My husband and I had a wonderful visit to La Colomé Bodega. The horse riding with Daniel was a highlight, how magnificent touring the estate on horseback with the backdrop of the Andes and Nevada Cachi. My horse had a bit of attitude , it made me like her all the more! Connie - one word - fabulous. Could this lovely lady be more helpful or accommodating? ,

Let’s not beat about the bush. We were here for the vino. Sabrina gave a great tour of the estate, The James Turrell art museum and conducted a very interesting wine tasting session. This lady works HARD!

The food was excellent, beautifully presented and exquisitely prepared.

In summary, Colome surpassed all our expectations, I hope to return at some point, and will be recommending to all my friends.

James Thurell Museum alone worth the trip! You will be suprised by a light magician. If you love Modern art, don't miss it. And Colomé wines are some of the best in Argentina. Better if you stay to sleep in Colome or somewhere not far.

Going to this place you are crossing impressive canyons with breathtaking views. Surrounded by vineyards this bodega and restaurant offers a good selection of wine and a small but delicious selection of dishes. Don't miss to visit the museum!!!

Colome vineyard lies about 20km away from the main road, for driving this ‘road’ into the hills you better get a good 4x4 it will take you close to an hour of dusty and dull road to get there.
Although the vineyard pretends to be a top tourist attraction (coming from Cafayete it’s already indicated 60km ahead) the organisation / treatment of guests could come directly out of a Fawlty towers episode, it’s dreadful. Admit we should have gotten a reservation but we thought how difficult can it be for 2 people to join a group of 16? Anyways, when we arrived without reservation, some argentenian Basil told us nothing was possible, no tour, no tasting, no food, no drinks, nothing was possible - Swiss hospitality at its best.
So they’d better put a subscribe on their road signs saying, “Colome - but if you don’t have a reservation, don’t bother”
Bottom line - if you are in the neighbourhood between Cachi and Cafayete visit the Piattelli vineyard near Cafayete, much nicer views, very friendly well organised staff and top wines- according to Vivino better than Colome.

After 6 hours drive on terrible roads we visited the bodega
At the beginning of the road the last 17 km it is signposted the bodega is open until 6 pm.
We were very exited because our queen Maxima had stayed here.
We arrived exhausted at 16:30 and then we were told you could only visit on appointment. We asked if we could buy a drink but they said that this was not possible we could only buy wine.
Then when we were about to leave a group of 16 got in for the tasting experience. We asked if it was possible to add for two but the man told us it was not possible he had not enough glasses. This for a bodega. I regret we bought a bottle of wine there we decided afterwards to throw it away and never drink the wine from this bodega again in future.
A very disappointing and rude experience
Do NOT go to this fraud !

We called in at Colome after reading good things about it, and the small fact it produces wine from the highest vineyards in the world!
We'd driven down from Cafayate which was a long, but excellent drive for the scenery and windy dirt road (not for the short of time and haters of dirt roads!). We arrived about 1:15pm in our dust caked car, surely looking a little hot and bedraggled. None of that mattered, and the reception was cordial and efficient (unlike many places around Cafayate!), and we were quickly asked if we wanted lunch (we did!), and if we wanted to go on a vineyard or museum tour (at 2 and 5pm respectively). We placed our lunch order (limited menu choice) and were then poured a glass of Amalaya Torrontes and shown to their welcome video screening for 10 mins to get the History and ennui of Colome while enjoying our nice cold Torrontes. After this we sat for lunch, which was lovely and on a terrace overlooking their immaculate gardens and vineyards. Top empabadas fyi! We finished off with a tasting of their regular Torrontes and malbec for 70pesos (they had a premium tasting for ~250pesos of rare vine selections). Because we'd had the Colome Torrontes for lunch (a class above the free Amalaya welcome drink!) we asked if we could substitute it for another wine. No problem. They did this, and let us try another estate malbec to compare against their 4 altitude vineyard blend malbec as well. Great service, and of course we ended up leaving with a couple of bottles!

It is a difficult road, but you'll never forget the destination. A high desert environment provides a dramatic setting in which to enjoy great wine, food and art. The James Turrell Museum alone is worth the pilgrimage. Turell's medium is light mediated through architecture. It may transform the way you see art.

My wife and I absolutely loved our day at Colome. The wine we had here was the best we had in Argentina, which is saying something! The Lotte Especial Tannat and Syrah are stunning wines. The food at the restaurant was excellent, and what a view! Sitting outside in the sun, eating a fantastic meal and drinking fantastic wine, looking over the vinyard with beautiful mountains in the background, is not a memory I will soon forget. The James Turrell museum at Colome was absolutely fantastic (see my other review). If you love wine and are able to go, go!

The drive out there (about 20-30 minutes from Molinos) was beautiful. The road was rough and steep in parts but still fine in our 2WD.

The winery itself has been magnificently put together. It is very elegant. There is a gift shop, cafe and restaurant. There is also an art museum onsite and there is some accommodation. While we did not eat at the restaurant or stay in the accommodation (it was out of our budget range) we formed favourable impressions.

We did get some food and drink at the cafe and tried the wines.

You have to pay to taste the wines - and that is not cheap either. I think I paid about $80 pesos to try 5 wines (and it is more expensive per wine to try fewer). The wines however were very good and I wound up buying a couple of bottles despite them being relatively expensive.

The buildings, the layout of the winery and the gorgeous surrounding desert are all very attractive. Tours of the winery are available but we arrived too late to do one. We were however able to view a short film (about 15 minutes) about the history of the winery, its owner/founder (Donald Hess) and the winemaker (a well credentialled Californian). Hess's passion for both wines and putting the project together in socially and ecologically responsible way are manifest in reality and promoted in the video.

While the winery promotes itself as being Argentina's oldest (founded 1831) this strikes me as misleading. The winery has actually been set up over the past 10 years or so but some of the vines are original from when there was previously a winery here back in about 1831 (research indicates) and perhaps some of the buildings were much older and restored also. The significance of the vines being so old is that they are pre-phylloxera and so Bodega Colome are doing all they can to keep them uncontaminated. The wines are also very special because they are made from grapes grown at the highest altitudes used anywhere.

This place would be worth staying at overnight but if visiting for the day only can deserve a whole day. I recommend staying until close and enjoying the late afternoon light, including on the way back.

Both you reach Bodega Colomè from North (Cachi) or south (Cafayate) you must drive at least 2 hours and a half of a difficult bad manteined gravel road (Ruta 40)
It's hard, after you drove such a road and you broke a tyre few km. before the destination, to be received with unacceptable rudeness .
Our request: " Is it possible to eat something? Is it possible to drink someting?"
Reply by the short black haired lady at the reception : NO! We serve until 3 pm (It was 2,50)
" Is it possible to have a taste of your famous wines?"
Reply: "NO! the wine testing is only on reservation ! you will be allowed to join the reserved group in two hours"
We were tired, hungry and thirsty but we gave up to insist and went away.
An Argentin Lady that was present was shoked by such an unpolite behavior and scolded the young lady telling her that Argentin hospitality surely don't consider such ugly way of treating people.

Dear Tonichi2013, Thanks for your feedback and apologies for the bad experience in our Bodega. We take notice of this and are working in staff capacitation to make sure this won't happen again. We are a small winery and have a limited capacity of reception which makes sometimes hard to give a special treatment for the guests that come out of schedule.The remoteness of our place makes the experience both magical and challenging. This is not an excuse for the rude behaviour and we are really sorry for this, and would love to receive you again as our special guest. Hope we have the chance to make you change your opinion soon.
