  • We just did the tour with Daniella and really enjoyed it especially the scent room. Only one in South America. Great tour great tasting and taking some home.  more »
  • Did the lunch was very good, excellent harmonised harmonization. Not to mention that you see that wonderful lunch is priceless. After lunch we visit the aroma room, where we feel all the good and bad wine aromas.

  • The visit is short and normal, feels that it is a girl but very good cellar. I liked and why I put very good room scents. The tasting have several prices and that is good because you choose at the end to preferis. Try Atrancita Malbec sweet, expensive but delicious for the confectioners.

  • Gorgeous winery! They have an interesting tour area, which is essentially a large room filled with several dozen aromas that can be found in wines, and an explanation of each. These range from what you would expect (pepper, citrus, etc.) to some more unusual (e.g. sulphur). They also offer what looked like a very lovely 5 course meal with wine pairings for AR$950/person - the chef for the restaurant has another restaurant with a Michelin star. We did not try the meal so I can't comment on whether it was good or not, but I did notice they had a vegetarian option that would be suitable for pescetarians (it replaced the beef course with a vegetarian course, but there was still a salmon course either way). We did the 5 wine tasting and found it quite lovely. The 2013 Torrontes (called Rosa) and the 2011 Malbec (called Guentota) were two standouts. The woman who gave us the tasting was wonderful - extremely polite and friendly and quite knowledgeable about the wines. Each wine's name has an interesting backstory which was fun to hear about as well. The real standout wine was the Antracita, which is a red made from frozen grapes that tasted like nothing else we'd had before! It was sweet, but I'm not typically a fan of sweet wines, and loved it. There was no added sugar so it felt light and not sugary. We had promised ourselves we weren't going to buy any bottles to bring back to the states, but they don't export the Antracita (they export all the others through a company in the US), so we caved and bought a bottle, the only one we bought in Argentina. While we were waiting for our taxi the woman who had given us our tasting even gave us another glass of the Antracita for free, which was very kind. In summary, beautiful winery, food by a Michelin-starred chef, and don't miss the Antracita!
  • Lunch and made with sofisticacao but the dishes could be prepared with exquisite products. All the corn maze 3 Arugula leaves. A lot of little beauty taste and quality. As for the wines enjoyed all!

  • This Winery, the tour was brief and awful restaurant. Bad service, very slow, food OK. The price is high to serve water dispenser. When we ask him to change it, they brought us dirty water again. Not had mineral water in bottle or gas light. A disappointment.

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.
