In Northwest Argentina in the province of Salta lies a hidden historic Estancia called La Bodega. Combined with the adjoining ranch, El Tipal, these two ranches lie in the shadow of the 10,300 foot Mt. Creston, borders six miles of the Juramento River, and makes up our long term conservation stewardship of the 70,000 acres known as Condor Valley. For the last five years we have been slowly renovating and bringing to life this historic piece of Argentine gaucho culture. We are looking for partners (non-profits, universities, investors) for agricultural development, adventure tourism and architectural preservation/renovation. Come take part in this amazing, ongoing adventure polishing a gem of Argentine history and culture.
