In terms of location, this is a lovely spot to break from biking around the Maipu wineries. We stopped for lunch and were served a huge and delicious glass of vino, however, the food wasn't up to the same standard. A wilted and unimpressive salad - just a few token bits of tomato and cabbage and some very sad looking... More

This is a nice family bodega that started 140 years ago, a pioneer of viticulture in Mendoza, who had discovered the benefits of Farm Products, maipucino and built a unique place in a warehouse which they still use today. Furthermore, the Di Tommaso family restores and applies its experience of many generations from over one century all the way back... More

25 pesos for a tasting and tour is a fair price. However, we were advised by our place of accommodation that the winery offered tours in English and Spanish. Being English speakers with minimal Spanish, we chose this as one of our target wineries. When we arrived, we greeted the female employee who met us at the door in Spanish... More

I hate that wineries deny tours or tastings to solo travelers. I showed up 30 minutes before closing time and they denied me even a tasting. I heard nothing but good things about their wine and was really disappointed that they didn't serve me.

We arrived by bike, had nice lunch and started our tour. It seems that people of Mendoza always need to get used to tourists but if they get to know you they relax. In the beginning we told the girl we didn't speak Spanish and she told the whole group in spanish (as a joke) why do you come to... More

Greeted at the entrance to cellar being told it is 20 pesos for a tasting wasn't a great first impression! Felt like "pay up before I let you in." Interesting wandering around the vineyard, and would have enjoyed a tour of the winery, but it was not offered on the day. Nice dessert wine ... Not too cloying with interesting... More

We had a very nice lunch and our daughter loved playing in the vineyard. There aren't too many wineries where they encourage you to wander out an eat the fruit! The best dessert option was the quintessential Argentinian combination of Mate, a bowl of fresh dolce de leche with a pile of toasted bread. So good, we ate it first!... More

Great wine and good service. One of the best larger wineries we visited. The staff member who took the wine tasting was friendly and very informative. Nice setting.

This is the oldest bodega in the area and has a very interesting history. The tour guide was superb and very informed. The tour was reasonably priced and included four wines to try. We were on a wine and bike tour (Mr Hugo) and so we couldn't carry too much but couldn't resist a bottle of the Cabernet Sauvingon. We... More

Some Of the staff here are great, others are curt and unfriendly (generally the younger stuff were great, the older women were somewhat mean). However, the whole experience was good ad the wines were delicious and, very rare for an Argentine vineyard, one is encourages to go for a walk in the vineyard an among the olive groves. Very pleasant.... More
