Just returned home from week in Mendoza during which time we had hired Uncorking Argentina to get us around. As we had set up our own itinerary, we were simply using them as drivers to get us from one winery to another. While that was done with perfection, we all agreed the drivers made the trip so much better as... More

We had a nice time and Molly was very helpful and easy to work with. Keep in mind that you are not allowed to pay in local currency, so this ends up being quite a bit more expensive than other tours in the area if you are savvy with your currency exchange rates.

The high inflation rate in Argentina affects our service providers at every level - from the... More

Uncorking put together a very nice day trip to tour 3 very different wineries close to Mendoza. We are able to tour Alta Vista a french owned winery, Achaval Ferrer a winery with and Italian flavor and Lagarde a traditional winery where we had a great lunch. Our guide was great and very helpful.

The itineraries that Molly set up for us were great. The driver was super nice and on time. It is well worth the cost / investment to use Uncorked Argentina. They know what they are doing!
