Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Cuyo / Province of Mendoza / Mendoza / Agrelo / Wineries / Bodega Catena Zapata
In the wine-rich region of Mendoza, Bodega Catena Zapata produces popular wines and has been credited for raising the profile of Argentinean wines worldwide. A family-run operation, the winery was founded by Nicola Catena, an Italian immigrant, in 1902 and has been passed on to subsequent generations. Catena’s grandson, Nicolas Catena Zapata experimented and perfected vine growing in high altitudes and is said to be one of the first to introduce European techniques to the winemaking process in Argentina. Visit the winery, built in a pyramid-shape to reflect Mayan architecture, for a tour of the cellars and a wine tasting. Your guide will lead you through how to taste the wines, give out samples directly from the barrels, and teach you about the winemaking process. Make Bodega Catena Zapata a centerpiece of your Mendoza vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Mendoza itinerary planner.

Fizemos a degustação mais cara da vinicula, os vinhos ótimos, mas não havia nada para harminiza-los. Um queijo...apenas uns biscoitos. E o local pega muito sol a tarde. Vinhos estavam quentes. more »We did the tasting more vinicula guy, great wines, but there was nothing to harminiza them. A cheese ... just some cookies. And the site get lots of sunshine in the afternoon. Wines were hot.View original

Beautiful bodega and we had a great time over there... prices for the bottles were not good. You can buy it cheaper at a wine store downtown.
The Top Malbec tour was the best wine-tasting experience I've ever had, and I live near Napa and Sonoma California. The wines are superb, and because you're talking to actual agronomists and wine makers rather than full-time tour guides, the depth of the Q&A is unlimited.
Barbara GuimarãesIn addition to the wines are wonderful, the Winery is beautiful breathtaking!! I went a while ago and I intend to go back.View original
