We booked in for just the wine tour. As we learned from previous tours the people that make reservations are usually stuck with the timing of the driver that they hire - that is - they are more than likely going to be late. Tours start on the average from 10 to 30 minutes after the specified time due to this Argentinian quirk. It can (and did for us) work if you are going to be late yourselves - they will wait and will accommodate you. On with the tour - our guide (always a woman) was very attentive and explained the history of the vines and the vineyard in a very professional and informative way. This particular facility has parts that are over 100 years old and the owners have done a marvellous job of incorporating this history into the operation. The tour was one of the better ones we took on our trip. The wine tasting area is superb and overlooks some of the smaller tanks. We tasted a white (Reserva (2010) Chardonnay)- very buttery and not overly oaked and a red (the 2007 Cheval des Andes) - just a marvellous wine that could still age a few more years. Highly recommend reserving a tasting tour - cost was $30/person ($6 Can).
