The tasting at Pulenta stood out among the several Mendoza vineyards we visited. While at a very high but apparently standard level in architecture and technology, the tasting stood out for two reasons: First, the wines were not the usual assortment of malbecs and cabs, but included a cabernet franc. Second, wines were thoughtfully paired with cheeses, nuts, and raisins.

Especially for Americans and other native English speakers, Pulenta will be a delight. Michelle, the Missouri-born hospitality manager, gives an insightful tour rich with detail, followed by a tasting that includes smelling the aromas of the actual components of a wine's bouquet (for example, actual strawberries in a glass).

Pulenta's facility is modern, but not over-the-top silly like some, and their wines are uniformly excellent. The Cabernet Franc is perhaps the most pleasant surprise of all. I highly recommend a visit.

We went to Pulenta Estate to do a bike visit! It was wonderful!
The Visit was private (just me, my boyfriend and the guide Michelle).
It was so interesting because we were able to ride trough the vines and taste different types of grape!
Michelle explained everything about the growth and care of each type of grape!
After, we saw a little bit of the wine production and went to the cava to a degustation! So nice! 4 glasses of great Wines!
Everything was so precious! We loved it!

The very best winery we visited in Mendoza. The mountain setting was spectacular. The winery itself is a beautiful building, with a relaxing feel. Our tour guide Constanza was the best tour guide we encountered in Mendoz. She was extremely knowledgable, fun, and entertaining. The wine was incredible. If you are doing wine tour and tasting do not miss this one, it is tops on my list

The tour we arranged with "T+W" gave us a unique opportunity to smell different fruits, herbs, spices, etc in empty wine glasses (blind-folded) to help explore and recognize different scents/aromas.
The winery is beatiful, and the quality of the wine is high. Brought a bottle back to Canada so this is a physical endorsement!

Thank you for your feedback! We are happy to hear you liked the visit. For others to know, the tour agency Trout and Wine includes Pulenta Estate on their full day tour to Uco Valley. They receive the aroma tasting which includes a blind-folded aroma game before tasting 4 wines. You can find their information on their website, troutandwine.com.

You can also reserve this tasting with us writing to reservas@pulentaestate.com

Thanks again!
