Bit of a difficult one this as I can see how some people would really enjoy Pulenta and others might hate it. The tour was very good and the winery is certainly very impressive - combining elements of wine making with the slick, underground concrete bunkeriness of Dr No's lair in Thunderbolt. In all honesty the place is very impressive... More

We'd had a couple bottles of Pulenta elsewhere in Mendoza we really liked, and decided to tour the winery - which is a treat. Beautiful grounds, knowledgeable guides.

There are not enough positive adjectives to describe the experience at Pulenta. My girlfriend and I agreed that this was the highlight of our two days of tours in Mendoza. Our guide, Connie, was exceptionally knowledgeable and spoke excellent English, French, and Portuguese. I can barely speak English! The wines were delightful and we made several purchases. The estate is... More

Pulenta was our first winery visit in Mendoza, and it didn't disappoint. We generally enjoy wine tastings and tours, and this was no different. Though the place is small (and seems a bit pretentious when you first walk in) our host was down-to-earth and fun. The winery tours in the area were pretty much the same no matter where we... More

We had a nice tour through the factory and a really great tasting: before tasting wine, we blind-tested various smells such as chocolate, cinnamon, coconut, fruit jam, ... Amazing how difficult it is to recognize even well-known smells when you don't see what you smell... After that, we did the wine tasting and suddenly discovered so many more different notes... More

From the wineries we visit, Pulenta had the best tasting experience of all. First of all, you could choose the kind of wine you wanted to taste (or the price you wanted to pay). Then, the guy (Blas, who spoke a almost good Portuguese), took us outside with a glass of white Pinot Gris wine, and we could see the... More

I visited this very important winery with Pablo and Marcos and What a Delight it was? We were introduced to Javier Lo Forte, who is the wine maker and he led a very detailed wine tour for the three of us. The winery started out back in 2002 and has three buildings for fermentation, plus one building for bottling and... More

Wow excellent wine tour, every informative and professional tour. Loved the blind taste test of wine favors. This should be on your top choices for a wine tour when in the area. Excellent wines at a very good price should you want to take a case home with you.

I absolutely loved this bodega. The whole set up was perfect, and our guide, Connie, was knowledgeable and helpful. We loved her! She really answered our questions and was fun. I also loved the smell test. Was very different from other wineries. Highly recommend this place. Thank you Connie for everything! Besitos de California.
