Need to Know

Pack plenty of water, not necessarily available along the way.

Plenty of random camping spots available.

Contact Bodega Taquil in advance to ascertain lodging availability, not a regular business.

Locate Estancia Colome online for excellent lodging and winery tours with tasting.

Description

This is an easy link between two famous wineries. The road out of Taquil is steep and treacherous in a car or truck but much easier on foot or horseback. Departing the emerald valley you gain most of your vertical in the first mile or so, then descend into a great valley flanked by mountains.

Along the road there are fascinating geological points, a small town and school (see video) where the outback people are always excited to see people. Also along the way is Bodega Humanao, and finally arriving at the 4/5 star Colome bodega and estancia.

Each of the wineries with their irrigation are stark contrasts to the high alpine desert.
