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 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 Mendel, an old historical winery run by one of Argentina's most famous winemakers Roberto de la Motta. The vineyard's 100-year old vines produce excellent conentrated Malbec and we try the winery's top label Unos, rated 94-points by Robert Parker JR.
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 Club Tapiz, a wine lodge, winery and olive house. Here we have an incredible gourmet lunch where four wines are paired with four dishes. You will taste Mendoza's finest Sauvignon Blanc, as well as excellent Syrah and Malbec.
We finish the day at Benegas Lynch, a boutique, historical winery owned by an old Mendoza wine family responsible for bringing the first noble French grapes to Mendoza. Here we try a variety of wines and have a special tasting of their top Bordeaux style blend Meritage. We return to Mendoza city at 5pm.
Price: $185 US per person (including winery lunch and all the tastings).
Our wine tour groups are small and private (never more than 8 people though we do take larger groups of friends and family).
Each booking includes a Mendoza wine tour gift pack with a Wine Republic magazine, one of our favorite boutique wines, tasting vouchers and tickets for an open-top bus city tour (pre-paid by Paypal internet bookings only: 3 days in advance).
Please note: Most wineries close at weekends in Mendoza. We still do tours on Saturdays and Sundays but we cannot guarantee that you will get a small group tour at each winery. This is a sample itinerary and is subject to change.
Our wine guides are the best, and eager to give instruction in wine appreciation if necessary and tell you the background to Argentina's fascinating wine heritage. Transport is in a well maintained, air-conditioned vehicle and chilled mineral water is on hand all day and throughout the wine tour.
