The Wine Route in Tucumán

The wine tourism of the Calchaquíes Valleys has created the Tucuman Wine Route and also a brand that represents producers before the world.

Tucum has been betting on tourism for decades as a source of economic and cultural development. The conditions of its lands and the commitment to wines have made the province specialise in wine tourism. The Wine Route consists of 100 kilometres along a wine-growing area.

The route presents wineries that proudly exhibit their production, offering tastings paired with regional meals. It's a different activity. On the Wine Route we will find high-level accommodation and cultural and gourmet activities. Every time a recreational or sporting event is held in the province, it is hold wine-related events to attract those tourists as well.

Wine tourism is a practice that could be considered young in the province. But the vineyards of the valley come since the sixteenth century and, since the nineteenth century, they were already produced for commercialization.

On the Wine Route the varieties that stand out are Syrah, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Torrontés. The principles of wine tourism have turned each winery into something more than a wine producer. That's why Tucumán created the category of Bodegas Tourists. One of them is the Bodega Río Arena, which offers accommodation and regional food, on the RN 40 km 4295. Bodega Chico Zossi, in RN 40 km 4308, is a family tradition enterprise that produces for the local market and international.

Special Wineries

The Biowinery of Luna Quartz-offers wines that reflect the identity of Colalao del Valle, in RN 40 km 4305. It Winery and Vineyards Las Arcas de Tolombón, in RN 40 km 4313, mix technology with mythology. They are the largest high-end industrial enterprise. Your first label bears the name of the fantastic story of the 7 cows. Estate Albarossa is a boutique hotel with a vineyard plantation. In addition to a beautiful landscape, the estate already has two labels Albarossa torrontés and Albarossa malbec.

An ancestral and sustainable wine

The Bodega Los Amaichas responds to a model of community tourism. Its bottles are Sumaj Kawsay and Kusilla Kusilla, produced by Aboriginal communities and their ancestral secrets. There are only three wineries in the world run by indigenous people, and Tucumana is one of them. Community production employs 40 families in the Calchaquíes Valleys. Its product has the Tucumán brand, they manage 50,000 liters and are recognized by the world.

A recommended combination

Regional gastronomy and the wine tourism go hand in hand. Tucuman empanada is a product of this culture and the region. The best wine for an experience only with empanada is the torrontés. The low freshness of the variety and the floral aroma of wine, together with the heat of a patty with tomato sauce seasoned, make a perfect match.
