It is often difficult to single out what makes the perfect meal and in this case it is impossible. The place itself is a little unprepossessing from the road, in fact we drove past it. But do not let that fool you. This is a fantastic spot for lunch! It is exactly what you would ask for in an outdoors meal, surrounded by vines in the Uco Valley.

We sat out in the sun under a pergola type arrangement. It is a 5 course wine-pairing menu, as is common in this area, which really served a perfect representation of the food and wine of the area. The service was attentive, informative, but not overpowering. Ezekiel - the grandson of the founder of the vineyard - was on hand serving the wine. After the amazing dinner - which as part of which I had delicious bbq steak, though there were at least three other choices - Ezekiel took us into the very small winery - and told us a bit about the winery and gave us a tasting from the barrel. The size of the winery is such that the top wine they do is of a very limited run.

We loved the wine and the tasting so much we ended up buying one of the bottles, and even with this added to the menu, the bill was extremely reasonable.

I cannot recommend Bodega Azul enough!

We came here for lunch with Uncorking Argentina, and are so happy we did! We sat with the view of the mountains for a delicious 5 course meal with wine pairings. The casual atmosphere, fresh food, and great wine was one of the most memorable meals on our trip to Argentina!

I can only second the other reviews - this place is a true gem, and the was the highlight of our trip to Mendoza. The wines made here are simple but spectacular, the best we tastes in the area. The lunch simply phenomenal - the food was so exceptionally good we started laughing, thinking a famous chef was hiding in the kitchen. In short, if you got to spend a few days around Mendoza do not miss this place.

Where does one start!? Azul left us speechless, they are soooo attentive, warm & sincere that now being back in the U.S. we realize this was a one of a kind experience. Bitter sweet for us :/ :)

Surrounding area:
Rustic & earthy, soooo calming, much welcomed after 2 days of wine touring. If you can't unwind here, you're in trouble.

The wine throughout our meal paired nicely with all our dishes thanks to our server Pablo, he enhanced our experience to the 10th power.


Cuisine:
Their bread basket was fantastic (cooked in a wood fire oven) pretty addicting.
The rib eye (Ojo de Bife) was the highlight of our dining experience. Moist, juicy, flavorful, flawless cooked to perfection.
The pork was really tasty as well.
Beet purée was to die for, wished for more.
Sweet cream pie (pastel de choclo) wow, never had this before, great stuff.

Finally, for dessert we were served caramelized flan with strawberries...nice & light. Perfect way to end our visit @ Azul.

Ezequiel (owner) & his (father-in-law) chef Baeza are phenomenal people, it was great meeting you all.

Congratulations & best of luck!!!
