#1 of 57 in Wineries in Mendoza
French-owned Bodega Ruca Malen draws visitors with its famous five-course lunches paired with full-bodied red wines with cherry-plum notes and a spicy finish. Take a tour of the vineyards and the well-designed orange brick building, or just have lunch in the posh and generous atmosphere of the restaurant with panoramic views. Try cured meat with cacao powder, apples with burrata (a fresh Italian creamy cheese), or choose something from the vegetarian menu. Note that the cost of the tour is discounted if you buy a bottle of wine. Make reservations in advance. To visit Bodega Ruca Malen on your trip to Mendoza, use our Mendoza online trip maker .

  • Go to Mendoza and not visit the Bodega Ruca Malen is like going to Rome and not seeing the Pope. The wine of this Bodega is excellent.

  • Spectacular! Beautiful place, with views of the mountain ranges. Sympathy and education of all employees. Tasty dishes and wines that harmonize perfectly. Visited by friends and thus also recommend it to everyone.

  • We arrived in Ruca Malen for lunch. We were outside with an incredible view ... the menu always changes and is, this time, sustainability. Sensational menu with organic ingredients, chef food, even those that you identify. Had a choice for vegetarians ... sensational wines ... perfect attendance

  • Food is truly outstanding! Wine is very good. Tour is OK but I've been on so many perhaps Im biased. Be aware though that the tip for the food service is not included in the price. This is a really interesting and nice tour. I'd recommend.
  • The place is heaven on earth. The floor seems a thick green carpet, the view of the mountains (still snowy in November!) and the beautiful weather made us have an exquisite experience. Nevertheless the food (although 6 pasos) was scarce and the wine was somewhat short (less than a glass every step of the way) for the AR$1,500 we paid per person. If you are lucky you get a nice waiter that serves you a bit more. Overall we had a great time. Arrive early as 12pm to get a table outside if the weather is nice.
  • This is hands down the best lunch in Mendoza. Incredible food and view of the mountains.
  • The space was beautiful, however despite having a reservation, I was not able to try the wine because I was a few mins late. I now can’t speak to the wine, and I think it would’ve been appropriate if they’d still poured us tastes - particularly since tasting is usually at the end and was only done at the beginning to accommodate another guest who wanted to be able to leave early.
  • Great pairing excellent service and group of people from different part of the world. Food manifico
