We recently completed a three-night visit to Mendoza with the assistance of Taste of Mendoza. I started by asking the owner, Deepa, for her recommendations since we really didn't know how to begin. She arranged a full day wine tasting tour with stops at 4 excellent wineries, including a gourmet lunch. The choices of wineries were really perfect--we started with sparkling wine at Cruzan, then went to a high-end Malbec vineyard with Materini, and then a fantastic gourmet lunch at LaGarde. Our driver, David, was very informative and his English was excellent.

The second day, Deepa arranged a horseback riding excursion in the Andes for me and my son, while my husband enjoyed a massage at a local spa. Afterwards, we all went to the horseback riding rancher's home for a private asado grill. Superb!

Part of the complication of our booking is that my husband is in a wheelchair, so I had to ask for activities that he could enjoy with us. This involved a level of planning that few travel agents will provide.

Deepa also arranged transfers to and from the airport, and she recommended the hotel. She was originally going to book the hotel for us, but she found a cheaper rate on TripAdvisor and recommended that we book it ourselves since the TripAdvisor rate was much less than she could get through her channels.

All in all, a very luxurious and interesting visit, with every detail arranged perfectly by Deepa.

David was our driver and guide for the day. He spoke wonderful English which was fabulous as our Spanish is pitiful!
David guided us to three completely different vineyards and wineries where all our questions were answered in fulsome detail and we learnt so much about grape growing, harvesting and the complete wine making process. The tastings at the first two were exquisite and at the third, we had lunch overlooking ft he Andes and the wines were matched to each course of food. Spectacular!
I could not recommend David and his company highly enough. It was the highlight of our trip.

We had a wonderful experience in Mendoza with our guide, Gino. Gino is communicative, funny, knowledgeable, and speaks fluent English.

He was able to make our two nature excursions fun for everyone (including parents in their 60s and a 6 year old). He helped us find condors, foxes, guanacos, and the most beautiful scenery in the Mendoza area.

Highly recommend!

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of travelling with David from Lujan De Cuyo to the Uco Valley and it was a wonderful experience. We made stops at Pulenta Estate and Gimenez Riilli (Pulenta has a great operation and excellent tasting, Gimenez is still a bit young but had some tasty food) with our final drop-off being at Casa Antucura. David was professional/on-time, friendly, spoke excellent English and was great to be around! He was so good in fact that we booked him for our return trip to Mendoza City two days later. He made some excellent suggestions for that return trip and was kind enough to make quite a few phone calls/reservations on our behalf (both during our first trip and our second). We have nothing but good things to say and this review is the least we could do for a great human being!

My wifeand I booked our honeymoon in Argentina in early March. Deepa was very thoughtful and knowledgeable on not only wine country, but also the history of Mendoza.

Given our hotel was in Lujan De Cuyo, our wine tour consisted of Benegas Winery, Caelum Winery, Lagarde and finally, Carmelo Patti Winery. Our wine tour also included a divine lunch at Lagarde as well as transportation to/from the hotel.

Both my wife and I were pleasantly surprised at the quality of food and the hospitality we experienced. There is no way we could have planned this wine tour without Taste of Mendoza! Thank you Taste of Mendoza!

My husband and I along with another couple planned a trip to Mendoza in early December with the sole intent to relax and immerse ourselves in the world of Argentinian wines. Deepa worked closely with me to schedule three days of wine tours in the three unique areas in Mendoza: Maipu, Uco Valley, & Lujan De Cuyo. It is important to note that if you think you can arrive in Mendoza and set up wine tours like you are in Napa in my experience that just does not work. Deepa and I discussed our groups experience with Argentinian wines during the planning process - mostly Malbec for our group with a few big labels that we had been exposed to in the United States. We visited 3 to 4 wineries per day each were extensive & included a cellar tour and inside look into the history of the winery and their approach to Argentinian wines. Each day we had a 6 to 8 course lunch with wine pairings at one of the wineries, I must admit I was a little skeptical before I went but was simply blown away by the quality of the food and the hospitality that we experienced at each winery. Attached is our itinerary for each day:

Day 1: Andeluna, Finca Sophenia, La Azul (lunch), Domaine Bosquet -- favorite view Andeluna
Day 2: Archaval Ferrer, Ruca Malen, Lagarde (lunch), Catena Zapata - favorite view Archeval Ferrer
Day 3: Benegas, Trapiche (lunch) & drop back by Lagarde for more wine that we did not purchase on Day 2😋. BEST lunch Trapiche (included pic of that meal - gourmet & whimsical)

The best part is that David picks you up and chauffeurs you to each winery and delivers you back to your hotel. We stayed at Casa Glebinias--- WONDERFUL!!! Separate review on that one.

When we went Mendoza airport was undergoing remodeling so Taste Of Mendoza arranged a pick up and drop off (at San Juan airport) as well & just made the entire trip easier on everyone - no worries if your luggage will fit in the rental car - no getting lost & oh did I mention that Chris (driver from airport) took us to lunch on Day of arrival
In the city of Mendoza to "el Patio Parrilla de Jesus Maria" --- asada was amazing - got to taste every meat that they grilled in house & had our first amazing bottle of Malbec from the world-famous Rutini. Rutini was not open when we toured because of the airport remodel - disappointing but…… We will be back!! Rutini will be 1st on the list!

Thank you David, Deepa, & Chris!

Cost for all 3 days including airport transfers $1400 per couple. If you're going to go - go first class and call Taste Of Mendoza.

Me and my boyfriend had a wonderful experience last week in Mendoza with Gino. We went to the Andes in the first day and to four wineries on the second day. He is very punctual, friendly, polite and has a lot of knowlegde regarding the area. He also speaks great English. He was very patient and took really great (he has done a photography course!) and memorable photos of us. We also really enjoyed the wineries and restaurants he recommended. Everything was perfect. We highly recommend Taste of Mendoza.

We hired a car and driver with Taste of Mendoza and had a great experience with them. We book winery tours and the Aconc tour with them. Deepa always answered our questions in a timely matter even if I contacted her last minute to book a tour for the next morning. The guide were awsome and the cars were recent and clean. Thanks again for an amazing time !

We had a great experience with this private tour! They answered our e-mail really quickly and arranged the schedule flexibly until the last minitue according to our request because our stay in Mendoza was relatively short. They dropped us off at the airport with extra fee. All the wineries they chose were great and we enjoyed the variety of the wineries very much. Our guide was very nice, knowledgeable, and puncture. I recomment this tour to everybody.
