Bodega Catena Zapata, Agrelo

4.3
#3 of 46 in Wineries in Mendoza
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.

  • The Catena Zapata is an important wine in the history of Argentine wine. The family has been a pioneer in improving the production of wine in the years 80, Argentina if you deploy on the international stage. In addition, the Catena wines are known for quality and the wine architecture draws attention. For these reasons, we chose to visit Catena, but, because it is a large bodega, we don't feed expectations for the service. We think that at least degustaríamos fine wines and we could enjoy the construction inspired by the Mayan pyramids. Fortunately, we got an excellent attention (including the winemaker spoke Portuguese fluently). We opted for the tasting Single Vineyard (550 pesos per person), which was held in a glass room overlooking the oak barrels. The architecture is really beautiful, make sure you climb to the lookout to observe the scenery and take pictures. While other wineries draw on European models, the Catena honors the pre-Columbian civilizations. I highly recommend the place for lovers of good wine and architecture.

  • Tuvimos recently with my spouse experience "The art of Malbec". Magnificent organization of the tour, visiting vineyards, production plant and a spectacular final tasting of 4 wines of high quality. We must emphasize the excellent technical explanation of Agostina sommelier and the friendliness of Lorraine at the reception. It is a visit indispendable in Mendoza. We must make reservations in advance.

  • I like these vines for years. The price-performance is outstanding, no comparison with the claret vines. The top shots like ADRIANNA VINEYARD are magnificent.
  • Fantastic place and super good quality wine. A beautiful and glamours bodega worth visiting.
  • 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.
