“Excellent tour of the Wine Country”
Reviewed June 6, 2007

Tupungato is in the heart of Mendoza's breathtaking wine country and Don Romulo and his family know how to show their guest the best sights in town. Tupungato is a small rural town South of Mendoza and only has three hotels. We stayed at Don Romulo's hotel for 2 days and one night. The place is run by Romulo himself and his family. His wife makes all the meals, which were splended and his son, Remo, gave us a personal tour of the best bodegas in the area and was very friendly and knowledgable. We visited Salentein, Bombal, Guiaquinta, and Nonno Artesenal, all in one afternoon! The second day, Remo loaded his pick-up truck and a cooler full of meat and wine and we set off for Romulo's mountain retreat called "El Refujio del Condor." What ever you do in Tupungato, do not miss the opportunity to spend the day in the Refujio horseback riding and trekking in the beautiful mountains. Remo cooks-up an amazing authentic asado for lunch and views are simply breathtaking. Above all, the service provided by Don Romulo and his family surpasses anything I've ever experienced! They bent over backwords to make sure that we enjoyed our short time in Tupungato. The price was offensively low, a mere $80 per person for a cozy room, 5 homecooked meals, a personal wine tour, horseback riding, guided hiking in the mountains, and the trip to the Refujio. I would recommend Don Romulo to anyone wanting an authentic gaucho experience in Mendoza.
