Return to hotel.
Transfer to the central wine-producing area of Mendoza. Guided visit of three famous wineries in Luján de Cuyo and Maipú.
We will start with the first two wineries chosen by our team of Sommeliers. Tour of the facilities, vineyards and the underground wine cellars, where the aging of wines happens in oak barrels. Many months later, when the wine is bottled, it will sit for a couple more months so that the wine acquires its final qualities of body and aroma.
The guide will share his ample knowledge with us by providing information about the qualities of the terrain, the elaboration process, care of the grapevines, conduction and irrigation systems, wine tasting tips and the proper selection of wine glasses for a tasting.
The visits will culminate in an exquisite wine tasting of the excellent varietals or blends from the wineries.
Around midday we will arrive at the third winery.
After a tour, we will have an unforgettable gourmet lunch in the winery’s restaurant.
In the afternoon, after having time to rest and chat with our guide, we will return to the hotel.
Start of the Andes Mountain Range Tour, visiting all the highlights of the Mendocinean Andes Mountain Range: Potrerillos, Uspallata, Puente Histórico de Picheuta (Historical Bridge of Picheuta), Polvaredas, Paramillos, Punta de Vacas (Cow Point), Ski Resort Los Penitentes, Puente del Inca (Inca’s Bridge), Parque Provincial Aconcagua (Aconcagua Pronvincial Park) where you can obtain a magnificent view of the Aconcagua peak. Continue on to the border town of ‘Las Cuevas’ (The Caves), the last Argentinean population on the route. Return to Puente del Inca (if you wish, our Customer Service staff can make a lunch reservation at the ‘Hosteria Puente del Inca’ Lodge). Return to Mendoza city and arrival by nightfall.
Free day for personal activities. At an agreed upon time, transfer to airport.
Every tour is carefully designed by our team of Sommeliers and tourism professionals to ensure maximum satisfaction of our clients.
In order to maintain excellent service, the selection of wineries and/or restaurant to be visited is subject to change.
If any of the selected wineries can’t have us the day of the tour (because of full visitor quota or an event, etc.) our Customer Service Department will suggest a different winery with similar characteristics.
