Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Cuyo / Province of Mendoza / Mendoza / Agrelo / 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.

We sent an email on September 3 to schedule at the end of October and only had to return a week before departure saying that there was no more vacancies. Those interested in making the visit schedule with more advance and be lucky enough to be answered more promptly.
Really difficult to contact this bodega or get them to respond. Have sent two emails (no response to either) and their online reservation does not provide an online or email confirmation (just reverts to start). Uncertain whether online reservation system is working.
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.
Simply charming, the visit is very well led and all the family history and detail told, following to a wine tasting wine's high quality.
The place is very nice, especially plantations preceding building. For its part the architecture of pyramidal appearance and Interior rock and wood is somewhat flamboyant and ostentatious, but in the end we are talking about Catena. The sector dedicated to the shop and the living/reception seems too small and improvised with respect to such a structure. The factory is located at the back. We arrived close to the closing time with intention to buy wines and not to make the journey but we were not greeted with much enthusiasm.

Where to stay in Mendoza
As the center of Argentina's wine industry, Mendoza offers plenty of conventional hostel and hotel options, as well as a good selection of short-term apartments for rent. Visitors taking language courses or spending several weeks on the wine route usually snatch these early in the tourist season (which lasts from mid-December to late-February), so it's a good idea to do some research and contact the owners before you arrive. Keep in mind that some of the town's hostels only offer beds to guests signed up for their wine tours.
