  • One of the best wine testing in Argentina. Amazing!!
  • Nice place, excellent food, excellent wines!
  • Alejandro Vigil is an idol to winelovers worldwide, an oenologist who, although produce complex wines, has as a philosophy of life uncomplicated viticulture. The idea to transform your property in Chachingo, municipality of Maipú, in the famous Casa El Enemy emerged on a flight with Adrianna Catena, the historian with a PhD at Oxford, daughter daughter of Nicolás Catena Catena Zapata Winery owner, the most awarded of Argentina and which is wine Director General Surveillance since 2002. The proposal of the company was to build a micro Winery with restaurant, using the most modern techniques of sustainability and organic production. The bodega is designed with inspiration in the Divina Commedia, the epic poem of the Italian Dante Alighieri. A free tour is offered to customers who are having lunch in the property. The name Casa El enemy comes to philosophical ramblings about historical characters as Hannibal and Genghis Khan and the never-ending struggle to overcome our fears, the conclusion always leads us to believe that our worst enemy, who creates the greatest barriers and prevent us from accomplishing great dreams is always ourselves. The wine tour begins in a reserved area of the restaurant, an area that receives quarterly exhibitions of artists mendocinos. On our visit we were able to admire beautiful paintings of Fernando Jereb. Although the main theme is attractive, if we didn't have a guide showing us every environment we wouldn't have the slightest notion that the cellar was based on the book by Dante, is a beautiful and attractive, but the links with the story are too subtle. The bodega currently produces (04/2017) seven wines, El Enemy Chardonnay, El Enemy Cabernet Franc, El Enemy Malbec, Bonarda, Enemy Enemy El Gran Blend, Gran Enemy Single Vineyard Agrelo and Gran Enemy Single Vineyard Gualtallary. Lunch account with a tasting menu of four steps to the air $540.00 price per person (about R $115.00 in 04/207). There is a great option for kids tasting menu with three steps for AIR $280.00 (R $60.00), ideal for those with children. The dinners are more elaborate, with seven-step menu, and must be reserved in advance to air $1,700.00 price per person (about R $350.00 in 04/207) for groups of six people or more and air $2,500.00 (R $515.00) for smaller groups of six people. The wine tastings range from AIR $195.00 per person (about R $40.00 in 04/207), with two AIR even $850.00 variety (some R $175.00) in Enemy ´ 's Collection with the most famous labels of the House.
