  • We did the full tour, very cool and interesting, but very simple tasting ☹ ☹ ️ ️ 3. The award-winning wines are not part of the tasting as the other bodegas.

  • We made a visit on the site. Excellent wines Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. All, of excellent standard. Worth tasting.

  • The guided tour is well. We had to be guided by Anabell and the truth was very good. Wine tasting for me that I am not an expert was good but not know if for demanding people is it... seems to me lacking that will take us to where they were vineyards since we went promptly to this Winery porq told us that in the guided tour you had to see the vineyards. But it did not. Also in general it was good. The cost was approximately 190 $por person

  • My favorite tour and winery that we visited during are trip to Mendoza. The grounds are beautiful and historic with a gorgeous view of the Andes Mountains. Make sure you make reservations before you show up. The tour was very detailed and you got to sample other types of wines as she described the different steps along the way in addition to the full tasting at the end of the tour! I really enjoyed their selection of wines and at only 150 pesos for the tour and tasting it's a great value.
  • Beautiful tasting grounds, and very informative tour (given in Spanish). Tons of cool history here. The wine tasting was delicious - I especially liked the Cabernet franc. Staff was friendly and helpful. Lunch was not only delicious, but each lunch course came paired with a wine.
  • The website is not working. I'm trying to book 2 tickets to visit the vineyards by the website and unfortunately it's not working
  • Not a fan of the wine itself, but the visit of this bodega is great. Daniela our guide was very good, professional and friendly. The building is beautiful and the train tracks are a nice touch that helps you imagine how wine was transported back in the days.
  • After tasting many dozens of different brands of Malbec under $13 per 750 ML, this 2014 Trapiche has been my ultimate favorite. It is so smooth with only a slight hint of sweetness. The flavor is rich without any vinegary aftertaste. When I drink my normal 8 ounce glass of this wine I desire more. I also sipped it faster. This never happened with ANY other wine. I have been searching for a wine like this for a decade. This will be the only Malbec I will buy from this point on. It is way beyond awesome. As an amateur soil scientist I am very curious as to what type of soil their grapes are spoiled with. My best guess is mineral rich soil in a valley at the base of a tall mountain. It sure would be fun to find out.

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.
