Winery / Vineyard Food & Drink
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.

  • 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.
  • 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.
