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.
Sourced entirely from estate vineyards high in Argentina’s northwest Andes. This extreme elevation lends itself perfectly to organic viticulture. Hot days, cool nights, lack of rainfall and a dry shallow soil allow for minimal human interference to the natural growth cycle of the vines.
Both practices in the vineyards and the winery have followed strictly certified organic processes. In the vineyards, the fertilisers are waste of sheep, ants are fought with diatom earth and weed control is with machetes, all of them are natural elements. In the winery the sulphur levels are lower than with conventional wines. The expression of the wine is empowered, flavours and tastes are more intense, fresher and more natural. The grape expresses itself in the most genuine way.
