A recent study by Argentine Hunting and Natural Resources estimates that the population of doves surpasses 32 million.  You can anticipate an unparalleled experience each day of shooting made possible because of the Estancia’s location and amenities. El Colibrí organizes the hunting day beginning at 8 a.m. A bird boy providing the cartridges and loading the weapon accompanies each hunter. At noon the group takes a restful break under the trees to enjoy a traditional Argentine asado and a refreshing hammock nap. The hunting continues afterwards until the six in the afternoon. At night, the day’s spoils along with other outstanding dishes and desserts make up the exquisite meals at La Table du Colibrí. The vegetables and herbs used are grown in the garden; the dairy products, eggs and meat are obtained from the Estancia’s animals. Local flavors take center stage at the tastings where cold cuts, cheeses and homemade rolls accompany an exclusive selection of wines from the three of the finest wine producing regions in Argentina (Mendoza, Salta and Patagonia).
