Probably the best eateries in the Mendoza region, their wine food matches are excellent, the quality of the dishes and the ingredients is AAA, the service is top class and the atmosphere is unbeatable with a view towards the snow covered Andes (October). And the wines: Similar to Bodega Pulmary not going for the high alcohol over ripe version of Cab Sauvignon, Malbec s and Chardonnay. We were invited to taste some older vintages of their wines and I have to admit we were blown away by a 2003 Malbec -- yes, the old style of Argentinean Malbec with high alcohol but what a wine --- soft but noticeable and well integrated tannins, fruit cake components, vanilla, berry and toasty flavours, on the palate like a vintage port with fruit flavours again and a subtle sweetness and , ruby colour and loooong finish -- a dream paring with the tenderloin !!

What an afternoon, worth every Pesos!!! Reservations required.

I am sooo thankful I had friends recommend to go here. It was a fabulous experience a tour of the winery and a multi course wine paring lunch. It is a beautiful place with the Andes in the background. The wine is wonderful and the meal was perfection. If you go to Mendoza and don't do this, you didn't go to Mendoza.
