Wine Tours

Hi,

My partner and I are heading to Mendoza for a few days and are interested in doing a wine tour. The thing is that neither of us are actually wine drinkers! Is a tour still worthwhile if we're not interested in the tasting or buying?

We do drink sparkling wine though; are there any tours that incorporate this? (sorry if this is a stupid question!)

Thanks!

I'll try to help

The wine route includes three zones defined with more than 50 wineries

if you are not a specialist maybe you know one of them will suffice. Maybe you can do it by yourself (away from the city 15/20 km)

These wineries produce sparkling visiting them you will have more chances.

 

Bodegas Bianchi (San Rafael).

Bodega Norton (Agrelo, Lujan de Cuyo).

Small Bodega (La Puntilla, Luján de Cuyo).

Bodega Dante Robino (Perdriel).

Bodega Romero Gei (The Bermejo, Las Heras)

Bodega Saenz Briones (Chacras of Coria).

Bodega Santa Ana (Guaymallén).

Bodega Zuccardi (Maipú)

other data. every Thursday varietal can taste and good music in the Mirador Terrace Garden City of Mendoza, with free admission.

check out these sites.

Hola BarbadosSecret!

In some of the half day tour to visit the Winerys you usually also visit an olive plantation- and taste some olive oil. This I think is a good option for you, to learn about the main production of Mendoza (wine), see beatiful landscape, but also learn about other products they produce.

I think you still would enjoy it if take the half day tour!

Have fun!

I did the cooking class at Casa Del Visitante, which started with a breakfast of rich dense dark chocolate cake and Carmel brownies, fresh squeezed orange juice and coffee. Too much sugar for me in morning but tried items and they were fresh and tasty. Then proceeded to class (where I discovered I was only student), right in the restaurant kitchen with staff, making bread, several varieties of empanadas, and dessert pastry which I was given to eat after cooking. After eating a few empanadas, and while bread was baking, I did a wine tasting in the tasting room (separate from restaurant). When I returned to finish my goods, I was told it was time for lunch if I was ready! I thought what I had made was lunch. I was seated in the restaurant and treated to a feast of fresh mixed salad, a variety of grilled vegetables, multiple meats, with multiple glasses of paired wine. I thought I was going to explode when I left. The food was fresh and delicious and the servings more than ample. The wine pours with lunch were also very generous and the staff was very attentive which I appreciated very much as a solo diner. I was given the logo apron from cooking class as a momento. The experience was great value for cost and a great way to spend the day.

I didn't do it myself but this one had a lot of travellers raving about it when I was there last year:

We just got back and there are actually some beautiful wineries and there are a few that do have sparkling wine. I'd suggest contacting the guide we used (if you are interested in having a guide or drive) mauricio molina at mauriciomolina1@yahoo.com

He made our appointments, knows everyone and will make it a special and personal experience for you!
