Beautiful landscape, delicious food! Wines are good but not Great! I recommend it. Very good service as well. We didn't know their wines and we liked them. Good prices as well.

This is my 6th trip to Mendoza and I have been to many wineries. In fact, this was my 4th visit to Ruca Malen. The first and second times were incredible, but they have not been as good as in the past. We had an issue with our seating that left us with a bad taste. We reserved a "front... More

We thoroughly enjoyed Ruca Malen. When we showed up we received a quick tour of the wine making facility but what makes Ruca Malen great is the wine paired lunch. We got to try multiple wines we liked the Cabernet and Chardonnay in particular.

We found Ruca Malen to have really great food. One of the best steaks we had our entire trip. Very pricy compared to other vineyards we visited. Did not find the wine living up to all of the hype.

This vineyard does the most enjoyable food with matching wines in a pretty restaurant among the vines. The food was delicious to look at and to eat and the atmosphere charming.

Close enough to Mendoza for a casual visit, but close enough to the Uco for the view. Whie the wines tend towards the structure forward, an unusual treat for this part of the world, the real treat is the lunch. While not always perfect pairings, the food and wine are both very good and professionally served. The menu change to... More

Its expensive, ok! But this wineyard have the most tasty lunch I ever had. With an expetacullar view of the Andes montains, the lunch is well harmonized with the wines served and the timing is perfect. Would return there for sure!

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
