We didn't book, we didn't get on their website, we didn't search their facebook, nor tweet (not that I do any of the last 2 anymore). We had a bottle of Luigi Bosca in Mendoza the night before, loved it. The next morning we took a taxi to the winery and just turned up. Yes, they charge. Everything nice comes at a cost. But what a treat it was. AND if you are lucky enough as we were to have Gaston Rey on the other side of the bar, you are in for a special treat. What was supposed to be a normal wine tasting turned out to be a most enjoyable day tasting different wines, and being guided by an expert. Loved it. This is what I call a warm welcome, hospitality. Muchos gracias. By the way, I kept thinking about how much we missed not knowing Spanish. A hurdle we must overcome before we return next year.

We had a booking at this winery to do a wine tasting only. We are familiar with their wines and we are fans of their wines. We made it very clear that we were not interested in the wine tour, just tasting what we wanted to focus on which were Malbecs and Cabernets. When we arrived at the agreed time they wanted us to wait for the tour that was doing the wine tour, said that they were not available to do the tasting in English even though the tasting guy spoke English and we said we were from Australia. I speak Spanish but my husband doesn’t so it would have been nice to see some manners and flexibility for their part. There were a few Luigi Bosca employees behind a counter but showed no interest in us. The group that had been doing the tour then arrived at the tasting area and they wanted us to sit through a memorised speech on a variety of wines which we were NOT interested in, such as Spumante (bubbly wine), a Sauvignon Blanc (we are used to NZ Sauv Blancs so we were again, I repeat! NOT interested). We were also not interested in tasting their Finca La Linda range which is their entry level. We were willing to pay for the tasting experience but wanted to be able to have some choice in what to taste as you would in any proper wine tasting place. We were clearly unhappy, this was our first winery visit on the day. So we called one of their employees and complained, of course they wouldn’t approach us to see what was wrong, we had to call them and make it clear to them. And they brought some some sort of wine menu which had wine flights but it was going to cost like US$70 to do a Malbec flight tasting. So ridiculous, we felt unwelcome and that they had no interest in showcasing the wines we know and love. Thei staff running the wine tasting showed an arrogant and amateur attitude, so we ended up leaving without tasting any of their wines. This is a real pity because I have been a fan of Luigi Bosca for over 20 years now and I always buy a few bottles of their wine when I visit family in Buenos Aires. This time we decided not to buy any Luigi Bosca before coming back from Argentina to Australia. I have read some reviews of this winery and it seems that some people have also picked up on their lack of interest in patrons and lack of flexibility in catering for an international crowd that would be more than willing to spend their money on their quality wines. Their loss!

My wife and I travel around the world enjoying the wine experiences that the country ( both old and new world ) we visit offers In this case we had a limited time in Mendoza and out of the 900 or so wineries that are available we choose this winery ( and 2 others ) We chose this winery because we knew and loved their wine , we really wanted to visit it and we hoped by visiting the winery we would get a greater appreciation of the wines and the passion behind them , instead we got the opposite. We had arranged a driver for the day and had booked for a wine experience. We were expected at the gate . However when we went inside: - the service was nonexistent. we waited and waited , essentially we were ignored and finally when we received ‘service’ the attitude was appalling and options available were not explained .The person presenting spoke English and said he would give some explanation but when it came to the event it never happened. - when we were eventually given wines to taste we were only provided bottom entry wines We later leant there were other limited options but by then it was all too late We walked out This experience was probably one of the worse experiences I have had at a winery. May be I was unlucky but If you are visiting Mendoza and looking for a winery my recommendation is to avoid this winery. There are other wineries who actually want and cater for international visitors
