Impeccable. Rich. Tasty. Good service. Very good looking waitresses. Best meat- starting with Chorizi, then Morsija, then matambrito. Then again. Then lomo and asado. Then chiritto. Yhen, as a finale, choriso and matambrito. The wine was Torontes, a Roussane comoatible, and for msin we took the Aluvional La Consulta. Tears all along.

Don't miss..!!!

Zuccardi was the first Mendoza area vineyard that my husband and I visited. We started with the regional lunch and wine pairings. The food was literally endless. The first course was empanadas with Chardonnay, both of which were great. This was followed by about 6 vegetable dishes and 7 different grilled meats served with Malbec, yum. Finally, a delicious postre with dessert wine and coffee. We could only eat about 40% of everything, which felt a bit wasteful, but was overall wonderful. Service was amazing - our glasses were never empty. We would certainly recommend this to anyone spending a day in Maipu.

This restaurant is part of Zuccardi Winery and very popular so you should make reservations. I had lunch here, and it was a wonderful selection of BBQd meats and vegetables, as well as a very fresh salad from their organic garden. The bread was also quite interesting, with a malbec pink colored bread and a very tasty olive bread. They also have their own olive oil made on site, and you can taste three different types with your meal. The wine, of course, is excellent, and they have a very helpful sommelier on staff. We started with a sparkling with the salad and vegetables, and then moved onto malbec to pair with the meats. The ambience is nice but more on the casual side with options to eat inside or out. Service was polite. I would definitely return, but next time would like to try their other restaurant ,which is called Pan & Olivia.

My mother and I spent a wonderful day at this winery in Feb. After a day of doing generic bus wine tours we decided to make our own visit to Zuccardi and try the Argentine BBQ lunch with wine pairings. This winery was beautiful and perfect for a nice relaxing day of wine tasting!

We made a lunch reservation for 2pm and arrived at the winery an hour early to walk around and enjoy some wine. We decided to not take the tour, but instead bought a bottle and sat outside right by the vineyard for a glass. We seemed to have the whole winery to ourselves!

The lunch was great! We had about 6 courses and pretty much unlimited wine to go along! The wait staff was very friendly as well. All of this ended up costing about $35 USD a person!

We'd also like to thank Torey, an English speaking guide at the winery, for helping us plan our perfect day!

I would definitely recommend visiting this winery!

Working in the restaurante industry, my standards are pretty high when it comes to judging other places... and La casa del Visitante and Zuccardi where just incredible. We got the chance to not only eat some of the best regional food and drink outstanding wine, but also chat and talk with the staff, getting to know them a little better and their story. The premises are also beautiful, surrounded by mountains, vinyards and joy for life This place is an overall fantastic experience, we left with a purple smile on all of our faces. Don't miss this!!.
