What first hits you is, of course, these Andes Mountains, which preside over the entire community. Really breathtaking! The outdoor lunch here was exquisite and so serene. Five light courses each paired with a different wine made here at this vineyard. The only downside is that you cannot actually see any wine being made. We would still recommend.

Lovely winery, great scenery, absolutely excellent lunch. Well worth it. We went to 3 wineries that day and ended there. I think other wineries had more interesting tours, but definitely go for lunch.

Not only was the wine at Ruca Malen some of the best in the region, but the wine pairing lunch was exquisite. They have a gorgeous set up with the tables facing the Andes mountains. Each delicious course had the appropriate pairing for white, then red. I was a little apprehensive to book this as my husband cannot eat butter... More

The visit to the cellar is ok but the restaurant is a must go. We took the five steps menú and it was really great.

Don't miss that visit! We went there as a part of the winery tour recommended by Cavas Wine Lodge, and we had lunch with wine pairing with a fantastic view on the Andes. The food was out of this world, easily in our top 5 best meals ever. When I think about it, I still can't believe how cheap it... More

We did the tour and then had lunch at the restaurant there with a table overlooking their vineyards and the Andes. Amazing does not begin to describe this six course meal with wine, wine and more delicious wine. The service was superb and the dishes were so flavorful and presented as works of art. Highly recommend this bodega.

Our guide told us this was named "best winery restaurant in the world." Whether that is a real accolade or not, the place lives up to the myth! One of the most thoughtful menus and pairings I've seen, with each course relating to a phase of wine production. I ate one course with my eyes closed so that nothing could... More

This experience was unforgettable! All details were taken care of by the restaurant and so we had the most incredible food and wine pairing experience, everything with an astonishing view of the mountains in front of our window.

Impeccable service, dishes which are closer to a work of art, nice wines and the best atmosphere. It's quite rare to be acquainted with such an experience. Run there, run before it's over.
