A feast for the senses in the cradle of Malbec


Known as the cradle of Malbec, Luján de Cuyo is located 20 km away from Mendoza City. Here you can see the perfect combination of modern and colonial style architecture. The most prestigious and recognized cellars from Latin America are here.

The soils of this oasis are loam to clayey-loam with plenty of thick materials: gravel and boulder. They have very good permeability, they are poor in organic matter and they do not have salinity problems. The climate varies from cold to mild as you go from the south to the north, which makes it suitable for allowing the ideal grape ripening.

In this tour you'll get the chance to internalize through the senses, about the benefits offered to us by the land. We will visit two wineries and taste their wines afterwards, whereas at the third one we will enjoy lunch combined with different types of wines.

Itinerary

We will visit 2 different wineries, the first one is a traditional winery; the second one is a young winery that uses high tech production methods. Both produce world class quality wines.

Taste different kinds of wines from tanks, barrels and bottles, from the entry levels to the top range.
Learn about wine production and how this affects the style and taste of the wine.

We finish the tour with an exquisite 5-course lunch in a winery!

The menu is specifically designed to match the wine, each course is paired with a different wine that compliments the cuisine perfectly.

Note that the schedule can be adjusted according to your needs.
