    El vino es una expresión más de estas tierras que debes sentir en tu paladar junto a la belleza de sus montañas. Corazón del sol me llegó al corazón con un grenasch

    My wife and I really enjoyed the tour with our guide Andrea! We were picked up from our hotel in Chacras at 8:30 AM and taken to three wineries: Corazon Del Sol, Piedra Negra, and Dominique Basquet. The first two were private tastings! The third was the lunch with wine pairings as well. Andrea was intelligent on the wine making process, warm to the clients, a perfect English communicator, and she curated a great experience! We made it back to the hotel after 5pm so plan the day accordingly.

    É TUDO muito bem planejado e pensado para a melhor experiência que você vai ter! Fomos num carro super confortável para uma viagem longa do centro de Mendoza até às vinícolas (cerca de 1 hora e meia), mas que passou rápido pois o motorista Gastón e a guia Carla foram conversando conosco o tempo todo. As vinícolas escolhidas foram surpreendentes, os guias Francisco e Regina são excepcionais e nos ensinaram muito sobre toda a história do vinho em Mendoza! O almoço é um show a parte, alta gastronomia com uma vista de tirar o fôlego, difícil não se emocionar! Faria o passeio todos os dias se pudesse! Fico feliz em ter escolhido viver essa experiência!

    Vinícolas extraordinárias de tirar o fôlego, experiência incrível, valeu cada segundo. Mas o que mais me impressionou foi o atendimento atencioso e profissional do início ao fim, fica aqui minha gratidão a toda a equipe envolvida, motorista, guia e organizadora. Obrigada por proporcionarem algo tão maravilhoso e terem ido além para nos ajudar. Indo embora de Mendoza encantada não apenas com o lugar, mas com as pessoas extremamente simpáticas, generosas e solícitas.

    Driver Guillermo and sommelier Carla picked us up from our Mendoza hotel and during the drive to the Uco Valley it became apparent that we were in for an absolute treat. The two of them were extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the local wine industry but it was genuinely pleasant to talk to them about all kinds of things. Their English isn't perfect (although to be fair, better than my Spanish), but that didn't stop us from having interesting and fun conversations throughout the day. Our first stop on the tour was Bodega Piedra Negra, where we were welcomed with our first glass of wine for the day and an opportunity to take in the stunning panorama of the surrounding vines and the Andes. Meanwhile our Piedra Negra guide Regina gave us an overview of the winery's history. Afterwards she showed us the productions facilites and the cellar. Finally, we got to taste three different wines, 1 white and 2 red, one of which in 2 vintages. Since we are far from being wine experts, we were very grateful that Regina guided us through the process, providing an insightful introduction to each of them, which meant we never felt out of our depth. After buying a couple of bottles we moved on to the next winery, which happened to be just next door: Bodega Gimenez Riili. Our guide there, Veronica, gave us a quick tour of the premises and switched between Spanish and English with ease, since we were joined by an Argentinian family. We got to taste some unfinished wines straight from the casks and then sat in the gorgeous restaurant area by the fireplace to try another 4 of their wines, accompanied by a scrumptious cheese board. Our last stop was another 20 minute drive away at restaurant Rincón Atamisque. We got to pick from several options to build a 4 course meal, with each course being paired with a glass of wine. The food was absolutely delicious and we enjoyed the wines too, although we have to admit that we were more than a bit tipsy by this point. Finally, Guillermo and Carla made sure we safely got back to our hotel and we shared another couple of good laughs on the way. For our next trip to Mendoza, we'll definitely make sure to choose them as our guides again. The whole tour had an authentic, local flair to it. It seemed like the wineries were chosen for us not because they are trendy but because they are genuinely worth a visit. We couldn't have wished for a better day!

    We had a fabulous time and the wineries and the lunches we had were above exceptional. I can not speak highly enough about Alex Crux and the gourmet lunch we had there, Everyone should put that on their must do list! Van was perfect and our driver Guillermo was a delight! We had a perfect two days of wineries in the Uco Valley!
