Les viñas del Cafayate or Cafayate and its vines; a wine producing region in Argentina.

My suggestion:
If you are in the area at the end of February you should go to see the Serenata music festival. All types of North West Argentina music are to be found there.
Summary:

Cafayate's wines will please everyone who loves good cheer! This little village in the heart of the Calchaquíes Valleys, in the province of Salta, is famous for its good food and, obviously, for its wine. Like Mendoza, Cafayate is part of Argentina's wine route.

Cafayate, perched at an altitude of 1,600 m on a little red and ochre mountain, was founded in the 19th century. Even though the temperatures can be a little cool, Cafayate is sunny practically all year long, which allows it to produce wine from a white grape variety called Torrontes. In Argentina wines are known by the variety of grape they are made from. 

During my stay in North West Argentina I really enjoyed cycling to Cafayate's bodegas (Torino, Félix Laraque, Etchart...) and in the evening having dinner and a glass of wine with some friends on the Place 20 de Febrero, listening to the charango, an instrument that is typically Andean.
