Enjoy privileged views of the Andes while tasting top quality wines


Located a 1hr 30min drive from Mendoza City and at 1000-1500 meters above see level, the Uco Valley covers cultivated areas of the departments of Tunuyan, Tupungato and San Carlos, on the foothills of the Andes at 150 kilometers from the city of Mendoza.

In the high areas which slope steeply, the soils are stony and the boulders appear mixed with thick sand and a little mud, and that is why they are not too fertile. Winters are hard and summers are warm with mild days and very cold nights, which benefit a very good color and tannin production in the grapes, and it allows having suitable raw material in order to obtain wines destined to a long aging.

With a privileged view of the Andes and in contact with the landscape, we will visit interesting wineries and taste different types of wines. We will delight a delicious lunch combined with top quality wines.

I kindly invite you to discover this magical place.

Itinerary

We will visit 2 wineries that use high tech production methods. Both produce world class quality wines.

Taste different kinds of wines, 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.
