At over 2200 meters above sea level near the picturesque villages of Molinos and Seclantas in the province of Salta Argentina, the vineyards at La Banda Grande are amongst the highest in the world. The vines grown at this altitude are of the finest quality and much sought after because of their abundant textures and flavours for making big wines.
Within the 30.000 hectares that forms Estancia La Banda Grande, we have carefully selected 100 hectares of land suitable for vineyards and wish to invite, wine loving like minded people to join us and acquire your very own vineyard, capable of producing excellent grapes. These are essential for making the finest wines that will be enjoyed by family and friends for a long time to come.
Wines produced by La Banda Grande’s own winemaker Raul ”Yeye” Davalos nearby at Bodega Tacuil and those of our neighbours at Bodega Colome are being exported to more than 25 countries and many have been rated by Robert Parker (The Wine Advocate) above 92 points.
Besides your own vineyard you will for sure enjoy the marvelous landscapes of the famous Calchaqui Valleys where the sun shines over 330 days per year and the air you breathe is as clean as it was hundreds of years ago.
Tomatoes and other fruits and vegetables still have the real taste they were originally meant to have because they are picked just before being served.
A forestry plan including 2,000 trees is now being planted in close cooperation with the Foundation Nature for the Future to ensure maximising the sustainability of La Banda Grande. When you come to La Banda Grande you will soon see why all the people who stay here are so unusually relaxed.
