Built as if money and space were no object, this upscale, over-the-top, US-owned winery is 3km from Cafayate. Tours show you three levels of relatively small-scale but state-of-the-art winemaking equipment and culminate in a long tasting of seven wines. There's an on-site restaurant that serves delicious lunches. Tours can be bilingual upon request.
