Estancia Los Cardones, located in the Northernmost Winegrowing Region of Argentina
Nestled in the northernmost winegrowing region of picturesque Salta province, Estancia Los Cardones Winery located in Tolombón, near Cafayate. The orientation of the vineyards, situated in the steep slopes of Calchaquí Valley, is unique and offers a splendid location for the cultivation of various grape varieties.
Estanica Los Cardones Reflect the Unique Characteristics of the Tolombón Terroir
Years ago, Alejandro Sejanovich and Jeff Mausbach undertook a project which has become a successful winery and true champion in Argentinian viticulture. Officially established in 2017, the wines of Estancia Los Cardones reflect the unique characteristics of the Tolombón terroir. Although the vineyard activities in Salta are now decades old, Estancia Los Cardones uses the grapes from the plants first planted in 2009. The cellar of the estate is constructed entirely out of stone extracted from the quarries surrounding the vineyards.
The walls of the Estancia Los Cardones are beautifully carved, which denotes the old winemaking traditions of the region.
