We invite you to experience the wine culture of Mendoza hands-on,with an original idea, entertaining and romantic: visit the wineries and have a picnic in the beautiful gardens of a winery, surrounded by vineyards protected by hundred-year-old tree groves.
Come alive by experiencing a wonderful moment that will live on in your memories of your travels through our land.
At an agreed upon time in the morning, our host, an experienced wine guide will pick up our guests at their accommodations to start this fantastic wine experience.
We head towards the district of Maipú in the Central Region, known as the “birthplace of wine” in Mendoza, and we will travel through the characteristic landscape of vineyards, vegetable gardens and fruit tree orchards.
On the way, our guide will provide our guests with information about production processes, wine aging, the characteristic varietals in the region, the care for the grapevines, conduction and irrigation systems, properties of the terroir, always open to questions and exchanging opinions.
When we arrive at the first winery we will be welcomed by the staff who will give us a tour of the facilities while telling us about the history of the winery and the stages that occur from the harvest until finally the wine, after a long wait and arduous work of all the people involved in the process, is ready for consumption.
We will tour the wine cellar where the wine is placed to age for months, in ideal conditions, first in oak barrels and then in bottles.
Once we have completed the circuit a wine tasting will be waiting for us where we can appreciate the exquisite product, resulting from a lot of time and effort.
The tour will continue to the second winery that has been selected by our team of sommeliers. After a complete run through the rooms we will be able to notice the differences and similarities between this winery and the last.
After tasting their magnificent wines, we will have time to enjoy the beautiful gardens at the winery while having a picnic that includes a large basket of regional products and delicacies, wine, mineral water, individual sized sparkling wine and a large variety of desserts, some prepared by the chef and some fresh seasonal fruits.
Under the shade of a tree in the case of heat or on a blanket in the grass if the season allows us to enjoy the warming Mendocinean sun, we will have an unforgettable time where the wine, local cuisine and chosen site for this delight, will leave their mark in the memory of our guests.
At sunset we will start heading back to Mendoza with the certainty of having shared a wonderful picnic in the vineyards of Mendoza.
Full day. Approximately 7-8 hours.
