Full description
This tour amidst vineyards will show you how some human effort has transformed the desert into a modern-day oasis. You will learn all about how this was achieved through an irrigation system of canals inherited from the Huarpes, the native inhabitants of this region. You will visit two or three selected wineries in the Luján de Cuyo or Maipú regions. This is an area where your enologist guides will explain the process of wine making. Following this educational lesson, you will also have the chance to taste some of the best wines in the region in both wineries. You will then visit an olive oil factory, another specialty of the Mendoza region. At the conclusion of your tour, you will return to your accommodation in Mendoza City.

Happy and enthusiastic team between driver and Spanish and English guides. Interesting to see wine making processes in the desert. Dis not expect much from oilve factory but was positively surprised they have excellent variety of oil and olives and more so interesting balsamic vinegar production, all very good in tasting. Good way to get introduced into Mendoza wine and oil region.

We didn't expect the group to be as big as it was (over 30 people), but it was managed fairly well. It would have been a better value if they had split the group into two for 1) better transportation (the big bus wasn't easy for small vineyard roads and low tree branches; the pick-up that required us transferring to another vehicle wasn't great and picking up a lot of others en route wasn't ideal) and 2) less time waiting around for people to purchase, use the bathroom, finishing a tasting, etc. We probably could have fit in a 3rd winery visit if we'd had smaller groups. The wineries and olive oil factory we visited were great tours (interesting and not too repetitive if you've done other winery visits), though the wines themselves weren't that great. A third winery visit/tasting would have made this experience feel more complete, as only 2 with so-so wines felt a bit anti-climactic.

It was very good, great cost benefit only at the olive oil factory I thought the woman speaks very fast, as if she no longer likes to talk about the same subject every day ... In the wineries the first one I found a little tumultuous with only one person presenting, and location tight, it was a smaller winery. At the biggest winery, the staff had a love for explaining and presenting, I thought it was well organized and divided into several groups.
