“Outstanding!”
Review of Cepas Elegidas

Cepas Elegidas
Ranked #39 of 47 things to do in Maipu
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Outstanding, amazing, interesting!
What else could I say...
Out of the 4 wines we visited with my wife this was (by far) our best and most interesting visit.
The chief winemaker, Brennan Firth (from Arizona I believe) knows how to share his love and passion for wines and goes the extra mile climbing the shelves to take some samples directly from the french oak barrels so you can try some of his best vintages.
I don't actually know how long we stay there... and how many different wines we tried... but it was definitely quite a lot!

Bravo Brennan, and thanks a lot for that unforgettable time.
Chapeau!

Small and very charming bodega where every single grape is sorted by hand to get out the most delicious wine in the end. During the tour I learned a lot about wine from Brennan's wide wine knowledge. The different wines I tasted were simply extraordinary each and every single one and most surprisingly they are really affordable. Apart from the great price/performance ratio this bodega has another plus: as winemaker Brennan speaks Spanish and English, both perfectly fluent, people whose Spanish is only basic will still be able to understand and enjoy the tour.
Had a lot of fun and first time I have to make space for some bottles instead of shoes... ;)

Have visited many wineries in Mendoza but haven't ever had an experience as special and amazing as at Cepas Elegidas. The winemaker Brennan pulls samples out of barrels right in front of you and explains his wines and the wines of the region with much care. Superb wines, and even better, they are cheeeaaaapp! I thought the wines were more refined and delicious than those of the more famous wineries we visited early in the day but he sells them for only a fraction of the price! I am definitely taking some bottles back to the states with me. Real gem of a winery and aunique experience :)
