Ancient recollections, magical landscapes

Salta (which means "the most beautiful"), offers a variety of landscapes of singular beauty: the desert of the Puna, with its typical flora and fauna; the jungles, with their aboriginal settlements; the high Andean peaks, and the colorful valleys, are but a portion of this vast province. The viticultural area is to be found in the Calchaqui Valleys, a privileged area thanks to its natural beauty and the cultural richness inherited from its Diaguita-Calchaqui past, part of the Inca empire. Wineries offering stop-overs, boutique hotels, inns and a wine spa provide a wide choice of lodgings. The cordiality of its people, the genuiness of its cuisine, the ancient settlements with their artisans, all complete a most attractive tourist package.

Between the sun, adobe and silence

This is formed by the provinces of Jujuy, Salta, Catamarca, Tucuman and Santiago del Estero. Wine tourism is concentrated in Salta. And to a lesser degree Catamarca, but it should be noted that in both Jujuy and Tucuman small patches of vineyards are to be found.

The Calchaqui valleys, situated at some 1,700m above sea level, represent the main wine producing areas, especially Cafayate. In the midst of mountains and valleys full of colour, small patches of vineyards produce wines of incredible strength and character, unique in their style.

Like its neighbours Salta and La Rioja, Catamarca possesses a rugged mountain landscape, with ancient and impressive volcanoes and valleys which concentrate the population and their cultivations. The valley of Fiambala, situated 300 km to the east of the capital, is the main grape producer. The other productive oases is also in the east, in the Calchaqui Valley. Wineries are largely concerned with making fine wines. The climate, almost desertic, is a great ally in the production of produce of fine flavour and excellent health, almost ecological.

PRE-COLOMBIAN RUINS

The north of Argentina is where most of its ancient cultures are to be found. This is reflected in its music, religious festivities, food and popular mythology. The aboriginal inhabitants have left innumerable traces throughout the territory of Salta. It is thus that constantly, and in almost all parts, (including vineyards), traces of ancient pottery, flint arrow tips, mortars and ancient cultivation terraces are found.

THE RICHES OF THE VALLEY PEOPLE

In addition to making wine, the Calchaqui valleys concentrate the oldest indigenous villages of the province, founded in the XVII and XVIII centuries, and still preserving a great part of their original structures, notable for their adobe construction and low roofs, the picturesque churches with their belfries and furniture made with cardon, (a local cactus). Cachi, Molinos, Seclantas, San Antonio, Tolombon are a few of these valley towns situated in full mountain terrain, and of great tourist interest.
