Altos de la Banda offers you an opportunity to acquire your own private vineyard
of between one and five hectares. Prices start from 35,000 USD per hectare.
We are at 2200 metres above sea level near the picturesque villages of Molinos and Seclantas
in the province of Salta, Argentina. The vineyards are amongst the highest in the world.
The vines grown at this altitude are of the finest quality and much sought after because
of their abundant textures and flavours for making great wines.
The vineyards are in middle of the marvellous Calchaqui Valleys where the sun shines
over 330 days per year, and the air is as clean as it was hundreds of years ago.
