Best wine tours in Mendoza

Why Visit Mendoza?

Wine tasting tours in Mendoza combine high-class restaurants, art and culture, bicycle rides, cooking classes, and even the possibility of harvesting or crafting your own blend. Home to the World's Best Vineyard for the last 3 years running it's also one of the 11 Great Wine Capitals of the world! Oh, and did we mention Malbec...? Surrounded by the incredible vistas of the Andes and an expanse of high-altitude fresh air, Mendoza is truly a dream wine destination.

The wine and food industry in Mendoza is changing at an incredible pace, with new restaurants, wineries, and winemaking methods being pioneered every single day. You'll find boutique wineries still using original 100-year-old vines alongside futuristic wineries where concrete eggs sit side by side with ancient amphorae ... and do we even need to mention how stunning the views are? Mendoza is the most important winemaking region in Argentina, producing almost two thirds of the country's entire wine quota, and some of the most well-known names in Argentina can be visited here, including world-famous Catena Zapata and Familia Zuccardi

WINE TASTING TOURS IN MENDOZA

There are three main wine regions in Mendoza to visit; the Eastern region Maipu (the oldest region), Lujan de Cuyo (just south of the city and considered the premier Malbec zone) and the Uco Valley (80 km south and home to Mendoza's highest altitude vineyards, right at the base of the Andes). Each is very different to the last and wine lovers will find it well worth spending at least one day in each place. Wine travellers can choose from a vast array of wine tours in Mendoza including private and group wine tasting tours, wine tours by horseback or by bike, wine, and food pairing tours, and Argentine cooking classes.

FOOD TASTING EXPERIENCES IN MENDOZA

You'll find a plethora of outstanding world-class restaurants within the wine estates themselves. And within Mendoza, more world-class restaurants sit alongside cool sidewalk cafes and busy bistros. Lunches here are long, leisurely and fuelled by copious amounts of local wine!

MORE REASONS TO VISIT MENDOZA

Mendoza City is a small but cosmopolitan destination with great nightlife and a relaxed country vibe. The historical center provides plenty of sights and museums, including the Museo del Area Fundacional on Pedro del Castillo Square and the Museo Nacional del Vino, which is a great place to get to grips with Argentine wine culture before you head out to the winelands to see everything in action! A little further outside the city is the Casa de Fader, an 1890 mansion once home to artist Fernando Fader that now houses a permanent exhibition of his artwork. However, perhaps Mendoza City's greatest asset is its perfect position as a base for heading out to tour the area's amazing wineries and taking part in adventure sports in and around Aconcagua National Park. 

 

 

WINERIST INSIDER TIP.
If you happen to be in the region during September, we thoroughly recommend that you check out Tango Through the Vines, where each year, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Mendoza and Bodegas de Argentina put on a series of tango performances all around Mendoza at locations such as museums, wineries, theatres, hotels and restaurants. The festival lasts twelve days and is an absolute must if you are in the vicinity.
