Bodega Colomé was established in 1831 in the Upper Calchaquí Valley in Salta in the far north of Argentina.
Not only is it the oldest winery in Argentina, but also has the world’s highest vineyard.
Located in the Upper Calchaquí Valleys in Salta in the far north of Argentina, the winery is thought to have been founded by the Spanish Governor of Salta, Nicolás Severo de Isasmendi y Echalar.
In 1854, his daughter Ascensión, who was married to José Benjamín Dávalos, brought the first French pre-phylloxera Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon vines to Colomé.
Grapes from three vineyards (four hectares each) planted in that year are still used to make wines.
Bodega Colomé has been a part of the Hess Family Estates since 2001 and is run with the same dedication to quality, sustainability and social responsibility as the other Hess Estates.
Currently there are 140 hectares planted at altitudes of 2,300-3,111 metres above sea level. Grapes grown at high altitudes have thicker skins to protect themselves from intense ultra violet rays.
As a result Colome Estate Torrontes has more aroma, flavours and anti-oxidants from increased phenolics.
The altitude also contributes to a wide day to night temperature range of more than 20°C. The warmth of the day ripens the grapes and the coolness of the night preserves acidity.
The climate here is dry with very little rainfall, on average around 120mm per year. Soils are sandy with layers of gravel which aid drainage. The vineyards are all farmed biodynamically.
