Bodega Catena Zapata, Agrelo
(4.5/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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 Agrelo vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Agrelo itinerary planner.

  • The visit is very technical and provides a great opportunity for acquiring new knowledge on wine tasting. 
  • Construction and the landscape of the enclave are different and very original, attention and guide are excellent, but face the visit with tasting.

  • It was a visit guided amazing, learning from the history of the Catena Zapata family, amazing wines and friendly part of the girls of tourism was exceptional. I recommend that people visiting Mendoza stop not live this wonderful experience.

  • 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.
  • Excellent Winery, wines of international quality and very good service. Highly recommended.
