One of the highest wineries in the world, Colome sits in the Upper Calchaquí valleys further into the foothills than Cafayate and ranging from 2,300 to 3,111 meters above sea level. Founded some 180 years ago, Colome is one of the oldest-running wineries in Argentina.
Colome may be historical, but the modern ownership keeps the ship running tight and producing solid Torrontes and altitude reds. Owned by the Hess family, the winery’s production is headed up by French winemaker Thibaut Delmotte.
As expected from the region, their Torrontes is top-notch but you should also seek out some their reds to get a flavour of Malbec at altitude. Colome’s vineyards are all biodynamic and organic.
