  • is a place that was recommended to us by several  people so it's the first one we wanted to visit  

  • and the plan is to have some lunch here  and we're also signing up for a tour

  • boulevard is a short 15-minute drive from the  center of town in Cafayate it's situated at the  

  • foot of the mountains and has beautiful  views all around they have an on-site  

  • restaurant that is heavy on the barbecue  and also features some regional specialties  

  • we couldn't get a table just randomly  showing up on a sunday but that didn't  

  • stop us from ordering a bottle of wine  and enjoying some appetizers alfresco

  • cheers guys cheers cheers our first  bodega here in salta we are at piatelli  

  • italia and we are trying a malbec tana 5050  very nice place the wine is really tasty  

  • wonderful the color is red ruby red you know  really nice aroma as well yeah you can you can  

  • smell the tanat grape the bodega itself is right  at the side of the uh at the foot of the mountain  

  • and down there you can see the whole valley you  can see the other uh gordon of uh mountains over  

  • there with that red terracotta collar on the  sides beautiful place look it feels like time  

  • is standing still you know yeah and apart from the  vines they also have beautiful gardens with like  

  • rose bushes you have cacti you have trees it's  a stunning property to visit it's beautifully  

  • manicured you have the mountains in the background  you have the vineyards in all directions and it's  

  • just amazing it's a slice of tranquility out here  and we have food coming we ordered some empanadas  

  • a trio of empanadas with different fillings so  we'll show you that as soon as it arrives as soon  

  • as he gets here to accompany the wine until  then cheers we drink wine we drink we drink

  • right the empanadas have arrived three different  kinds of empanadas i'm starting off with the  

  • cheese ones yeah they're piping hot look at  whoa like they are loaded oozing they are plump  

  • empanadas let me tell you and we've got two sauces  this one is like a tomato and onion base and this  

  • one is a little bit spicy yeah it's like a like  a amarillo from peru yeah yeah but they're really  

  • they're really hot because they just came out of  the oven and it's very very hard to eat like this  

  • they're piping hot yeah but they're good mine  the the meat this is beef yeah and it's cut  

  • with a knife it's not uh ground beef and this is  typically done with the salta empanada yeah and  

  • they took man too sometimes yeah i think they  do it in the north in the northern part of the  

  • country yeah yeah all of them are good huh well  oh mom well we need something in our stomachs to  

  • absorb the wine so empanadas it is this one is so  good this is the osobuko yeah and it's a beef that  

  • just melts in your mouth it's like so buttery and  so juicy so yeah the food is just as good as the  

  • wine over here huh my oh my you want to actually  have a meal you need to reserve to come here yeah  

  • we didn't make a reservation so they had no tables  available yeah that's why we're just drinking wine  

  • and having empanadas on a barrel yeah that's what  there was we're not complaining this is good stuff

  • well we've been wandering around the vineyard  for the past hour or so waiting for the clock  

  • to strike three that's when they start  the next tour they stop briefly during the  

  • lunch hour when it comes to wine tastings  this bodega offers two different options  

  • you can try seven reserve wines for 300 pesos  or five grand reserve wines for 380. we opted  

  • for the ladder and at the time of our visit  that was the equivalent of about 6 us dollars

  • first we went on a tour of the winery  and even got a peek at their cellar  

  • and later on we got to taste their wines

  • so what are we having here guys the whites

  • it's like fresh crisp with a romance of pears  apples and pineapples what do you think huh

  • i like a wine that tastes like grapes that tastes  like wine like i always say if i want the taste of  

  • fruit i go to the fruit store and save a lot of  money and buy in a bottle of wine also sam's not  

  • really into white wine so he had to sip and put  the rest in the spittoon hey i'm i'm saving i'm  

  • saving for the red i could have had it yeah but  i do we don't we don't have to carry you home so  

  • you know facing ourselves okay next time you  leave wine left over and he comes to it you  

  • throw it out like that payback and we havelittle bit of bread yeah with some olive oil  

  • okay it's perfect to clean the clean the  palate put a bit of a layer in the belly rosie

  • nothing left of the raw set but he says it wasn't  his favorite even though he had all of it he drank  

  • all of it and he's like not my favorite and it's  a malbec i didn't know that malware could be made  

  • into a rosette but apparently they leave it for  three hours yes but it's not my kind of wine i  

  • won't buy it and then it's too dry in the mouth  you know like it leaves your mouth like that one  

  • this one is from Cafayate this one is from mendoza  this is high altitude wine yes and then standard  

  • altitude i'm gonna try the high altitude the smell  is really it's beautiful you guys are you guys are  

  • high flyers over here it smells like grapereally like the high altitude wine from cafe  

  • it's like full body but very smooth like  it just it doesn't have that alcoholic burn  

  • at the last minute you know  when you drink a wine that is  

  • halfway there and you drink it  and you feel that alcoholic burn

  • this one is very smooth we've been having  a fantastic wine tour i mean we started off  

  • with a bottle of wine for lunch with our empanadas  and now we've moved on to tasting we got here like  

  • shortly after noon and uh now by the time we  leave it'll probably be about five o'clock so  

  • i spent the whole afternoon here at the  bodega and i couldn't recommend it more  

  • i'd come back again tomorrow we'll do it all  over again at a different winery tomorrow  

  • yeah tomorrow we will we it's another bodega  day so stay tuned and this is the last one right

  • the trio los tres amigos this one  wraps up our tour uh in the bodega  

  • yeah and tomorrow we are going to do  it all over again in a different day

  • but we've reached our limit yeah what  a great day what a fantastic day though  

  • it was a lot of fun had a great time cheers to  a fun afternoon if you're traveling in argentina  

  • come to california and visit bodegas it's the  best thing you can do in town let me tell you  

  • now fast forward to the following day the next  winery and vineyard we visited was bolega lesteko  

  • this property is located on the edge of  town and since Cafayate is a very small town  

  • that means you can easily walk there our plan was  to order a bottle of wine and enjoy a nice lunch  

  • thankfully we were able to get a table this time

  • well good afternoon guys another day another  vineyard today we have come to bolega el esteco  

  • they also have a restaurant on site that's  called la rosa and they have a hotel called  

  • patios de Cafayate so there's a lot going on on  this property we're here for lunch we're hungry

  • but the property is very nice it's built on the  typical colonial spanish colonial construction  

  • the way they used to build back in the days a lot  of inner courtyards and a lot of uh kind of like  

  • terraces like covered terraces and  yeah it's a very very nice place to

  • visit

  • cheers guys wine and empanadas have arrived  wine is here and empanadas are here mr

  • and it says it has been stored in oak barrels  for 12 months yeah when it's a reserving it's  

  • at least 12 months in a whole barrel so it needs  time it's a very uh soft mild wine you know you  

  • cannot go wrong with this one top notch very good  quality stuff my kind of wine i put it up there as  

  • one of my favorite ones from argentina yeah it's  right up there right up there and it's very very  

  • very reasonably priced both here and in canada too  so you guys have the you guys have beef empanadas  

  • how are they marvelous i tell you half of it  is gone with a little bit of the sauce on top  

  • oh yeah yeah the sauce really enhances it the  fried ones are just my favorite they're the best

  • good appetizer or what juicing made to perfection  and you know what i think the pastry is made with  

  • lard yeah and it has that but that's flavor  they are very small here in the northern  

  • provinces they make them smaller  and when you start eating these  

  • you don't stop it's a danger you know because  they're so tasty and so good that you could  

  • i could stick myself with about a dozendozen and a half of these ones no problem  

  • so the best thing to do instead of uh having them  as an appetizer maybe one day you just decide to  

  • eat nothing but this like so you your craving can  be satisfied right look at all the cheese copious  

  • amount looks amazing there's a bit of salsa left  some lime has already been squeezed over top so  

  • i'm loading it up like that i'm going to do a one  biter one biter amy goes i've tried empanadas in  

  • a lot of different parts of argentina the ones  that you get in the north from like Tucumán and  

  • salta argentina those are my favorite they're just  so good and they go perfectly with a glass of wine  

  • cheers right mains have arrived what do we got  these are here what have we got my dad and i both  

  • ended up getting the same dish yeah originallywanted to try their northern stew their casuela  

  • but they were out they didn't have any so i got  the pasta instead yeah they were landing right oh  

  • yeah it was like a lentil stew yeah which i'm sure  would be wonderful with a bit of pork but yeah  

  • this is very tasty a nice alternative and i really  like the presentation how it's kind of rustic they  

  • just serve it to you in the pan on top of this  like wooden tray here it goes down the hatch

  • homemade you cannot go wrong with that one okay  beautiful and we also got a little side salad  

  • since we haven't been getting lots of vegetables  in our system this is called the inca salad and  

  • it has quinoa tomatoes onions corn lots of lemon  juice parsley very good and you sam you've got  

  • quite the meal in front of you i don't can't wait  to show you look at this guys well i'm gonna lift  

  • the hood so you can see toasted bun sesame seeds  i've got egg i've got tomatoes i've got lettuce  

  • i've got bacon cheese meat i mean the meat is  so big it's even oozing out on the sides looks  

  • incredible and then some pan roasted potatoes  here looks like it's been seasoned with maybe some  

  • cayenne pepper or something looks like i've got  a nice little sauce here creamy sauce oh like a  

  • mayo dip of sorts that has wasabi in it oh my god  oh yeah i'll give some serious kick to it i am the  

  • star of the show the burger that is a big burger  guys look at that in the hands barely contain it

  • oh that looks juicy oh yeah it's likemeat lover's dream you know that's just a  

  • beautiful burger man like the food here has been  phenomenal everything we've had from the bread to  

  • the empanadas to this you guys have really enjoyed  your means too yeah this restaurant is fantastic

  • dessert dessert has arrived two desserts to be  precise and audrey's been uh indulging a bit in  

  • both of them so we have uh flan yeah with dulce  de leche and this is a special kind of flan it  

  • comes with gold milk so i'm interested to try that  i don't think i've ever had a goat milk flan over  

  • here we have a regional dessert you were saying  something like it's sort of like an empanada  

  • with a with a sweet inside yeah so it's a filo  pastry and it's stuffed with a local fruit called  

  • Cafayate yeah and it's heavy in the hand it's also  really warm too yeah so you basically smear it on  

  • this cheese is that right it's not cheese it is  a meringue made with sugar cane my friend well  

  • there we go yeah look at that and it is hot let  me warn you that jam inside the coyote jam that's  

  • good wow all right time for the flan with tussle  de leche it's usually made with cow's milk but in  

  • this case they've used goat's milk so let's see  if you can actually taste the difference or not

  • i couldn't by the way no normally i find  

  • goat products are a little bit more salty but this  tastes just very very milky like a normal flan  

  • and this is this is a very classic dessert  in argentina i'd say it's probably one of  

  • the most common ones you get your flan with your  serving of pieces of leche and yeah really nice  

  • way to end this meal fantastic meal overall  and then i think we're all getting a little  

  • sleepy here it's been a lot of food andlot of wine a lot of wine that's the culture

  • well lunch is over that wasdelicious meal it came to 50 us dollars  

  • and now we're climbing up a bell tower  because we've got to work out work off  

  • those calories and apparently you get some  pretty cool views so here we go it's very echoey

  • the bell tower is open to visitors and is free to  climb once you reach the top you are treated to  

  • views of the vineyard stretching out as far as the  eye can see plus mountains all along the horizon

  • so

  • well guys that concludes our visit to  bodega el esteco that was fun that was great  

  • yeah that was a good meal oh yeah good wine  now we're ready to go home we have a good  

  • siesta yeah maybe we'll relax for a little  while we have another half an hour walking
