Mendoza is the capital city of the homonymous Province, in Argentina. It is located 1,037 kilometers away from Buenos Aires, in a region of foothills and high plains, on the eastern side of the Andes. This beautiful city is the fourth largest metropolitan area in the country and it is surrounded by the largest wine producing area in Latin America. As one of nine cities worldwide in the network of Great Capitals of Wine, Mendoza offers you the perfect destination to enjoy the best Argentinean wine while exploring a few of the hundred wineries and dazzling landscapes of this region.

We recommend to a high-end property located in Agrello, in Lujan de Cuyo.
Lujan del Cuyo is a beautiful region located on the outskirts of Mendoza City, only at 30-minute drive from Mendoza’s city center an 1.100 kilometers from Buenos Aires City with a landscape dominated by vineyards and framed by the Beautiful Andean Mountains. Lujan de Cuyo is one of the most important destinations when talking about Enotourism or wine tourism. The area has privileged conditions to grow Malbec grapes that have been the key ingredient to world class wine. Moreover, it has dozens of wineries that open their doors not only to wine tastings but also they offer you the opportunity to spend the night in this stunning valley and live unique experiences ranging from enjoying the dazzling scenery to participate and learn the daily routines of winegrowing

This family project, created by Susana Balbo, is dedicated to high-quality wine-making. Susana Balbo Wines offers the opportunity to discover Argentina’s typical varietals as well as cutting-edge wines through themed wine tastings that focus on enhancing each of the wines' charm & potential. Susana’s progressive and entrepreneurial spirit lead her to choose a young and dynamic team for her company. All of Susana Balbo Wines' team shares the same excitement for the field of the winemaking process and a collective effort for constant innovation. Susana Balbo was recently recognized as one of the 10 Most Influential Women in Wine by The Drinks Business. She is the only woman selected from Argentina, and this is the second time she has been included on the list of pioneering women who are pushing the limits in the wine industry across the globe. She first appeared on the list in 2012, and in 2015 Drinks Business also named her “Woman of the Year”. Susana Balbo Wines obtained more than 90 points in all the wines presented to Stephen Tanzer during his visit to Argentina this year, outperforming or maintaining the scores obtained last year. Susana Balbo Signature is a range of wines in which Argentina’s first female winemaker imprints her own seal of innovation and elegance. Both whites and reds in this range were equally distinguished by Tanzer in his report Once Marginal Terroirs Take Argentina’s Wines to New Heights, published by Vinous.

Lujan de Cuyo Wine Tour, Exclusive: Viña Cobos, Catena Zapata & Ruca Malen Wineries Private Service (Personalized) | Vehicle and English-speaking guide at disposal | Duration: Full day (8 hours approx.) | Visits and tastings at Viña Cobos and Catena Zapata Wineries, and 3-course lunch at Ruca Malen Winery Restaurant, with soft drinks and wine, are included | Mineral water on board.
Today explore the different microclimates in the district of Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo. Your first visit will be to Viña Cobos Winery. The wines of Viña Cobos are the result of a shared dream inspired by the passion of Paul Hobbs, one of the world’s most famous winemakers and two partners from a wine-producing culture deeply rooted in European traditions. The inaugural 1999 vintage of Cobos Malbec received the highest score at the time for any Argentinean wine upon release from Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator. Then we will leave for Nicolás Catena's winery, Catena Zapata. You’ll be surprised to discover a pristine Mayan temple tucked away in the vineyards of Mendoza. The impressive, cream-stoned pyramid is the showcase winery for Catena Zapata, one of Argentina’s most prestigious winemakers. They were the first to bring these high-quality wines into the international market, and it is Catena Zapata that deserves the credit for alerting the world to the potential of Argentina. The winery is now top of the Argentine wine pyramid. The label demands high prices and has attracted gushing reviews. In fact, it’s hard to get your hands on a bottle here as most are exported. What remains is for a privileged few. Now does that sound aristocratic? We continue to Ruca Malén Winery where we´ll enjoy a one-of-a-kind dining experience. From the foothills of the Andes Mountains, the focus of Ruca Malen is producing wines that speak of the land and their commitment to the environment. There, you will taste their entire wine list, including their famous and iconic "Kinien". The dining room is located inside a glass room in the vineyards with a view of the Andes. The menu is amazing and the courses are universally excellent, with clever taste combinations, great presentation, and appropriate wine matching.

At the south of Mendoza, we choose one of the best wineries, top-quality tastings, and a harmonized lunch in a winery restaurant with one of the best views of the Andes. Among several wineries in the region, today we will visit a family project, Zuccardi Piedra Infinita. Sebastian Zuccardi grew up in a family of strong visionary and innovative spirit. Since 1963 his grandfather, Alberto Zuccardi, engineer, planted the first acre of vines in Maipú, Mendoza. Familia Zuccardi has continued growing and developing until positioning itself as an important benchmark for Argentina’s winemaking industry. From his father, José Alberto Zuccardi, Sebastian inherited the determination and desire for a lifelong pursuit of excellence. Nowadays Sebastian, the third generation of the family, is working in front of a young agricultural and winemaking team, responsible for producing wines with the highest standards of quality in the Uco Valley. Finca Piedra Infinita is located in the centre of an alluvial cone of dejection, giving our grounds a marked heterogeneity. Through agronomic work and viticulture, we seek to respect the heterogeneity of the soils, highlighting the essence of each terroir and managing each plant differently to get the grapes that express the identity of their source. Here is Zuccardi winery. Piedra Infinita Cuisine: The Piedra Infinita restaurant opened in March 2016. Located in Paraje Altamira, Uco Valley, facing the majestic Andes Mountains, it has a capacity of 50 seats. In this unique mountain scenery and vineyards that give us our winery, you can enjoy a menu of 4 steps with regional products with a delicate gourmet expression paired with Zuccardi wines. Visits and tastings: Visitors can tour the winery and live the experience of touring the vineyards discovering the characteristics and peculiarities of the different soils that give identity to our wines.
