We show you the wine route and which vineyards and wineries you can visit:

Just six kilometers from Villa Berna is Estancia Las Cañitas, a place to savor in the Sierras de Córdoba. Inside, you can learn about its history and the particularity of its vines, preserved in French and American oak barrels.
During the walk, you can also discover its vineyards, surrounded by stone giants and pine forests. The vines, coming from France, are: Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Bonarda and Sauvignon Blanc. Along the way, it is key to distinguish the aroma of blackberries and natural herbs, so characteristic of the area.
