Visit 2 beautiful wineries in the rich wine-growing region of Mendoza. Under the expert tuition of an oenologist, you will learn about prestige wine production and techniques in the regions of Maipú and Lujan.
What to Expect
It is the plentiful water from the nearby Andes and the mineral rich soil that has turned the Cuyo Desert of Mendoza in to one of the world’s finest wine-growing regions. On this half-day excursion you will travel to prestige wineries and get to sample the exquisite produce.
Your tour starts with an early morning pick-up from centrally located Mendoza hotels where you will meet your oenologist guide. You will then embark on a trip through the Andes to the wineries and vineyards of the Cuyo. The agricultural oasis is shadowed by the mighty mountains and rendered a green desert in full bloom.
Depending on the schedule and availability of the wineries, you will travel to Maipú and visit producers such as La Rural, Tempus Alba or Viña el Cerno. Your guide will explain the techniques of wine tasting, wine production, the importance of cork and the correct way to handle a glass to get the best of the wine.
You will also visit the Lujan region to take in an esteemed winery, such as Achaval Ferrer, Tapiz, Catena Zapata or Cavas de Weinert. You will soon be a wine tasting pro. Purchase some fine wines to enjoy later in the day or ship back home, before the return journey and drop-off at your city center hotel by mid-afternoon.
