Hey guys, we’re back with another video and this one is going to be all about wine tasting in northern Argentina! So, after spending a couple of days exploring the province of Tucumán, we travelled even further north to the province of Salta. First up, was the town of Cafayate, which is a wine-producing region in the Calchaquí Valleys. Here we planned two back-to-back days of wine tastings and visiting local vineyards.

In this video, we’ll take you to two wineries that came highly recommended: Bodega Piatelli and Bodega El Esteco.

Bodega Piatelli is a short 15-minute drive from the town of Cafayate. It is situated at the foot of the mountains and has beautiful views all around. They have an on-site restaurant that is heavy on the BBQ and also features some regional specialities. We couldn’t get a table just randomly showing up on a Sunday, but that didn’t stop us from ordering a bottle of wine and enjoying some appetizers al fresco.

When it comes to wine tastings, this bodega offers two different options: you can try 7 reserve wines for 300 pesos, or 5 grand reserve wines for 380. We opted for the latter and at the time of our visit that was the equivalent of about $6 USD.

First, we went on a tour of the winery and even got a peek at their cellar, and later on, we got to taste their wines. We tried a mix of whites, rosés and reds including a couple of high altitude wines.

The following day, we visited Bodega El Esteco. This property is located right on the edge of town, and since Cafayate is a very small town, that means you can easily walk there. Our plan was to order a bottle of wine and enjoy a nice lunch. Thankfully, we were able to get a table this time!

We ordered one of their Malbecs and paired it with empanadas, fettuccini and a gourmet burger for Sam. The food and the wine were exquisite! This winery also has a wine hotel on-site, so there's an idea for anyone visiting.

Mendoza may get all the fame, but the province of Salta has its own wine region and they make some great wines! So if you find yourself travelling in northern Argentina, don't forget to make time for a wine tasting or two.
