Excellent gourmet lunch paired with wines, at Ruca Malen, which is in a beautiful setting. Make sure you book a table outside (unfortunately we had not), as it is much nicer, if weather permits. No winery tour.

Ruca Malen is a beautiful building, tasting, and winery tour. Friendly, knowledgeable guides. Great cabs and delicious lunch with an amazing view. I love this place.

Our tour company suggested this winery as a good lunch stop. We did not have a formal wine tasting, but each course of the meal was paired with a different wine. The main course (of five, including two deserts) was paired with two wines. Unusual for Argentina, the courses were small. We were fearful of yet another multi-course gastronomic marathon... More

I am a North American tourist in Mendoza looking for a Bodega that serves a lunch. According to Trip Advisor Ruca Malin is highly rated. Upon going to the RM Website I see nothing of a lunch, only food served during sampling. There are other issues that make the search for info difficult. The print on the website is small... More

The view had me sold, the lunch was first rate and then the reserve Malbec jumped out of my glass and knocked me out. This place makes serious wine, they have some sweeter stuff at the beginning of the flight, it's decent but nothing like the big wines at the end of lunch. The tour was fun as well, I... More

This winery offers a tour & lunch with wine pairing that is a must-do experience! Their wines are well-priced and are of good quality. The lunch was outstanding! The wine pairings were very good, except for the pairing with the dessert. If anyone wants a great winery experience while in Mendoza, I would strongly recommend going to this winery!

I may be biased as Ruca Malen wines have been on my list of favourites for a year now, but our 5 course lunch with wine pairing was absolutely perfect and decadent. As one of the more expensive lunch pairings in the area, this one does not disappoint. Staff was attentive, wine was beautiful, and the food was sublime. Definitely... More

Very attractive location. Bodega serves a gourmet five course lunch with wines to accompany each course. The tenderloin was very good. The service was very friendly. In the end I found wines I liked better elsewhere, but that does not take away from a wonderful experience and several in our party thought the wines were outstanding. Don't miss this experience!

The 5 Course lunch is very artistically presented, quite innovative in mixing out flavors and ingredients, and is served with generous pouring of locally produced wines paired with each course. A real treat. The tenderloin was out of this world. We were told that this restaurant received the award of being the best winery restaurant in the World in 2013.... More
