“Well Organized and Fun Wine Tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

The Ampora Wine Tour is a great experience and exposure to some of the best wineries in Medoza. The best parts about the tour are:
- Small group so you're able to ask several questions to the knowledgeable tour guide and you get a great history of wine making in Argentina
- Choice of wineries that only allow small tours and you get to meet some of the owners
- Amazing lunch! One of the best lunches I had in Mendoza
- Ease of tour - pick up and drop off process was perfect
- We were allowed plenty of time to hang out at the winery, take pictures, purchase wine etc.

Thanks Orlena for a fun, yummy (wine and lunch), and informative day!

“I can't imagine our trip without Ampora!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

The guides on Ampora's tours are beyond belief. They are so knowledgeable, so friendly, so accommodating -- you'll be blown away. Plus, the wineries that Ampora selects have a perfect combination of delicious wine and wonderful staff. We did the Past to Present deluxe tour, plus a deluxe tour of the Luyan de Cuyo Valley. It was expensive, but I would say it was definitely worth it.

“what a great day!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

we took our tour in july 2011 and i'm just writing reviews now. this was a great way to experience different bodegas and different styles of wine making. we also saw a nice mix of large and small wineries and then ended with a fabulous meal and...MORE WINE!!! highlights included the tank tasting and and the story of the vineyard with the award wining grapes with that interesting grape disease that was in remission (keikan).

“2012 Christmas Wine Tour - A MUST!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

My experience with Ampora Wine Tours from the beginning was excellent. I booked a last minute trip to Mendoza. I stumbled upon Ampora Wine Tours on the Internet and decided to take a chance. It was one of the best decisions I made! The service from the beginning was excellent. From Francisca and Mercedes in the office helping with all the hotel arrangements and even providing answers on church scedules for Christmas. Not part of their job, but they went out of the way to help. The Sunday Wine Club event was excellent as well as our Wine Tour. The Wine Club event was in Kai house and he was a most gracious host. Majo did an excellent job selecting the wines we would taste and was very knowledgeable in describing them and what to expect with the wines. For a newcomer to wine tasting, this was appreciated. Just when you thought you could not drink enough wine, we then went on our wine tour the next day. Visited 3 different wineries, 18 different wines and finished with an absolultely wonderful lunch on the golf course. The wines we tasted were a wide variety - not just Malbec - and the quality was outstanding. Ramiro was and excellent host for the day and we could not have done any of this without Oscar our driver as well. It was also delightful to have Mercedes, Majo and Kai join us for lunch. To top things off, Majo even sang some Jazz for us. If you want a friendly welcoming wine tour that does things very professionally and brings you to wineries that all the others do not go to - then Ampora is who you want. Ampora treats you like family - Thanks again Ampora for a wonderful Christmas.
