  • One of the wineries that deserve to be known between the offer of places in the area. Great Winery and beautiful experience being in that place since the aroma surrounds you the peace and harmony of the music that sounds softly

  • Nice winery with English tours. Our tour included a horse-drawn carriage tour through the beautiful vineyards. Nice views of the surrounding hills. Other tours went in an motorized open van farther up the hill. We also saw the barrel room where wine is ripening in oak barrels while listening to Gregorian chant music to create vibrations, which are supposed to make the wine even better! Great tasting of 5 wines is also included in the tour. Wines were very expensive, though, so we did not buy one.
  • A nice wine tasting tour. Just like any other however the guide was chatty and explained the whole process pretty well. You learn a bit about wine tasting, and they make pretty good wines, which are mostly exported to the US and Europe. The whole structure that houses the storage, wine tasting room etc is constructed based on feng shui. Worth a visit
  • Very nice place and wines!!!
  • NOT to BE MISSED! And also for me is a must not have lunch in the restaurant of the renowned Atalpa Fuegos Argentine Chef Francis Mallmamm. The restaurant is located amidst the vineyards of Viña Montes.
