Private tour in 2 wineries in Valle de Uco Sur with lunch and premium tasting
Along the historic Route 40, we travel through the Uco Valley, formed by the departments of Tunuyán, Tupungato and San Carlos. To the south of this magical valley, the most prestigious wineries in the world are located. The terroir of Uco, with its combination of high altitude lands (900 to 1300 meters above sea level), alluvial soils, scarce rainfall (more than 250 sunny days a year) and high thermal amplitude, allows the cultivation of the vine to be the first activity of the region and its wines a synonym of quality and elegance.
Under the custody of the Cordón del Plata, with its peaks between 4000 and 5000 meters above sea level, the Andes Mountain Range will give you the most wonderful views of this iconic valley of Argentine wine tourism. Its high altitude vineyards give birth to outstanding wines awarded by experts.
If you are an amateur enotourist and interested in discovering the world of wine, this excursion to wineries in the Uco Valley is for you. We will be accompanied by guides who know this world to perfection and will teach us the most valuable secrets of the winemaking process. They will also tell us about winemaking, an art with a great history in Mendoza, and in the story we will learn how generation after generation the family culture is shared and with the help of technology, the quality of the labels is improved every year.
This premium tour includes a tour of the vineyards where we will find very interesting information about the different grape varieties and characteristics. It also includes a visit to the winemaking and storage rooms with their stupendous architecture, ending with a great tasting of the best bottles of the place.
Finally, a delicious gourmet lunch will be waiting for us, in the restaurant of the second winery we visit, to delight us with the pleasure of pairing flavors and textures with the best wines.
At SAK Wine & Travel we want our trips to be a transforming experience for those who visit us and we know that sustainable tourism is the tool to achieve it. That is why in every excursion you do with us you are contributing to the care of Mendoza’s water.
