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!

I did absolutely nothing wrong today! I showed up at the Bodega during their normal working hours and there were other tourists visiting the bodega and this Very Rude Girl who has a New York Accent who spoke perfect english told me to wait for about 1 hour and then she comes back to tell me that she can NOT...

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.... More

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

This was a nice quaint stop that I am so glad we made. The wine is great- i wish I could have taken more to go. I am not typically a rose fan but theirs was one of the best I have had. Staff was friendly and tour was interesting and informative without being too long.

Here you feel the history, learn the methods, and taste great wine. Start your wine excursion here! We felt like we were guest of the estate. Try the olive oil too.

This was one of our most fun winery tours. Our guide was very informative and friendly and provided helpful wine notes during the tasting. The property is lovely and one of the few were we actually walked through a vineyard making for great pictures.
