about Munay.

Munay is the Quechua word for love. Quechua was the language used by the Inca empire, the indigenous people that many years ago ruled Peru, Bolivia and the north of Argentina. Its influence remains today and we wanted to pay tribute to them and the way of living with these wines.

our essence.

Munay is a family project run by Lucia Romero, who has been working in the wine industry for more than 15 years. These wines are the result of our love for Cafayate, a unique wine region that we want you to discover.

Our place, Cafayate Salta

The wine region

We tend to our vines at an altitude of 1,750 meters above sea level in a unique and privileged region. In the province of Salta, Argentina, 180 km south of the capital, lies this region with an extreme desert climate, offering warm days and cool nights, very little rainfall and plentiful sunlight, with vineyards planted between 1,700 and 2,500 meters above sea level. Cafayate is a small, isolated valley with very special characteristics—its desert climate and poor soils benefit the production of high quality grapes, making it easy to practice integrated, sustainable and organic viticulture. The principal factor influencing the vines is the day-night temperature variation, due to the altitude, which allows the grapes to become very concentrated and at the same time very ripe, resulting in wines with smooth, round tannins.
