When the Spanish wine group Codorniú decided that Argentina would be their seventh great wine investment, they constructed their winery in the pirca style, in which natural stones are piled one atop the other. The Huarpe natives used this technique to build walls, dwellings, and sacred places. Inside theses massive walls is a state-of-the-art winery with sleek wood and glass corridors. Visitors climb over hoses and machinery while they follow the grapes from vineyard to bottle in a natural working atmosphere. A rooftop terrace is available for private lunches, weddings, or sunset wine tastings, and a restaurant, María, uses local ingredients infused with Arabic, Jewish, Greek, and African culinary traditions.
