Michel Torino

Argentina » Cafayate Valley » Michel Torino
The Michel Torino range of wines from Bodega El Esteco, come from the high altitude vineyards of the Calchaqui Valley, located in northwest province of Salta. With vineyards starting at 5,500 feet above sea level and rising to over 6,600 feet, Michel Torino’s wines are unique expressions of the region.

The Calchaqui valley is bordered by 2 mountain ranges – the Quilmes to the west and the Aconquija to the east, creating natural barrier and microclimate. Temperatures in the valley have a wide, thermal amplitude with hot days and cool nights. Plentiful sunshine, more than 330 days a year and limited rainfall, less than 8 inches a year, help to create wines with deep color, rich fruit and crisp acidity.

The Michel Torino Colección range is meant to be the pure expression of the fruit. The Michel Torino Cuma range is made with certified organic grapes, sustainable and Fair for Life. Michel Torino is committed to preserving the natural environment of the Calchaqui Valley.
