  • The winery, the oldest in San rafael, has a rich history. Its founder, Iselin, was one of the pioneers of the area. Their production methods are also old, all picturesque. They have well designed guided tours.

  • The winery we visited because it was within a tour to Los Reyunos. With my partner we are 0 alcohol, so we did not expect much from the visit. Enter, they tell the story of the founder of the first Winery in San Rafael as if it were a tale of telenovela, very entertaining and for nothing heavy. You walk through the cellar and ultimately make you taste the wines that are there. Us, we get two bottles of grape juice (it's like wine, but without alcohol, and is great) while others seemed to be good. Good, the visit is made bearable and they have lots of variety. Wineries that led us, the better.

  • A wine cellar with history and much to do to San Rafael. OK, travelled and a good comparison of the different scales of the wineries.

  • Nagaoka accepts criticism cheerfully, and uses criticism productively to develop own abilities and skills. When working to a firm but realistic deadline, Nagaoka always completes tasks to an adequate standard. Accuracy and neatness may suffer but the outcome is acceptable. Puts in some extra hours to meet the deadline. When dressed for the job, personal appearance and dress immediately impress. Distinctive, perhaps distinguished. Performs most jobs well and has the habit of checking work outcomes. Nagaoka is achieving excellence in some areas but in others is not yet achieving the highest standards. A persuasive, engaging speaker when well-prepared, but uncomfortable and less effective when asked to speak off-the-cuff. Nagaoka enjoys working without supervision and usually continues to carry out duties effectively. Still needs to learn when it is appropriate to call for a supervisor’s advice or authority to act. Habitually asks questions in order to fully understand a position or a statement. Keeps asking until the facts are clear and the truth is understood. Can work in a team but often produces individual work at the end of a group activity. Not supportive or tolerant of others in the team.
  • Ok
  • The best tour I've done to a winery, 10 excellent! And it's free, you just have to ask for a tip. In addition the wines and sparkling wines are first and very good prices. And it is the oldest Winery in San Rafael, filled with interesting stories.

  • The first farm and Winery in San Rafael, Mendoza. Also the first refrigerator. Excellent place and guided tour. Very good guide and explanation of the history of the establishment. I highly recommend it.

  • It was the first Winery I visited and one that I most liked! It has a very interesting history. They gave us a nice tour and tasting. At the end of my trip, of course, I ended up buying this Winery wine!
