leaching of unwanted salts.

    The irrigation water comes mainly from the Calchaquí and Santa María river and numerous streams of water effluents of those collectors. It also gets the water from the underground thru perforations All this conditions make Valles Calchaquíes, where the Quebrada de las Flechas winery is located, a promising place for producing excellent quality wines.
