“simple, rustic style lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

we had a lunch sitting in the sun. Nice rustic, straightforward farm food. Good but nothing special. Accompanied by a tasting of the Azul wines.

“What a great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

A wonderful friendly restaurant just next to the Salentein bodega. I would recommend everyone to visit this fantastic place. Although it was really busy they made us a table as soon as they could. We had great wine from the bodega and a very tasteful steake you could eat without a steak-knife.

Be kind for your taste, your friends and your purse and lunch here instead of at a big fancy winery.

4 steaks, a bottle of wine, 2 sodas and a dessert is about 400 ARG PESOS and way more worth it.

“Great Food & Wine Ala-Natural!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We were recommended to this small family run winery come restaurant by a local. As we drove in we were wondered whether we were in the right place, but then Pablo came out to welcome us, and spoke great English. We asked about wine tasting and he said yes, yes, no problem, just sit under the trees (in a lovely little area) and I'll bring you the wines. so he runs away and comes back with wines, water, glasses and bubbling enthusiasm. It was a great start, so we decided we had to stay for lunch, which is also in an outdoor setting with great views of the Andes. Lunch was excellent ... it's a 5 course affair, beginning with hot homebaked bread rolls, then an antipasto plate to share (excellent salami, exceptional sundried tomatoes, olives, pruscuitto etc), then we had a corn dish ... I can't say what it was exactly but it was good, followed by a meat empanada (yummy), then we could choose from a fewdifferent main courses, and we chose a steak. They use a wood-fired oven, so the flavour of the meat was exceptional, but a little tough none-the-less. Even thought the steak didn't melt in the mouth, the meal overall was excellent. Dessert was a Peach Pie which was also really good. This restaurant is a family affair, and they make everything themselves, plus it's the only winery in the Uco Valley owned by Argentineans. There are big flash wineries, with interesting architecture everywhere, and we had lunch at one of these places the day before (also excellent - Septima in Lujan de Cuyo), but for an intimate Argentinean experience, you couldn't go past this place ... absolutely fantastic and friendly, with a unique atmosphere! We paid 50 peso per person for wine tasting beforehand, but you could do this with your lunch, as some others did. The 5 course lunch was a set price of 180 pesos each, and their wine was a steal at 40 pesos for a really nice cabernet sauvignon. Support this small family run winery and experience the unique difference ... perfect!

“An special wine tasting experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

How about wine tasting outside on comfy sofas with the backdrop of the Andes? Absolutely perfect...we kept pinching ourselves. This family owned winery is boutique and completely unpretentous...unique as it is surrounded by the "big guys". We met the owner and his son...just delightful. We wished we could stay for lunch but were off to our next winery!

“Boutique bodega with personal touch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

This bodega is different from the huge wineries that export all over the world. The tasting was outside on a terrace with views of the mountains in the background. The staff was very nice, easy going and involved in the wine making business. Would highly suggest going here if you want to get away from the big commercial tours.
They also serve lunch (230 pesos including wines), home made food!
