Very attractive winery and the lunch they serve is outstanding. Unfortunately, I did not think the wines measured up to other malbecs we tried in the region. Overall, very good experience for lunch but even if you wanted to buy wines the shipping costs are prohibitive.

This small winery in Mendoza is elegant in design. As you drive up surrounded by grapevines you become aware of the modern building outlined by water and the mountains beyond. The cool tile and glass doors invite you in to enjoy the view from 3 sides. Wine tour in english by very knowledgable staff lasted 30 mins. Lunch with wine... More

Beautiful restaurant with great views of the Andes. Food well prepared and presented. Paired with vineyard wines. The malbecs are wonderful. Some of the foods did not go well with wines and the pairings especially around salads were a bit odd. Of course, the traditional beef went well with an excellent malbec.

Boy, did I walk out of this place a happy man! First, we toured the winery. Then, tasted the wine. Medoza Malbec indeed!! Then, sat down for an elaborate vegetarian tasting lunch! Followed by desert. And a long walk around the fields. All this with the Aconcagua in the backdrop, sun in the sky, and happiness in the hearts. Service... More

After our wine tour, we began our 5 course meal. With each course we had a glass of one of their wines. Our entrée was steak an superbly cooked. The wine pairings were fantastic with a late harvest Malbec with dessert - a wonderful wine! Everything was well done, service, ambiance, food and wine!

My friend and I started a wine tour with a five course lunch at this winery. Each course was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. I loved every wine I tasted and bought three of the wines to take home with me. It is pricey but truly a culinary treasure.

The food and wine pairing were simply the best experience we had in Mendoza. Tender juicy assado. In fact all courses of this superb meal were tasty! The Winery tour guide is very knowlegeable and you learn a lot! He' s also great fun! What surprised me most, however, was their desert wine. It's not too sweet, just right, just... More
