  • An unforgettable experience, not so much the visit to the winery itself, thus already had been at another Winery with a private tour where we were the only visitors, but for lunch, the best. A pairing of 7 days, from sparkling wine to the end, from the appetizer to dessert. Highly recommended!

  • The Bodega is small and charming, the tour is fairly complete, with detailed explanation on cultivation and production. Lunch is exceptional, the view of the mountain is beautiful.

  • The best restaurant I've tasted in Argentina! Everything was so good, the service was great, the presentation of the dishes as well was awesome! Incredible!!
  • What an amazing experience by the foothills of the Andes. Had the prix fixe 5 course menu paired with different wines and it was just surreal. The staff was so nice and knowledgeable. Can't wait to go back!
  • Food was good, great experience with the lunch course, the wines were good but didn't hit great.
  • Soft light fruity taste . Easy on the palate
  • The prix fixe menu offers a great variety of delicious and beautiful small plates paired with very good wines. The peaceful pastoral landscape and the splendid view of the mountains was a nice bonus. This is a great place to spend the siesta between wine tastings in the Luján de Cuyo.
