The Estancia Los Potreros is a traditional cattle estancia with a sustainable farming ethos. They have a strong farm-to-table approach, a tree planting programme and zero food waste policy. Even wine bottles are taken back to the winery, to be refilled for their own Los Potreros wine! They run an annual ‘yerra’ or cattle branding day for the local farmers and gauchos – this is a very important community event. We camp on the estancia.
Estancia Los Potreros has long-supported the local rural school, and our guests help too. We send recycled clothing to a remote community in the north of Argentina. We're proud to be part of the ‘Pack for a Purpose’ initiative, which encourages travellers to think about ways they can positively impact local communities when they travel, and the estancia was one of the first places in South America to be awarded the TripAdvisor GreenLeader Platinum status.
