Finca Ogawa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 March 2011

We spent one week at Finca Ogawa in a big house with a really well equipped kitchen. If you love to cook it's a great place to spend time at and just enjoy life in a calm way. You won't find a restaurant street nearby, but just hang around under the grapes outside is great. We got access to their herb garden where they have a lot of herbs and vegetables. If you want to go to Tunyan it won't cost you a lot to order a taxi (around 50 pesos).

We got picked up from the busstation in Tunuyan and after some shopping we went to the place. It's is not a hotel, you rent a house (atleast for us) and then you take care of yourself (we didn't see the "owners" after they left us there), which suited us perfectly.

There is a family living at the finca who are really nice.

If you are a family or two couples the value is GREAT, but if you are just two people you pay quite a lot, but still you have a really good kitchen to cook in yourself.

Finca Ogawa is a great base from where you can go on wine tours, tours to the Andes among other things. The "owner" was a great help for us to put us in contact with a great girl that arranged everything for us.

We had a really nice week at Finca Ogawa and if you are looking for some privacy and don't want to have service the whole time this place is great.

We were looking for an adventure around Mendoza and found Finca Ogawa to be an excellent way to discover the joys of the wine region. We found the farm and its environment to be very warm, quiet, relaxing, back-to-nature, get your hands dirty, earthy and many more superlatives. We cant say enough good things about the owners, John and Martha, and their hospitality and generosity (especially with the Finca wines). The on-site Finca foreman, Tito, and his family were very helpful as well. We worked about 2 hours per day in the Raspberry patch and the flower/vegetable garden early in the morning to avoid the hotter parts of the day.
The two bedroom Casa Barbara, where we stayed, is very rustic but comfortable with generous sized bedrooms/bathroom/living room and a great fully equipped kitchen where we prepared many a meals. We particularly enjoyed the covered patio outside our cottage where many an afternoon and evening were spent enjoying the breeze, reading books and consuming the bottles of wines from the bodegas we visited every day. The fresh fruits, vegetables and eggs that we gathered every day from the Finca were a delight to prepare and eat. We also did an Asado one evening with all the families on the parilla behind the cottage with the help of Tito's wife and John doing the grilling, and keeping everything flowing smoothly with the Finca Ogawa Malbec.
We would highly recommend renting a car while at the Finca as it is about 80km from Mendoza, and you need it to get to the bodegas in the region. There are some very good wineries within a 30km radius, but one needs to call ahead to make reservations for tastings. The car also comes in handy to go in to the nearby towns and restaurants. We would highly recommend the restaurant at the Uco Valley lodge about 4 km from the Finca. The chef/owner loves to prepare requested dishes if you give him a day notice, and you can bring your own wine purchases to accompany the meals. There is a small grocery store in the little pueblito about half a km down the dirt road where you can get most of the groceries we needed.

Quite an isolated location but the directions we were given were spot on. A very remote location but there was everything in the house that we needed including WiFi. Lots of basic provisions were provided so it was easy to put a meal together. The owner, John, didn't live nearby but he came to meet us and gave us lots of information to make the most of our trip. It was a great base to explore some of the wineries. We got into the habit of lunching like kings at the wineries and then eating simply at the house in the evening. You definitely need a car and a good map.

We spent a month on Finca Ogawa, helping with the garden, vineyard and orchard. We enjoyed ourselves, we experienced a parilla, Tito and Roxanna, the caretakers were very helpful to us, John and Martha, the managers, made sure we were taken care of and helped us find places to go in the surrounding area. The apartment we had was spacious with many amenities.
we really enjoyed the garden and the orchards and the fresh food and fruit.
