“Fantastic Wine Tour in Lujan de Cuyo”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We live in Australia so have been on many wine tours, but this was by far the best we have ever experienced. Our guide was Majo; she was extremely knowledgable and passionate about wine, and she grew up in the area so had a fantastic relationship with all of the staff at the wineries we visited, which made for a really personal experience. The wineries were obviously carefully chosen for their experience as much as their quality of wines, making for a unique and fantastic day. We haven't used any of the other companies so it's not possible to compare but we would highly recommend Ampora. They also run tours to Uco Valley (the new winemaking area) but we chose to visit Lujan de Cuyo.

“Well Organized and Fun Wine Tour!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

The Ampora Wine Tour is a great experience and exposure to some of the best wineries in Medoza. The best parts about the tour are:
- Small group so you're able to ask several questions to the knowledgeable tour guide and you get a great history of wine making in Argentina
- Choice of wineries that only allow small tours and you get to meet some of the owners
- Amazing lunch! One of the best lunches I had in Mendoza
- Ease of tour - pick up and drop off process was perfect
- We were allowed plenty of time to hang out at the winery, take pictures, purchase wine etc.

Thanks Orlena for a fun, yummy (wine and lunch), and informative day!

“I can't imagine our trip without Ampora!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

The guides on Ampora's tours are beyond belief. They are so knowledgeable, so friendly, so accommodating -- you'll be blown away. Plus, the wineries that Ampora selects have a perfect combination of delicious wine and wonderful staff. We did the Past to Present deluxe tour, plus a deluxe tour of the Luyan de Cuyo Valley. It was expensive, but I would say it was definitely worth it.

“what a great day!!!”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

we took our tour in july 2011 and i'm just writing reviews now. this was a great way to experience different bodegas and different styles of wine making. we also saw a nice mix of large and small wineries and then ended with a fabulous meal and...MORE WINE!!! highlights included the tank tasting and and the story of the vineyard with the award wining grapes with that interesting grape disease that was in remission (keikan).
