Stunning wineries, beautiful scenery, great wines and excellent food make for the perfect wine tour in Mendoza, Argentina.
We pick you up in the morning at 9am at your hotel and head for the vineyards of Luján de Cuyo, in the heart of Mendoza wine country. Our English-speaking guide will escort you around four premium wineries, old and modern, high tech and quaint, with a spectacular backdrop of snow-capped mountains.
First we take you to Dominio del Plata. This modern, expansive winery produces rich, concentrated Malbec and it is owned by Argentina's most famous female winemaker, Susana Balbo. Here we try the top label Expresivo in gorgeous surrondings with mountain views.
Next we have a tasting at the well appointed Renacer, a beautiful modern winery with landscaped gardens surrounded by lush vines. Here we enjoy a unique blending tasting of three Malbecs from three different areas, as well as a trying the winery's reserve labels.
At midday we visit Casarena, and enjoy an incredible gourmet lunch where seven wines are paired with seven dishes. You will taste Mendoza's finest Sauvignon Blanc, as well as excellent Syrah and Malbec.
We finish the day at Alta Vista, a beautifully restored historical winery owned by a French wine dynasty. Here we try the Argentine white Torrontes and the top label Alto, a regular winner of best red wine at international blind tastings..
We return to Mendoza city at 5pm.
