Colonial style winery tour
Mendoza is known worldwide for the quality of its wines. Winemaking has a great history in our province and the walls of the classic colonial style wineries keep the secrets that we will discover in this tour.
The areas of Luján de Cuyo, Maipú and Valle de Uco surprise us with their vineyards, some of them more than 100 years old, their irrigation ditches and their view of the imposing Andes Mountains.
Early in the morning our driver will pick you up at your accommodation. We will begin this journey into the past by learning about Mendoza’s winemaking history with one of SAK’s expert guides, visiting places that take us back to the beginning of the 20th century, when immigrants laid the foundations of winemaking in our land.
Upon arrival at the first winery, the host guide will explain the influence of the foreign culture reflected in the elegant colonial style architecture. We will walk through long external galleries, small and warm internal patios, we will observe high wooden ceilings and wide brick walls that protect the bottles in hidden cellars that maintain the ideal temperature in a natural way.
During the visit we will learn about the traditional methods used to make the distinguished wines that we will taste and we will end the tour with a delicious gourmet experience: a lunch paired with excellent labels, to live a wonderful afternoon with all the senses.
The history, the places and the quality of the wines will give a unique style to this experience designed exclusively for connoisseurs of the terroir. Charge your cell phone battery to 100%! You will take lots of pictures of the traditional constructions of Mendoza’s wineries.
