To visit Mendoza and not include a 7 course tasting paired with 7 amazing wines from Bodega Ruca Malen is a more than a mistake. You'll be missing an experience in food preparation and presentation that is and 11 out of 10 and paired with...More

Very nice estate with great views. The lunch they serve is very creative. Every course pairs with a wine. Overall this was the best meal in Mendoza. At 60 dollars a person it was very reasonable for what we got.

Life is about opportunities. Today my wife and I had the opportunity to have lunch and wine tasting at Bodega Ruco Malen. A “mid-size” winery making fantastic wines. The location is just surreal. The mountains in the background is just astonishing. We arrived 20 minutes...More

We had a nice tour here, but you really want to come here for the restaurant and the view. It is a fixed menu, not cheap (2100 AR pp), but it is worth every pesos.
