Wine Lover's Guide to Salta

Wine Lover's Guide to Salta

Mendoza might be Argentina’s most famous wine region, but the wild northwestern province of Salta produces some of South America’s unique wines. Here are some of the must-try varietals and tasting experiences in the Salta province.

Must-Try Varietals

The vineyards around Salta are among the highest in the world and the fertile soil and high-altitude microclimate of Cafayate create ideal conditions for growing and producing crisp, acidic varietals. Salta’s flagship wine is Torrontés, a white varietal nicknamed “the liar grape” for its sweet, floral aroma but surprisingly crisp, dry, citrus-like flavor. The region has some fine red wines too, including cabernet sauvignon, Syrah, and malbec, while recent years have seen a number of Tannat wines springing up. 

Must-Do Experiences

  • See regional wonders, including Los Cardones National Park, Cachi, and the Quebrada de Escoipe (Escoipe Gorge) on a full-day tour, stopping for wine tastings along the way.

  • Learn more about Argentine winemaking at Cafayate’s Museo de la Vid y del Vino (Museum of Vine and Wine).

  • Sample malbec, cabernet, and Torrontés wines during a guided wine tasting at a boutique bodega.

  • Meet the winemaker and enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour at Domingo Hermanos, El Tránsito, or Vasija Secreta winery.
