The owners showed us around and gave us a really informative talk. His English was superb and even though we have visited many wineries around the world we still learnt more. Also the wines were superb, all we need now is for them to get a UK agent so that we can enjoy them at home!!

Caelum was part of our wine tour in Mendoza. We went to Catena which was nice, but I have to say that I liked Caelum much better. It's small, but the tasting was fantastic. The staff took their time explaining all the different wines and grapes. The tasting groups were small and they delivered my wine to my hotel in... More

Excellent wines and people over at Caelum. I strongly recommend you insist Hernán (one of the owners) to perform a Luis Miguel song. If you get lucky and he agrees to it, you'll agree with me that he is one of the best troubadors in Argentina!

This is my third visit to BODEGA CAELUM WINERY, each year I come by I get delighted and impresssed by the quality of the wines, the captivating wooden and stone architecture and the warmheartedness of the Pimentel family. I personally know the familiy for 20 years, I have been best of friends with Hernan (in charge of operations) and know... More

A rather shambolic visit which could have been interesting but was spoiled because the winery - intimate and small - tried to accommodate 10 people. Six loud Americans dominated the small space available (taking over the tasting table and excluding those not from their party). A conversation between three of them about Chile and Peru (relevance unclear) made it impossible... More

A small, family-owned winery with a stellar line-up of innovative wines-- the passito method Torrontes dessert wine is a gem. This was our favorite winery visit in Mendoza.

Small, family-run, very friendly winery. The views are lovely and the wines are white, many unoaked. Caelum makes a nice counterpoint destination to the many Malbec-based wineries in the region. They are light and refreshing, one in particular was a dead ringer for a nice petit Chablis. Don't forget to take home some of their homegrown pistachios.

After tasting tours of larger wineries in Chile and Argentina (Santa Rita, Norton, etc), visiting Bodega Caelum was a wonderful gem! This was not the industrialized, big winery visited by loads of tour bus tourists. Bodega Caelum is a small, exceptional winery in a gorgeous country setting with even tastier wines (in my opinion) than the bigger, well-known labels. This... More

This was one of several wineries we visited in Mendoza, and we loved it. It is more of a small boutique winery, but all of the wines we tasted were excellent--especially the Reserve Malbec. The tour was fun and the staff was very friendly. Visit here!

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Caelum. It was the smallest, most intimate winery on our itinerary but by far the most memorable. This was principally because we were given an extensive tour by a member of the family who owned the vineyards, whose passion for the business and wines was exceptional. The wines tasted great too....so don't hesitate to... More
