The Quara wines are currently produced by the fifth generation of the Lavaque family. Arriving in Argentina from Lebanon in the late 19th century, José Fortunato Lavaque was drawn to the singular landscape of the Calchaqui Valleys. Settling in the prosperous Salta town of Cafayate, he began producing wine in one of the highest terroirs in the world. Today the winery boasts 840 acres at altitudes between 1,600 and 2,000 m.a.s.l. The dry, sunny climate and broad temperature ranges in the vineyards produce high quality wines that are impressively full of flavour, colour and aroma.
