Cafayate, the most famous region within the Salta in Argentina, is situated within the Calchaquies Valley. The region is not only known for its exceptional wines produced in high-altitude locales, but also the spectacular mountain views that surround it and attract visitors. Grape-growing benefits from warm days and cool nights, plus melting runoff from the mountains and a decent amount of rainfall. Bordeaux oenologist  Michel Rolland is credited for bringing the spotlight to the region and promoting quality viticulture within it. 
 
Malbec is of course, the shining star of reds, along with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Tannat. Whites are produced most commonly with Torrontes, known for its perfumed aroma, fruity palette and refreshing, balanced acidity. Chardonnay is also grown here.
