Cooking class at Bodega Lamadrid Winery in Luján de Cuyo
Get ready to fuse unique regional flavors! We will enjoy an exclusive cooking class at Lamadrid Winery while tasting their renowned wines.
We will visit Las Compuertas, a district in the department of Luján de Cuyo with residential and agricultural areas. You will be amazed by its streets of endless groves, the irrigation ditches that irrigate the vineyards, its landscapes and the charm of its people.
We will start the day early to live a unique experience. Early in the morning, a Sak driver will pick you up at your accommodation. Upon arrival at the winery, we will be welcomed by the chef and his team at the Los Bocheros Restaurant. They will tell us the history of the place and we will be served a blend of whites, a fresh and aromatic wine, to start the visit. We will visit the vineyard school, the cellar where we will taste exclusive wines straight from the barrel. And before heading to the kitchen, we will be told the story of a family winery that is more than 100 years old.
Now it’s time! It’s time to put on our aprons and start discovering the typical flavors of Argentina with fires, ovens and grills. For that we will use fresh and natural ingredients from the garden and first quality cuts. We will start with our starter, a classic dish, the “empanada mendocina”. The chef will share tips to make the filling tastier and perfect “repulgues”. We will continue with the main dish, the meat to the dough, and we will learn the right cooking time in the clay oven and the secrets to make it a Creole delicacy.
Between relaxed chats and new aromas we will taste the different varietals of the winery to make this cooking class unforgettable.
After finishing our dishes we will sit at one of the tables near the beautiful gardens of the winery, where we will pair the food created by ourselves with premium wines from Lamadrid.
After 4 hours we will happily return to our lodging. Discovering new flavors and knowing how to cook them is a unique and incomparable experience.
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.
