Estancia and Bodega Colomé

Colomé was farmed for thousands of years by native Indians who were excellent stewards of the land. As the tale goes, the Indian chief Colomin received vines from the Spanish conquistadores in the late 16th Century for good services rendered. The old Colomé winery was founded in 1831, probably by the last Spanish governor of Salta, Nicolás Severo de Isasmendi y Echalar. In 1854, his daughter Ascensión, married José Benjamín Dávalos, and introduced pre-phylloxera Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon vines to Colomé from France. Three vineyards dating from this time still produce grapes. Colomé is considered the oldest working winery in Argentina.

Finca Colome has only 7 suites in total, each charmingly decorated and with striking views of the surrounding countryside. Accommodation is based on full board and includes full use of the estancia's facilities, including a meditation and yoga room, swimming pool, tennis court, and walking trails. Indulge yourself in Finca Colome with the fabulous local wine and home-cooked food in this wonderful setting.

Staff Comment - We have our own water turbine and produce 80% of the electricity we use in the hotel and the winery with water power. The rest with diesel generators but we are constantly looking for more water. Water is rare up here in colomé, that is our main problem.

Water Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - Water is our most limited good up here. We see it as our gold and that's how we treat it.

Disposal Rating: ★★★★ (4)
Staff Comment - All our vineyards and vegetable gardens are biodynamic. We only use compost and all kitches separate different kinds of trash (recyclable, not recyclable, to be used for the compost).
