As the iconic winery of the Calchaquíes Valleys, we could not fail to include in our portfolio the chance to enjoy a pleasant encounter with bubbles. The Ciclos line includes an Extra Brut sparkling wine made from Chardonnay grapes, a sparkling Rosé blend of Malbec and Pinot Noir and a sparkling Torrontés Dulce from our emblematic Torrontés grapes. Aromatic and floral, with soft, delicate bubbles, our sparkling wines bear, at heart, the contrast between elegance and wild valley nature that characterizes El Esteco.

Made according to the traditional Charmat method, the winery’s three sparkling wines reflect the typicity of the Calchaquíes Valleys region.
Our Extra Brut sparkling wine is made from Chardonnay grapes; the Rosé is a blend of Malbec and Pinot Noir and the Torrontés Dulce is a 100% varietal wine, unique to the region.
Bottle sizes: 750 ml and 187 ml.
