Four days exploring Mendoza

Mendoza is the heart of Argentina's wine industry and for wine lovers. The climate here really lends itself to viniculture, with almost constant sunshine and water supplied by the run-off from the Andes which loom majestically on the horizon. As well as enjoying the good-life sampling the excellent wine in Mendoza, there is a plethora of possible activities such as rafting in the foothills of the Andes to enjoying the many world-class restaurants which we can recommend for you.


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.
