Arrive in Cafayate in time for lunch and, of course, a wine tasting and a tour at one of the town’s newest wineries, Piattelli. After lunch, you can visit some of the smaller family-run wineries which date back to the late 19th century.
In the evening, stroll round the square to sample the delightful charms of small town Argentina, before dinner at one of the recommended restaurants.   
 
Day 2: In the morning, you will enjoy a short tour to visit the spectacular quartz, limestone and sandstone formation of the Quebrada de las Flechas near Angastaco, before the empanada class. Each family has its own jealously-guarded recipe, but your chef will let you in on their secret methods. 
 
For lunch, your home-cooked empanadas will be washed down with a Torrontes or Malbec, before your return to Salta through the red rock landscape of the Quebrada de las Conchas in its best (late afternoon) light.
