A NEW WORLD CHRISTMAS

El Esteco

Alejandro Pepa, El Esteco Chief Winemaker Christmas is a special occasion regardless of where it finds you. You generally get together with family, but since the town of Cafayate, in the province of Salta, is so far away from everything, every time I spend Christmas here I make sure to meet with my ‘second family’: the friends this beautiful town has given me. I’m a very traditional person, so I thoroughly enjoy this wonderful day of getting together, wishing everyone well, toasting, sharing a meal with friends and family, exchanging small gifts – I think it’s marvellous. Every year we throw a great party where the entire staff from both wineries, El Esteco and Chañar Punco, are welcome. We merge Christmas and New Year’s Eve into a single event: a festive and happy  ccasion to spend a moment together and wish the best for each other for the upcoming year.
