Know More about this tour

Wine is one of Argentinas most sought-after products, and you can go straight to the heart of its wine country on this half-day wine tasting tour. Youll travel approximately 60 miles (100km) from the city of Mendoza into the regions of Lujan de Cuyo and Maipu. Within the foothills of the Andes, the Uco Valley provides the highest altitudes at which wines are produced in the province of Mendoza.

During the tour, youll learn how this dry area became a wine-growing oasis with irrigation techniques that capture the snow melt runoff from the Andes Mountains. Originally created by the indigenous Huarpes people, this system is now run by computerized drip irrigation, which allows Argentina to be one of the top wine-producing countries in the world.

You'll visit two wineries and enjoy a wine tasting session, during which you'll become familiar with the local wines. Your English- and Spanish-speaking guide will explain the technique of wine tasting, wine production, the importance of the cork in the bottle and the correct way to handle a glass. A relaxing day in Mendoza wine country is an unforgettable experience for your senses.

Many of the wineries in the region are not open daily or have varying schedules. Depending on the day, the wineries visited will be different. The following are the potential wineries visited on this tour.

Maipu: La Rural, Tempus Alba, Carina, Vina el Cerno, Lopez, Reyter, Tapaus, Navarro Correas, Benegas
