My friend and I just spent an amaaaaazing four days with the gorgeous Kendra at Uncorking Argentina and she showed us all the best bits of Mendoza and more. We had no idea about the world of wine but we left with a whole new appreciation and understanding, as well as an insight as to why everyone here is so passionate about it. The passion is infectious, we tasted so many wines and met so many informative and wonderful people that our heads were spinning, and not just because of the alcohol... well ok maybe a little bit!

Being with the girls from Uncorking Argentina is like hanging out with friends who just love to teach you about the wines and the places they love - every moment was great fun and we had such a laugh... So much so that it never felt like a tour... more like a fun day trip in the car to cool places! On one day we went horse riding with the gauchos and has a meaty asado (plus more wine) afterwards in their little house in the middle of the mountains. That was definitely a highlight!

We also toured several wineries and even went for dinners at some fabulous restaurants in and out of town. Ask Kendra and Caroline anything and they will do their best to make it happen... and Filipe was a fab guide who did everything with a smile and went out of his way to help, even when I got sick one day - he went to the pharmacy to get me some medicine which was so sweet!

I really cannot fault this company and wish them all the very best for the future... they are definitely doing everything right when it comes to showing people the best of all magical Mendoza has to offer! Highly recommended! A trip to Mendoza without Uncorking Argentina just would not have been the same.

We spent two days touring wine country and then emarked on two day in the Andes. Our guide Felipe was top shelf; the wineries were tailored to four people with significant wine knowledge (one a seventh generation wine maker), the adventures both surprising and enjoyable. Our horseback riding in the mountains was something out of any good western movie. If you want to avoid the details of planning go with these guys

We did a full day private tour in August to finish off our weekend at the Rugby. We decided on a private tour as we were a group of 4 adults and 4 children. We wanted more flexibility with the kids and kids can be loud so thought it better to stay away from the adults only type tours. It was a great decision. We told the tour company what we wanted and they delivered. They planned 3 wineries to visit and picked us up from our hotel in a mini bus. Our guide spoke english and was very friendfly. What we really liked about the tours is that they took us to 3 very different wineries and they all offered something different. At our last winery we had a fabulous argentinian bbq with wine while the kids ran around.... it was a gorgeous setting. Sitting outside in the vineyards eating with the owners of this botique winery.... Very special. It really was stress free and everyone we met on the day were friendly and welcoming.

We visited Mendoza for the first time using Uncorking Argentina as our tour guide. I was a little nervous at first - setting up the whole tour over email. But when we got there, everything was perfect. The recommended B&B was warm and welcoming, the driver was knowledgeable and so friendly. We traveled with our one-year old son. Uncorking Argentina had a car seat for him and made sure the B&B had a crib... and even arranged for a wonderful babysitter to watch him while we attended an amazing cooking class. The wine tours were perfectly set up so we didn't hear the same "speil" each time. The topics covered wine making, wine labeling/distribution, the vines, the water supply... you name it. We learned (and tasted) a lot. My in-laws are STILL talking about how wonderful the trip was!

Prior to arriving in Argentina, I have to admit I was neutral regarding our upcoming trip to Argentina and the Mendoza region. We had been so busy back home that I never had time to anticipate the trip or do much research. Now, thanks to Uncorking Argentina, I have a totally different perspective and rate this trip as one of our best experiences. We were with a group of 5 others (total 7 people) and having the wine tastings, restaurant reservations and transportation arrangements already made allowed us to completely focus on the experience and the region without getting stuck on logistical details. Having details so well planned made it simple and easy for our group to move from place to place. Our hotel (Villagio) was very clean and had wonderful and friendly staff, Mendoza food was totally yummy and I would happily drown in the wine. The drivers were so warm and friendly, the winery and vineyard staff so passionate and everyone we came into contact with kind and helpful. I would definitely use Uncorking Argentina again for our next trip to Mendoza and highly recommend them for anyone seeking a relaxing but interesting experience. My husband and I travel a lot and this was one of most memorable experiences. Thank you Uncorking Argentina! Angela Smith
