We made a reservation for this bodega (winery) and found that we were in a group of young people on a bicycle adventure. They were all friendly and their guides were great fun. The tour of the vineyard was extremely informative in terms of understanding many of the variables that are taken into consideration when making wine, including a trip... More

This was my best experience in a boutique winery in Mendoza. It is located in the foothills of the Andes. Here I could enjoy a terrific view, tour and a friendly guiding environment (Gaby). Torrontez was the one that I really loved.

We toured the Kaiken winery in November 2014 as part of a small group. The tour included a tour of the facility, tasting a number of wines, including some of their higher line wines, and a special malbec blending experience. The facility is very nice. The wines poured varied from good (83/100) to very good (89/100) in my opinion -... More

I have used tripadvisor for many years and never bothered to write a review, Kaiken had finally made me want to warn others. We booked an appointment to visit the winery months in advance and having planned our time in Mendoza around an afternoon here 2 days before our visit we were sent an email to say they had to...

Too bad it rained during our first Mendoza winery tour! We had to bounce around a bit due to the poor weather but got a good look at the Kaiken facility and then enjoyed tasting an array of Kaiken wines. Unfortuantely, I must admit I like the wines a lot more than the winery!

We toured the bodega in December 2013. The tour guide was great, shared many interesting facts. The tasting was comprehensive -- as it should have been for 250 pesos per person! We enjoyed Kaiken wines throughout our stay in Argentina and it was nice to have visited the vineyard.

This was the first stop in Mendoza during our honeymoon, and it was great. We showed up and were the only people there besides the staff. We got a private tour (from Gabriela, I think?), which was cool -- especially since it's one of the smaller and older vineyards with cement tanks. Then we tasted -- the wines were delicious....

We had the most delightful experience at this small, but invitingly warm winery. Our tour began in the vineyards with an explanation of techniques and illustration of vine growth that even the most knowledgeable wine-lover would appreciate. Leticia was a professional, friendly and knowledgeable guide as we toured the charming facility. We then entered the tasting room beautifully set up... More

Probably the most memorable tour we did in the Lujan/Maipu area, and definitely one of the most beautifully sited wineries - the tasting area in particular is on a thatched decking area with great views of the vines and the mountains. I think most people come as part of a tour with one of the companies in Mendoza but we... More
