Mendoza wine tours
Our Mendoza wine tours invite you to visit a wide range of wineries along Mendoza’s wine country. The main three areas: Maipu, Uco Valley and Lujan de Cuyo, cradle of Malbec, are located at the foothills of the Andes in the center-west side of Argentina. This dessertic and rocky region holds more than one thousand wineries and a vast territory of vineyards planted with all European and American varieties of grapes as Malbec, Bonarda, Torrontes, Cabernets and a lot more.
Viticulture in Argentina began at the times of immigration when our grandparents came from Europe in most cases trying to find a new home. The first grape vines, as well as olive trees, were brought in long ship journeys crossing the Atlantic Ocean to arrive in Buenos Aires and then by train to Mendoza where the best weather and soil conditions are given for the development of the wine industry.
Nowadays more than one hundred wineries are open to tourism. Each one has acquired its own personality and a unique style trying to develop the best wines as possible. Others, have added in site extra attractions for visitors, inviting local and international artists to expose all kind of art pieces. Into the wineries all kind of events take place as well. From art galleries to weddings, product’s presentations, wine fairs and business meetings. But the pearl of each day, are the thousands of wine tastings that tourists are able to take.
A wine tour in Mendoza is a must if you love wine and visit Argentina!
