Reviewed 22 March 2013

The location is OK if you know how to navigate the bus system in Mendoza. Not too difficult going back and forth from the bodega to downtown, with a rental car even better. The arrival was good. The girl who works in the tasting room is super friendly... the family, not so much. We were shown the cabin and given the key and that was the end of our interaction with the owners of the vineyard. Breakfast was filling but the same every day. The pool was too dirty to swim in. The beds in the cabin are rock hard, if you love an extremely firm mattress you'll be in heaven. Kitchen necessities are all there. This is not a secluded cabin, there are neighbors. Neighbors with dogs that bark all night. The window of the cabin faces a street with traffic at all hours including loud, unmuffled motos and trucks to and from to the winery down the street as well as pedestrians. Upon check out there was a bit of a family squabble about who would take the key... awkward. There are some very friendly dogs at the property who will come to visit you! Overall, not what we were hoping for but I've stayed in worse; and, seriously overpriced for what you get.

Estimado Sr. , en relacion a su review , podemos decir que siempre estamos a disposicion de nuestros huespedes si lo necesitan...nosotros vivimos aqui ; si ud. hubiese requerido mas de nuestra atencion , pudo habernos preguntado, ...nunca lo supimos
Los ruidos molestos de perros que ladran, autos, camiones, motos , no es permanente y no lo podemos manejar; eso sucede fuera de nuestra propiedad ; no publicamos un servicio de absoluto silencio en medio de un campo ...quisieramos que asi sea , aunque creemos que es bastante tranquilo de todas maneras, quizas ud.pretendia otra cosa ...
Nuestras camas son nuevas y de primera calidad, quizas ud. esta acostumbrado a dormir en su cama blanda , y una nueva cama no le gusto .
Nuestro desayuno no es `a la carte` , solo los hoteles 5 estrellas pueden ofrecerlo, aunque nosotros podemos dar alternativas si nos lo piden ...nunca nos pidieron
Nuestra piscina nunca esta `sucia`, quizas pudo esta con algo de polvo por el viento , o alguna tormenta del dia anterior , quizas no es el agua donde ud. desea bañarse , aunque nosotros la usamos todos los dias sin problemas.
De todas maneras gracias por su review , le pedimos disculpas por no darle todo lo que ud. espera de un simple bed and breakfast en una finca productora de vinos y aceitunas.
Seria bueno que ponga su nombre y apellido para reclamar , porque no sabemos quien es ud...?? , y ud. sabe quienes somos nosotros

We stayed for two nights at Bodega Cavagnaro, having already spent two nights (November 20-21) in downtown Mendoza. Julian was a wonderful host, and I bought his last bottle of 2005 :-). The little cottage for his only guests was perfect, and we loved it. Having breakfast on the porch of the main house, and being at the only table there, was quite a treat. We also enjoyed the dogs, and spent some time sitting in his yard closer to the WiFi signal, but enjoying the solitude. We could walk to several cafes or restaurants, and a market about a block away, where we could buy cheese and bread. We would have like to have stayed longer, but had to go to Chile on the 22nd. We did the wine tour via taxi, and that was fine.

Room Tip: You only get one! Have fun.

Best choice ever! Was there with my family and we absolutely loved it. Very friendly and helpful family! Especially a great thanks to Julián who hosted a great evening with asado and delicious wines. Fantastic pool and atmosphere in the whole property. Definitely a place to go back to!

We stayed 3 nights. Julian is the host, winemaker and awesome at both. This property has only one accommodation which is a villa with a loft bedroom and 3 other twin beds - 1 upstairs and 2 down. The queen bed was very comfortable. Because the house is right next to the country street, there is some road noise, but not terrible and certainly not enough to keep us awake after a long day of wine tasting. There is a full kitchen in the villa. The continental breakfast is fixed by Claudia and consisted of fresh ham, cheese, breads and homemade preserves served on a nice patio overlooking the garden. Location is convenient to various wineries, suggest a car since distance can be longer than they seem on the map. Internet connection was quite good as long as you sat near the garden to connect...was not a problem. Enjoy!!!...we did.

Room Tip: Only one room to this property. The queen bed is up some stairs so if you are not up to it, suggest...

We arrived at Bodega Cavagnaro and were immediately impressed with the beautiful buildings and vineyards. It's a lovely setting with birds, huge trees, lots of shade, a swimming pool, etc.
Martha (who is employed at the bodega & gives wine tastings) greeted us immediately and was super friendly and helpful. She gave us a tour of the grounds and gave us some suggestions about bodegas to visit.

The accommodation is a stand-alone guest house with a living room, kitchen (with stove/oven, sink, etc.) and an upstairs loft bedroom - very cute but not the most social atmosphere (as your are the only guests staying here.)

As Martha was not working on Sunday, we found it almost impossible to get help/find someone to ask questions/help us figure out our route. This was extremely frustrating as we did not have an Argentine cell phone and could not phone around. Furthermore, although wifi is advertised, you have to be outside & close to Julian's (owner's) house to use it. This was even more frustrating since we were having trouble determining if any bodegas were open Sundays (we were getting conflicting information from different people.)

The 3 dogs that live on the property are very friendly, but seem to need more attention from the owners as they were constantly around us (guests.) We ate breakfast outside, and the dogs were always around/a bit annoying.

Also, the breakfast was fine, but it was the exact same thing all 3 mornings we were there - some toast, a bun, some ham, some cheese, a packaged muffin and some nuts, along with tea and coffee.

Location is great - right on the wine route.
We rented bikes from Maipu Bikes (the owners there were the NICEST people & were very helpful.)

Overall, beautiful place but I'd be more tempted to visit it on a wine tour than to stay there again.

Estimado Sr.: Muchas gracias por su review . quizas no encontro un ambiente muy social porque bloqueamos la casa de huespedes para quien se hospeda , seria mejor negocio para nosotros ubicar mas personas en ella , pero perderia el encanto de la privacidad que disfruto.
Nunca fuimos buscados por ud. para consultarnos por sus reservas y visitas deseadas. Tampoco nos preguntaron si podiamos prestarles el telefono o reservarles un tour en alguna bodega ...nosotros vivimos aqui y estamos todos los dias , incluso el dia domingo
Nuestros perros pueden ser molestos a veces , y justamente estan con gente porque estan acostumbrrados a estar con nosotros mucho tiempo del dia ...amamos a los perros que tenemos , disculpas si estuvieron molestos ; los podiamos sacar si nos pedian .
Nuestro desayuno no es `a la carte`, como puede ser en un hotel 5 estrellas , aunque podemos ofrecer ciertas alternativas si nos piden . Recordar que somos un bed and breakfast en una finca rural .Muchas gracias por venir!

I cannot say enough great things about Bodega Cavagnaro/Vina Maria! I stayed in the guesthouse and enjoyed having all that space to myself! The bed was exceptionally comfortable. I had the choice of enjoying breakfast inside the main house or on the spacious veranda. The dogs, Chula, Pirate and Alca were protective and friendly and gave me good company since I was travelling solo. The proprietor, Julian (he's handsome, ladies!) was very kind and helpful. Marta, the young woman who hosted the wine tasting, was very knowledgable. The location is only 10-15 minutes from downtown (taxi or car) and very accessible to all the vineyards by bike. I would definitely recommend this place, especially if you are travelling with a family or friends for the space and kitchen. Salud, Julian!

The Vina Maria is a great family run place.
A quiet small vineyard with really great value wines (they only produce Malbec). The Cavagnaro Malbec is only $48 pesos/bottle and is really good for the price.
A tasting is $25 pesos for two full glasses of two different Malbecs that they produce.
Definitely worth visiting since you can wander through the vineyards and olive trees. Such a beautiful family run estate!
