We just had an amazing afternoon with Ricardo, the proprietor (speaks amazing English), who has taken over running the family winery after his late father started it more than 15 years ago. Wine was some of the best we've tried in Argentina, and he sat with us through more than 7 samples and told us about each process. As part... More

Our experience at Dolium turned into a 2.5 hour course on wine tasting with the winemaker. Ricardo graciously walked us through the ins and outs of proper wine tasting, really opening our minds as well as our taste buds. He had us compare vintages (2001 vs 2010 Cab), grapes (2010 Cab vs 2010 Syrah vs 2012 Tempranillo), and terroir (2005... More

Coming from California wine country, we were interested in what the Mendoza wine country would have to offer. We were very fortunate to stop at Dolium and have the owner, Ricardo, give us a very detailed study of wine tasting in addition to sampling his wines, one against another of interest with each flight. We learned much more about wine... More

The owner Ricardo took us through a technical wine tasting that was phenomenal. It was interesting, challenging and overall a wonderful experience. We tasted a range of different wines, and broadened our knowledge. I would highly recommend wine tasting at Dolium. Different to any other, much more in depth and Ricardo was an incredible guide.

My wife and I recently traveled to Argentina and visited 3 wineries in Mendoza. We live in CA, very close to Napa and Sonoma so we were quite curious about the contrast with Mendoza. We went to 2 large wineries that were very beautiful with great Malbecs and other wines but we chose Dolium primarily because they offered a lunch... More

This winery is very pretty and serves a great lunch (which is best to arrange in advance). The winemaking facilities are literally under the vineyard and available for guided tours. The wines are good, with a number of excellent Torrontés, Malbecs and Malbec rosé wines. Also, a very tasty and unique Tempranillo. What makes it stand out is Ricardo, the... More

We had an incredibly delicious lunch at Dolium. I emailed Bodega Dolium and Ricardo quickly responded with a time we could visit that same day! Ricardo was helpful with directions as well as accommodating with our rather late arrival. Once we got there, we met Ricardo and Aymeric and began our tour of the winery. Aymeric not only explained Dolium's... More

Not going to allow this place to waste any more of my time by going into great depth about how vile an experience we had at Dolium. Just don't go!

Dear Mr King of Spain, your unspecific and generic negative review won't help me improve our service to visitors, which by the way seems to be appreciated in an absolutely opposite way by all the rest of our visitors. Usually I'm present in part of the visits and never saw (or my staff has reported or my visit book reads... More
