“Nice Surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

We visited Tupungato Divino for lunch and upon arrival, were pleasantly surprised by the rustic simplicity. There are a number of larger scale, popular restaurants available and after my last two years of lunching in the area, rank this as one of my favorite lunch venues in the wine country. It may be off the beaten track but it manages to rival the more well-known lunch spots in what it offers.

It is a quiet setting a drive in from the main road nestled amongst the vineyards. It is located near numerous wineries and has a beautiful setting with Andes in the distance. We were greeted by the owners and the chef asked us to select our wines from an extensive variety of local offerings. We were offered four courses and aside from the 'Principal' selection, each course presented a variety of tastes from the kitchen. It was a nice touch for the chef to deliver and present our courses and the owner stopped by to check in on our experience. The lunch is leisurely and you get an opportunity to wander around the property and take in the nice setting the owner has created for this property.

I was surprised to learn of the hotel and think this would be a wonderful location if you were focused to wine sampling and Andes high mountain tours if you desire a quiet, relaxing, and secluded location in the midst of vineyards. After our stay in Mendoza, we all decided this was one of our top two meals, both lunch and dinner, after our week's stay. Prices were very reasonable both food and wine.

We had a great stay and the location in the Uco Valley allows you to escape the tourists and experience the top Mendoza vineyards, well worth the trip out! Fabulous food (try the White chocolate & rosemary ice cream) and the owners are
on hand to help with wine tours. Rooms are really special with amazing views and enjoying a bottle of local wine at vineyard prices at sunset was fab. Only advice would be to pay in USD to avoid adverse blue dollar exchange as no credit cards!

Divino was a memorable experience for me, the service was well rounded and food, whilst simple, extremely good quality and showed the enthusiasm and capabilities of Christina. The wide selection of wines ( which were very well priced ) is reflective of the region and the quality of the wines produced.

Sergio and Pablo were great hosts, never intrusive but always willing to help out with answers, suggestions and a ride to Tupungato as necessary.

This little hotel is in the mids of the vineyards. Is popular fas a lunch stop. For dinner they provide a small menu for guests. Breakfast is OK. The owners speak enough English to make conversation and the make reservations for winery visits on request. Good selection of wines from the area in the restaurant for reasonable prices.
Only 4 rooms in 2 chalets with a rustic interior, very nice but less luxurious if you come from a place like Antucura. Very good view of the Andes mountains and nearby vineyards as Salentein, Andeluna (very good lunch with winepairing), Jean Bousquet (top range wines are very nice and they are friendly especially Hannah!)
From here we did the trip in to the Andes to the Chilean border (very nice daytrip)
They have a small pool but no sunloungers which is a real miss if you just want to relax after winery visits.

Room Tip: all rooms have same view of the Andes

We stayed here for 3 nights in January 2013 as a base for exploring the Uco Valley, which has a number of interesting wineries which mix excellent wine with some impressive and unusual architecture.

The restaurant looks like it is set up for lunch visits - we were never there that time of day, so only saw it in the evening when they serve dinner for guests - we had the tapas selection which was very nice and good value, and chose a bottle of wine from the extensive selection they have available from the local wineries, which was a nice touch.

The accommodation is very comfortable - bed and separate living area with a fridge and microwave if you wanted to 'eat in' one night, and a good size bathroom with a good shower. The views of the Andes are spectacular and the place has a nice relaxed feel - our only grumble was that we didnt really see the owners in the time we were there, and the lady who was covering only spoke limited English, so we didnt get much of a chance to talk about things to do, which would have been nice. (We will learn some more Spanish next time just in case!)

Definitely recommended - Uco Valley is a more relaxed place to stay than Lujan in my opinion, and its only a 45 minute drive back there if you wanted to visit wineries there as well

Room Tip: there are 4 rooms (2 semi-detached cottages) which looked quite similar, so you cant go wrong....

This was our favorite hotel of our entire trip and I don't know if I can tell you why??? The restaurant was excellent with excellent service. The hosts were very helpful and really knew their wine and their recommendations were spot on. The pool was cold and refreshing. The rooms were nice and the outside sitting area excellent. Princess was cute as was the doggie. All these things were excellent, but what really made it for us, was the view and the peaceful relaxing feeling of just sitting there, drinking excellent cheap wine and watching the mountains - Priceless!
