Our group of 6 stopped at Bodega Melipal for a wine pairing lunch in March. The winery is in a beautiful setting with elaborate grounds and stunning architecture. The kitchen and dining areas are very accommodating and comfortable. Our 5 course lunch was nicely paired with wines from the vineyard. Both the food and wine were very good and complimented...

Beautiful setting, great service and beautifully prepared food presented as it should be and in the portion sizes that should be served in a wine pairing lunch. We found every course to be perfect, tasty, properly presented and paired with a proper (and very good) wine. We loved everything about the visit, enjoyed two wonderful hours and left very full...

We have eaten here many times over the past 8 years and taken many guests as well. It is always one of the best winery lunch experiences. The pours are generous and they pour some of their best wines to boot. Of course the food is wonderful as well as the service. Ask for an outside table if the weather... More

Short tour but thorough. Lunch was not the 5 stars some other's gave. Not used to small portions although the wine pairings were right on. 65 dollars US.

The views from the restaurant are pretty spectacular looking across over this vineyard. The restaurant itself is also very nice but the food did not live up to expectation. It had more concern with appearance than taste. The wine pairing was good but not overly generous. Service basic.

Melipal is one of many bodega restaurants. Unfortunately they all try to do the same thing. But the food was good the staff nice and friendly. The place is well kept and has a beautiful garden at the entrance to the restaurant. It is worth a visit.

If you're going to tour the bodegas in Mendoza, don't miss Melipal. The guide was knowledgable and answered a lot of our questions. The tour ended in a very cool looking tasting room with a set of delicious wines. Recommended !

The professionalism and cordial hospitality were among the best experiences I have ever encountered. The staff really takes great pride in their entire operation, including their immaculate vineyards. As a professionally trained (UC Davis) enologist, international wines judge, and chef, I would rate the entire wines offering as well over 90+ points, without hesitation. Something for just about everyone's wine... More

Great one on one tour by wine guide who enjoyed his job. He was funny, and taught me how to taste like an expert. Unfortunately, had lunch planned elsewhere.
