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

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
