Owner description: Brigitte and Philippe Subra came from France in 1998 to live in Mendoza. Philippe managed a company in the electric business of Mendoza for more than 4 years. They created CarinaE Viñedos y Bodega (CarinaE SA) in January of 2003. The company dedicates itself to produce high quality wines, with grapes that are produced in its own vineyards of low yields located in the traditional first zone of Mendoza.The wines are made in the winery they rebuilt at their property in Cruz de Piedra, Maipú.CarinaE has near 20ha of productive vineyards that are spread around its property at Tres Esquinas, Cruz de Piedra, Maipú (8 ha of 85 years vineyard of Malbec, 0,5 ha of Syrah, and 2 ha of Sabernet-Sauvignon), and on the famous Calle Cobos in Perdriel, Luján de Cuyo (3ha and 4,5ha of 90 years old vineyards of Malbec). Near the Cruz de Piedra property, a little vineyard of 2ha was newly planted with syrah and malbec, and begun to produce syrah in 2011.This “Boutique” winery has a vat capacity of 260,000 liters. It has renewed concrete vats coated with epoxy paint and a cellar with 200 French barrels. CarinaE has the necessary technology to produce high-quality wines.

“A modern vineyard bodega with an informative tour, but worth a visit for the high quality of the wines”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012 via mobile

The bodega buildings that one seems on the wine tour here are not so special - the wine hall and cellar at Di Tommaso are much much more interesting, but the guide was highly informative and spoke perfect English, was eloquent and could respond to questions - and best of all, the Carinae malbecs and other wines were some of the most delicious we tasted anywhere. Worth a visit for the tasting.

“Our favourite tasting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

We started here on our bike tour because it was the furthest one out and Birgitte, the owner met us outside and ushered us in. She doesn't really speak English but was very sweet and let us on to a tour that had just started. It's a small place so it has such a lovely and intimate feel about it. Or tour guide was fantastic - I can't remember her name but she was knowledgeable, friendly and gave her opinions on what she liked and why, which we found that you don't always get. The tasting is $20 for a basic three flights or you can house from different flights, which we ended up doing - there's no pressure or anything though and same with buying wine. No hard sell or awkwardness. She even gave us some bread at the end so our other tastings to help cleanse the palate at the end.

They are very kind, we appreciated a lot their attention. The bodega is charmed and small comparing with others ones we visited, but we appreciated this visit.
