Cooking class at Zuccardi Winery in Maipú
Get ready to cook tasty regional dishes and share a unique moment at Casa del Visitante restaurant. In this exclusive tour we will experience a different wine and gastronomic experience at Bodega Santa Julia.
We will pick you up at your hotel early in the morning and head to Maipú. Upon arrival we will visit Casa del Visitante and enjoy an exquisite breakfast among the vineyards. Then we will go down to the cellar, an ideal place to listen to each of the cooking tips that we will be taught during the class.
After putting on our aprons we will start with the bread. We will mix water and flour, and knead until we reach a homogeneous consistency. While respecting the natural fermentation process, we will learn the techniques to make “empanadas” with different fillings and toppings. Then we will make delicious pastries with quince jelly dipped in syrup, an unforgettable regional dessert. Throughout the class we will be accompanied by exquisite Zuccardi varietals that we will be tasting.
With the flasks burning in the clay oven, we will go upstairs to take the preparations. Nothing better than a delicious fresh wine from Santa Julia to face the heat while we wait for our dishes to be ready.
With a beautiful view of the mountain we will sit down to enjoy an exquisite homemade lunch, made with love and healthy ingredients. The table will never be short of wine to toast this unforgettable culinary experience.
We will return to the hotel with a happy heart and full hands, because you will take home an apron as a souvenir so you can cook at home applying everything you learned about our traditions.
Our trips are designed so that when you return home you feel that something has changed and we know that sustainable tourism is the way to achieve it. In SAK Wine & Travel we contribute to the Sustainable Development Goal No. 6: Water, a fundamental resource for Mendoza.
