YACOCHUYA - CAFAYATE - SALTA
In 1988, Dany and Michel Rolland were asked to be consultants to one of the oldest families in the valley of Calchaquie. There they discovered Cafayate, a true paradise for viticulture in the north-west of Argentina and they fell in love with the country, its culture, traditions and its people. It was a ‘coup de coeur’!
These French wine consultants were convinced that unique, outstanding wines could be produced in this mountain region of the Andes foothills.
This extremely beautiful region is situated several hundred kilometres to the south of the Tropic of Capricorn, at 6560 feet altitude and has a very distinctive climate with hot days and cool nights.
Seduced by the remarkable potential of an old Malbec vine perched at an altitude of 6560 feet, Dany and Michel decided to put all their passion and savoir-faire to work with their Argentinean friends to produce the wine called Yacochuya.
