This is a small family-owned and run winery with a small but delicious production. You are not likely to find these wines outside of Argentina, and the wines are delicious. The two of us arrived 30 minutes early for our tasting appointment, and because another group was there the owner/manager invited us to sit at a shaded table and brought us a bottle of rose to enjoy while we waited. It was perfect on a warm day, and was one of the several bottles we bought.

The whole tasting experience was relaxing and unhurried and enjoyable. I recommend it.

We had a wonderful experience at Bodega Caelum. It is a small, family run winery that also grows pistachios. They knew that we spoke English and mostly preferred whites, and they adjusted the tasting to our preferences. The wine (whites and reds) was all fantastic. The pistachios also were absolutely incredible. We really enjoyed our tasting, and would absolutely recommend!

The vineyard only produced c.3000 bottle per year - in total - half of which are for export, so if you want a truly unique, boutique experience of fantastic wines - this is your place. It's a small operation, so don't expect a lot of luxury - just simply delicious, batch produced wines. You'll walk away scratching your head as to how to find this wine at home! It's almost painful to taste something so delicious and walk away knowing that it's likely the last time you'll try it. A must see, for the wines and the small little nesting owls on site!

This is my third visit to BODEGA CAELUM WINERY, each year I come by I get delighted and impresssed by the quality of the wines, the captivating wooden and stone architecture and the warmheartedness of the Pimentel family. I personally know the familiy for 20 years, I have been best of friends with Hernan (in charge of operations) and know Contanza (Somellier) and Mercedes (Agronomist/Production), and can assure an incredible human quality and fond professionalism in all the members of the family involved.

What makes CAELUM special ? Firstly, there is a Pistacchio plantation within the estate, operated by the family which blends superbly with the wine tasting experience. Secondly, they produce very interesting and unique dessert wines created by the Appassimento Method (the only torrontés appassito in the world). Thirdly, they offer fondly produced and honest first barrel amazing Malbec & Cabernet S. Reserve wines.

To finish, the visit to CAELUM offers beatiful views of the Andes and a very comfortable and concise experience of hands on winemaking with the personal touch of family-owned reception.

We enjoyed very much our wine tasting at Boutique Bodega Caelum. Knowable, friendly and personal presentation. My favorite wine Caelum Rosado. We congratulate the family for deciding in taking the chance to make their own wines. Do not miss this place, well worth the visit.

Be sure to purchase a bag of their homegrown pistachios to take home. We divided them in smaller bags and vacuumed them in a Food Saver.

Three years ago, my family and I dined at I Latina in Buenos Aires and thoroughly enjoyed their eight course gourmet meal complete with wine pairings. I have no idea which dessert we enjoyed but Caelum's Nuvola Dolce Malbec was memorable. We searched Buenos Aires to find a liquor store to buy this delicious dessert wine and finally located 6 bottles. We can not buy this wine in the United States.
Going to Bodega Caelum was essential to stock up on this dessert wine and sample their line of wines.
Fernando had personality plus and was very enthusiastic about this winery and the love of this area. Really who couldn't resist a view of the beautiful Andes in the background.
It as interesting to learn the yearly production was 70,000 bottles and each label was applied by hand. One of the "stars" of the winery was Kitty Perry and a real character.
With a delicious tray of cheeses, raisins and pistachios and the Andes in the background, we thoroughly enjoyed our wine tasting. Of course, we stocked up on the Nuvola Dolce and also bought the 2012 Malbec Reserva and the 2016 Fiano Gran Reserva plus several packages of the pistachios that are locally produced.
This small winery was simply charming and was very concerned with producing quality wines. The Bodega Caelum should be at the top of your list. It will be hard to leave to go to other less personable wineries.

Ellen, hello and thank you so much for your lovely message! It was such a pleasure to welcome you and your parents. We enjoy doing this so much! One of our wines drove you directly to us 3 years later, that's awesome! I'm glad that your experience with us was enjoyable, and hope to see you around again. All the best!

Our friend recommended Caelum to us. We are happy he did! Florencia was amazing start to finish. We coordinated with her ahead of time to make sure we would have time to also visit Ruca Malen, which was down the street. Honestly - I loved Ruca Malen and everyone says the same. That being said, I'd do Caelum over Ruca Malen hands-down for wine. We sampled from the tasting that included cheese, in-house truffles and pistachios. The tasting included their Fiano (they're the only ones who make this Italian white in Mendoza) and their sweet Malbec, which I'm still dreaming about. Loved everything about this place. Go.

If you know nothing about how wine is made, you will get the process explained with ease. We however have visited numerous vineyards around the world so we were interested in the specifics of this winery.

Our host looked after us and chatted as if we were old friends while still describing the culture and ethos of this small and boutique winery. We tried 3 excellent wines, having been shown the small end to end production line manned in total by 10 staff.

If you want a visit that has all the bells and whistles and fireworks, you will be disappointed. If you want a grown up conversation about the nuances of wine, come here.

Obviously the aim is for you to buy their wine. It is not pushy. As a measure of our host, when asked what was the best wine around here, expecting the usual answer of obviously our blah blah from 19xx, she merely said "it is the wine you like; it might be ours which I hope it is, but it might not be and wine is wine, and you are you. Sometimes they meet and there is magic."

We drove past this vineyard after all the others were either closed or needed a reservation. Being nosey, we decided to chance our arm and check the place out. We were greeted by such a friendly host (can't remember her name and she was one of the owners). They seemed to be closing for the day and she still gave us a tour of the winery and let us have a look around the vines. We left with big smiles and a few bottles of their Malbec to polish down. Worth a visit and has a nice intimate family feel to the place unlike others, so definitely recommend a visit.

Caelum was part of our wine tour in Mendoza. We went to Catena which was nice, but I have to say that I liked Caelum much better. It's small, but the tasting was fantastic. The staff took their time explaining all the different wines and grapes. The tasting groups were small and they delivered my wine to my hotel in Buenos Aires at no extra charge. Talk about amazing service. And the wine is excellent!
