Half day wine tour. Visit 2 wineries in Lujan de Cuyo.
This tour takes place in Lujan de Cuyo. This productive region is the cradle of Malbec in Argentina because of the vast extension of this grapevine planted. This valley irrigated by ancient canals, holds many historical and new wineries. Besides most of them are blended with country houses, tree lined streets and wide vineyards.
Led by insider guides, we will visit two different world-class wineries, where we’ll be able to lear about the winemaking process, fermentation and aging methods and more. In addition, we’ll also get an explanation at the vineyards to learn about grape growing and all different jobs that take place there.
On this half day wine tour, around 9 am we are arriving to the first winery where the hosts receive us. After a short introduction we go straight to the visit. While touring we’ll see Malbec and other grape vines, all the machines that they use for the wine making and tanks as well. Sometimes, the winemakers show up to share some of their experiences with us. Some other times, due to the time of the year, we are able to taste straight from the tanks.
Furthermore, on this short tour we’ll learn what goes on from the vineyards to the bottled wine, as well as the steps to taste a good Wine.
