Full Day Mendoza Wineries Tour - Central Valley

Our expert local guide will collect you from your hotel and bring you for an enjoyable sample of the different wineries in the Mendoza area.

The Central Valley or Primera Zona (the closest to the city of Mendoza) includes the counties of Luján de Cuyo, Maipú, Guaymallén and Godoy Cruz. This is the home of Malbec and where some of the most prestigious Argentine wineries are located. Originally from Bordeaux, France, this variety found the ideal place to prosper in Mendoza given the agro-climatic conditions of the area.

It's a private tour and can be entirely specialised to your requirements, just let your travel designer know if you have any special requests.

During the tour we'll visit three different wineries, we suggest a mix of smaller, boutique establishments and the larger operations, to give you a chance to see the contrasts and differences. During the visit you'll always be accompanied by your private guide, though during the visits and tastings themselves you'll also be with the wineries' own guide (and there may be other guests). We can arrange for visits to be entirely private if you prefer.

Finally, in the afternoon, we stop at one of the top Bodega restaurants (such as La Tupina or Ruca Malen) for a chance to really enjoy the wine as it is meant to be; with great food. You have a gourmet tasting lunch paired with wines from the Bodega.


Private full day wine tasting tour in the northern valley Lujan de Cuyo and Maipu with lunch

You will be collected from your hotel after breakfast by your local expert guide to begin your private full day's tour of the best wineries situated in Mendoza's Lujan de Cuyo and Maipu valleys. This tour will be tailored on the day to your preferences, as there exists a nice variation of larger to more boutique and family-owned wineries to choose from in this area. At each winery you do visit there will be a tour and wine tasting session. Lunch will be at a restaurant or bodega of your choice along the tour, with helpful recommendations made by your guide too. You will be delivered back to your hotel at the end of the day.

Private Tour of the Perito Moreno Glacier

You will be brought by private vehicle through the national park, a beautiful drive of some 2.5 hours with stops to enjoy the view, including the Corner of Sighs, where you get your first full view of the Glacier. During the drive, you might catch a glimpse of red and grey foxes fleeing across the heathery landscape, whilst in the distance cinnamon-coloured guanaco deer balance on rocky crags and below, large Patagonian hares leap from bushes across streams. Along the roadside crawl little armadillos and if you are very lucky, you might just see the tawny back of a puma. Rosy flamingos gather at the water’s edge while hawks and kites hover over the hillside, eyeing scurrying voles and other rodents. And, just possibly, way way up above, you might spy the magnificent silhouette of the condor.

Arriving at the humbling sight of the vast Perito Moreno Glacier, your guide will then take you on a tour along the specially built walkways. These give you superb viewpoints and photo taking opportunities while your guide brings to life the environmental and local importance of the glacier.
