Colome was farmed for thousand of years by the native population who were excellent stewards of the land. The original Indio language in Ihe Cakhaqul Valley was "Kakan"; but at the end of the 15th century the Incas entered the valley. Since then, the dialect spoken in the valley has been "Quechua". In 1549, Calchaqui Valley was first occupied by the Spanish conquistadores but they encountered stiff resistance from the native population. 90 years later the Spanish succeeded expropriating the native population. As the tale goes, the native tribe chief Colomln received vines from the Spanish conquistadores in the late 16th century for good services rendered. The old Colomi winery was founded in 1831. probably by the Spanish Governor of Salta, Nicolas Severo de Isasmendi y Echalar. His daughter Ascencion, who married Jose Benjamin Davalos, introduced in 1854 from France pre-phylloxera Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon wines to Colome. Three vineyards of 10 acres/ 4 hectares, dating from this time still produce grapes. Colome is considered the oldest existing winery in Argentina. Read less

Brillantes Goldgelb. Frische, blumige Note, erinnert zudem an Honig und Rosen, im Hintergrund Zitronen und Grapefruit. Die Aromen bestätigen sich auf dem Gaumen. Der Wein zeigt eine reiche Fülle. Anhaltend.

87 Points - Wine SpectatorFresh and floral, with light lime and mineral notes checking in as well. Very elegant, but still shows more definition than most Torrontés. Drink now.

Argentina's most popular white is adeptly grown and made by this killer winery in the northwestern province of Salta. A maritime influenced cooler climate and extremely high altitude plantings enables this torrontes to develop a deliciously crisp dry and long flavor profile.
