Amazing place nestled in the Calchaquí Valley, specifically in Molinos, Salta. There, inland, the Dávalos family discovered a suitable area for extreme winemaking and an astonishing terroir for the production of high altitude wines.
The challenge began long ago
The family history tied to the vines dates back to the mid 1800s, when Ascensión Isasmendi of Dávalos, founder of the oldest winery in the country, introduced the first foreign grapevines into the valley, changing the Calchaquí landscape forever.
With a defiant disposition
Raul focused his philosophy on the concept of terroir and took even further his commitment to reject oak aging, claiming that Tacuil wines should demonstrate the originality of its grapes in its purest state, without the classical influence of wood. Moreover, he was a pioneer in the altitude winemaking, which distinguishes the products of the high valley of Salta.
