Deep in the heart of South America, in the north of Argentina at the foot of the Andes lies Salta. A great place to dream and fantasise against a backdrop of overwhelming natural beauty, paired with an excellent bife de ancho and fantastic fruity wines.

The charcoal glows orange in the corner of the fireplace. Fireplaces used as open fires in houses were intended for cooking. Here and there small flames lick from the coals towards a beautiful piece of bife de ancho, undoubtedly from a cow that roamed the pampas and grazed on its juicy grass. The scalding heat has gorgeously browned the ribeye and the smell of roasting meat and wood smoke fills the air as night begins to fall.
