Bodega Colomé, the oldest winery in Argentina, and one of the highest vineyards in the world was founded in 1831 in the Calchaqui Valley. In 2001 it was bought by Swiss entrepreneurs Donald and Ursula Hess who became enamoured with the prospect of producing top quality wines at extreme altitudes. Operations are currently led by their daughter Larissa and her husband Christoph, who alongside French born Winemaker Thibaut Delmotte are committed to the estate’s fully biodynamic farming practices and have created a collection of distinct and complex award winning wines that represent the perfect harmony between the unique terroir of the Calchaqui Valley and the Malbec grapes historically grown there.
