Over 90+ Wine Tour

Over 90+ Wine tour

After breakfast, we will begin our tour at Mendel winery where Mariela, who is in charge of hosting and tasting, will tell you about their treasures. Roberto de la Mota, partner and chief winemaker at Mendel, is the son of Raul de la Mota, who is sometimes said to be Argentina’s winemaker of the century, so important was his work in developing quality wine in this country. The best part arrives when we open the tasting room’s door to enjoy their awesome wines: Malbec 2010, 2009 and the Unus 2009.

Next, we will visit Vina Cobos. The wines of Vina Cobos are the result of a shared dream inspired by the passion of Paul Hobbs, one of the world’s most famous winemakers, and two partners from a wine-producing culture deeply rooted in European traditions. The inaugural 1999 vintage of Cobos Malbec received the highest score at the time for any Argentinean wine upon release from Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator.

Finally, the tour takes you to Melipal. The winery is surrounded by willow trees, small canals and vineyards with a magnificent view of the Andes mountain range. The tour and tasting lunch at Melipal really highlights Argentina’s love for food and wine. The restaurant is a gorgeous, relaxing place with sweeping views of the vineyards and a fantastic patio alongside their pond. We'll enjoy a luxurious lunch paired with their superb wines.

Super Premium Wine Tour & Uco Valley Wineries Tour

Breakfast at the hotel. Traveling south from Mendoza city, we will ride a bicycle into the countryside covered in patchwork fields, swaying Alamos, and the jagged peaks of the Andes Mountains. The destination is the Uco Valley. Well inside the first mountainsides of the Andes foothills, this valley presents the highest altitudes at which wines are produced in Mendoza.

Our first ride will be to Bodega Salentein. Respectful of the land´s vibrantly textured past, Salentein is equally inspired by the land´s remarkably promising future. It is this delicate balance of old and new- of blending the tradition of long-celebrated European winemaking methods with the bold ingenuity of the New World- that defines the Salentein style.

We continue south along the rolling countryside to get to Bodega Andeluna. Andeluna would look quite at home in a remote part of Texas as a hunting lodge. This is not accidental; Andeluna has deep roots in Texas. The winery was founded in 2003 by Ward Lay (son of the founder of Frito Lays - the parent of Walker crisps). Situated at the foot of the Andes just outside of the town of Tupungato in the Uco Valley, Andeluna has magnificent views of the mountains. The huge windows of the dining room are designed to take advantage of the effect, allowing us to enjoy the view as much as the food. All recipes are fully made of natural products, which are grown in this exceptional place.
