“A True Argentine Wine Experience”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I just came back from a week in Mendoza and what a trip! My wife and I adored Lagarde. Not just because the wine was outstanding and the food was truly but because it felt authentic.

Lagarde was our first visit and I had so many expectations for these vineyard visits after all of the blogs, books and emails with recs I had received from friends. I have to say upon first arrival I wasn't really impressed but then as we were met by the lovely Carolina impressions began to change. The place was immaculate. They have the oldest wine in Argentina. The top wines were excellent. It's owned by a local family that claims they will never sell it.

My favorite part was that the vineyard was owned by another family in past. They sold it to the current family in 1960s for 1 peso as the past owner had no heirs and he choose the friend who he believed truly appreciated the wine cultivation the most. I mean those type of stories don't exist elsewhere.

I guess afterwards when we went to Mendel, Archaval Ferrer, Salentein, Cavos and Catena, none seemed to have that old world feel like Lagarde. Maybe I'm a romantic about not wanting wine to be a big business as many of the others are (with some great wines as well) but Lagarde stood out as the most authentic of the vineyards we visited. Looking forward to going back.

“Charming Bodega and Amazing Culinary Experience”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We loved Bodega Lagarde. Going during off-season, we practically had the entire bodega to ourselves, which was a nice surprise. The setting is lovely and tucked away in the town of Lujan de Cuyo, offering a wonderful oasis from the streetscape nearby. Starting off with the decadent 5 course, wine-paired lunch, it was a fabulous introduction to the variety of wines offered by the bodega and their top-notch food. The entire meal was made on the grill in the courtyard by the chef, who we heard was new at the time and he did nothing but impress! If the weather was nicer, we could have chosen to sit outdoors and watch the action first-hand in the courtyard. But, we found the dining room to very charming and quaint with black and white photographs of the grape harvest. Each plate was delicious, unique and beautifully presented. Our most memorable was the entree, consisting of a filet medallion, malbec reduction sauce, roasted vegetables and garnished with a perfect amount of salt crystals. It was the best steak we had during our visit to Argentina (and my fiance's family is actually from Argentina, so we'd like to think it says a lot!). The service was top-notch and extremely friendly. Coupled with the great food, wonderful wines, it was a very good value for the amount paid. Led on a nice tour through the bodega after lunch, Carolina was exceptionally knowledgeable and accommodating to our questions and palates. Having had such a memorable experience and truly enjoying their wines, we have ultimately decided to use their line of wines at our wedding in the States this upcoming October. We hope to return to Bodega Lagarde in the near future and definitely recommend not only their wines to our friends visiting (and in the States), but also making sure they venture out there during their trip to Mendoza. Thank you Lagarde for creating such a memorable experience for us!!! Hasta Pronto!

“Uniquely Fantastic in Every Way”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

We spent an afternoon at Lagarde, one of three vineyards we went to that day. The tour was nothing too spectacular, but the lunch was absolutely fantastic. After touring, you sit in an open courtyard where they begin an amazingly decadent 5 course lunch. We started with a steak crostini paired with a light white wine. Then we sat and were brought freshly made rolls and a grilled vegetable mix. Each course came with a new wine, and the staff was so attentive. Watching your food being prepared and smelling all the delicious spices and meat made this lunch one for the memory books. It was also my Birthday and the fantastic staff brought us a bottle of champaign to take home to celebrate. The wines were superb and the food was the best I had in Mendoza. A must do while touring the vineyards !
