When Arnaldo Etchart sold his winery in 1998 he moved to the small Yacochuya bodega near Cafayate in the Salta region at a dizzying 2035m above sea level. He brought in Michel Rolland, who he had first met in 1988, as a consultant but this soon changed to a 50/50 joint venture. Rolland reanimated the old vines, most planted in 1915, and sourced new vines from France and a winery was built on site in 1999.

The delicious San Pedro de Yacochuya, their second wine, is made from 85% Malbec and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon with an average age of 65 years. Picked by hand at optimum ripeness and carefully sorted before undergoing a fermentation for 10 days in 12,500l stainless steel tanks for 10 days at 28 - 30 ° C, followed by a long maceration on the skins (4 weeks). The malolactic fermentation takes place in French oak 60% new where it spends another 12 months aging before bottling without filtration.
