salentein-12012017Landgoed Huis de Salentein – with a touch of Argentina!
The history of the Salentein estate goes back to the 16th century. In 1970 the estate became the headquarters for Pon Holdings. After an extensive restoration, the old grandeur of the House was done right again. With his love for Argentina, the CEO of Pon Holdings added a touch of the Argentinian food, wine and arts culture.

Salentein Premium Beef is meat with an exceptional taste. It is served with the wines from the Salentein vineyards in Argentina. Located at the foot of the Andes mountains the Winery Bodegas Salentein delivers Portillo wines, young wines with a recognizable fruity character. In the province of San Juan you will find the winery Bodegas Callia where the world class Grand Callia and Callia Magna Shiraz are produced.
