Bodega Colome was established in 1831 by the Spanish Governor of Salta, Nicolas Severo de Isasmendi y Echalar. In 1854, his daughter Ascension, who was married to Jose Benjamin Davalos, brought the first French pre-phylloxera Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon vines to Colome.
Grapes from three vineyards (with an area of 4 hectares each) planted in that year are still used to make wines. Located in the Upper Calchaqui Valley in Salta in the far north of Argentina, not only is Colome the oldest winery in Argentina, but it also claims to be the owner of the world`s highest vineyard. It has been a part of the Hess Family Estates since 2001 and is run with the same dedication to quality, sustainability and social responsibility as the other Hess Estates around the world.
