El Porvenir was founded within the Calchaqui Valley in the town of Cafayate by the Romero-Marcuzzi family in 2000. The family's first winery was founded in the late 1970’s in Tolombón, just a few miles from the town of Cafayate. The Romero-Marcuzzis have been an integral part of the Cafayate community ever since and El Porvenir de Cafayate has become one of the benchmark wineries of the Salta region.
The family and wines show a great love and respect for the local terroir and they strive to maintain the legacy of their ancestors while also incorporating current winemaking and viticulture methods. The family owns and farms four different vineyards within the Calchaqui Valley all of which are located close to the town of Cafayate. The oldest vineyard was planted approximately 65 years ago and each parcel is primarily comprised of sandy soils with elevations ranging from 5400 to 6200 feet above sea level.
The gravity fed winery and cellar is housed within a hand made adobe structure in downtown Cafayate. All grapes are hand harvested, with little intervention in the winery to maintain the purity of the fruit. The winery is currently run by Lucia Romero-Marcuzzi, the granddaughter of Roberto, the founder of El Porvenir de Cafayate.
