On the brochure and map that the tourist office gives out the advert clearly says tours in English and Spanish every 30 minutes. Yet, when we arrived, the receptionist told us that they only give an English tour with a reservation. We walked away upset, coming all the way out there, about an hour on the bus from Mendoza.

Boutique/family run places are far more informative and better value than this place where the staff seemed bored

It is probably the most interesting of all the wineries. Lots of memorabilia and equipment saved from over the years. Old trucks and wagons outside. There are no explanation boards but I don't think it needs it. At the end of the main hall is the wine tasting area which is a great place to relax and try some of... More

It was absolutely fascinating! Huge oak casts, antiques wine making machinery. Be sure to take advantage of the tastings here. Excellent wine.

50 pesos to visit and also you can use this amount to buy vine. For me is one of the best. Because you can use your entrance money to buy vine. And the museum is interesting and wonderful. Thank you

The cost of the tour and tasting is 50 pesos, but the entry fee is good towards purchasing a bottle at the end. Unfortunately you have to get through the hour long tour (I am not a big tour person) and low-quality tasting to get this benefit but it's definitely worth it! We purchased wine blindly (as the wine that... More

Great vineyard to start your time in Mendoza at! The tour provides an in-depth history of the Rutini family (one of the best wine makers in Argentina), as well as providing the opportunity to see many pieces of ancient wine making equipment (more interesting than it sounds, haha!) The best part is that the 50 peso entrance fee becomes a... More

Following 4 hectic days of sightseeing in Buenos Aires we travelled to Mendoza to relax and learn a bit more about one of Argentina's famous wine industry. We stayed in Maipú, an ideal location. We arrived at the museum and learned in our woefully inadequate Spanish that we could join a tour but it was in Spanish language only. This... More
