Small old winery

Here you feel the history, learn the methods, and taste great wine. Start your wine excursion here! We felt like we were guest of the estate. Try the olive oil too.

This was one of our most fun winery tours. Our guide was very informative and friendly and provided helpful wine notes during the tasting. The property is lovely and one of the few were we actually walked through a vineyard making for great pictures.

Some of my best pictures came from this place- the lanscape is amazing. And our tour guide was an adorable young girl who trumped many seasoned experts with her wine knowledge!

We visited Kaiken Winery, as well as a number of other wineries in the Mendoza area. We were welcomed by Letitia at Kaiken, who gave us a tour of the vines as well as of the wine making process plant. We were very impressed by Letitia's warmth, knowledge and knowledgable description of the many aspects of wine making. There followed... More

A bit late doing this as we travelled to Mendoza in October, but we had such a great time at Kaiken we had to leave a review. We went as part of a tour organised by Ampora, but I assume you can go independantly. We had tank tasting, a tour of the vinyards, and then a tasting of a selection... More

Of three wineries visited on January 5th, Kaiken was our favourite. Letitia, our guide was charming, interesting and knowlegeable. The three wines we tasted were wonderful. We would recommend this winery to everyone visiting Mendoza Barbara &Michael Wilson U.K.

The winery has a unique history and features, which makes it very charming and different from most wineries in the region. Our guide walked us through the vineyards and disclosed many of the techniques used in the pre-harvesting process, which was extremely interesting. Finally, the Malbec and Chardonnay produced there are of very fine quality, congrats to Umberto and the... More

Kaiken is a small winery with a GREAT wine tour. Starting the tour outside amongst the vines is special. We learned more about cultivating the vines than we ever had at other wine tours throughout our years of traveling. Kaiken has set the bar high and we judge all our wine tours against this Kaiken tour now. We were there... More
