The passion and work of men and women over the years played a key role in the construction of an exceptional winegrowing industry. In Bodegas Etchart, the vineyard and winery’s workers are strongly committed to the wines they make and each stage in the winemaking process...
“The close relationship between the Saltenean wine and the Calchaquí Valleys’ landscapes, together with its resulting impact, turned Cafayate into an emblem of Argentina, in a unique-value, virtually mystical place. Every man and woman visiting this site can perceive the magic and charm surrounding it, but they also value its winegrowing industry, which expresses unique qualities with an identity that allows it to go beyond time”

Visctor has been working at Bodegas Etchart for more than 35 years, joining the establishment in 1982.
“Our wines experience steady growth in sales in the Argentine market, and they are known all over the world for their excellent quality-price ratio. After over two decades alongside Bodegas Etchart, when I look back I can smile with confidence that we have done things well and we will continue along the same path: of work, persistence and respect for our soil”
