Yacochuya Valley

8km East of Cafayate, at 2,000 m above sea level, is Yacochuya, lying on the Andean mountainside. ‘Yacochuya’ is a Quechua name, which means ‘clean water site’ (Yaco: site, place; Chuya: clean/transparent water).

Arid, stony soils are watered through canals that bring water down the mountains, so the area has eventually been transformed into a green oasis. Vines are structured partly in espaliers and partly in trellis. Cacti and succulents surround the vineyards, while ripe grapes are exposed to morning sunlight and wide temperature range (night-day).
Due to these peculiar soil and climate conditions, Domingo Molina grows red varietals, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
