Itinerary
Stop At:  
Bodega Alta Vista
Alta Vista was founded by Count Patrick d’Aulan, heir of more than 250 years of family tradition in the winemaking industry. The technical team is a multidisciplinary and bicultural one, whose members have been working together since the beginning of the project. Nominated in the category ‘New World Winery of the Year 2016’ by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Bodega Nieto Senetiner
In 1888, Italian immigrants founded te winery and grew the first vineyards in Vistalba, Luján de Cuyo, province of Mendoza. Over the first decades of the last century, the winery was run by several families who succeeded in passing on the secret of fine winemaking and the love for their land. In 1969 it is acquired by the families Nieto and Senetiner, who expand the facilities signalling the beginning of a new stage of growth and brand development.
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Tempus Alba
The water of the Andes Mountains did not only allay the thirst of a healthy ambition of progress and freedom, but it also allowed the family to settle down in this beautiful country, and the growing of a vigorous family tree, reaching nowadays five generations. They planted vines still they remain standing straight as faithful witnesses of that challenge. They built vessels with their own hands to allow the miracle of turning grapes into wine. Making this dream come true is the next chapter, and writing it is the job of the generations to come. Just like that end, that is not the end, this is the beginning of a story; the dawn puts an end to the darkness of the night and at the same time, it is the beginning of a new day full of light, energy and hope.
Duration: 3 hours 
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
LAUR Olivícola
Founded in 1906, Laur was a pioneer not only in the implementation of olive trees in Mendoza but also in the olive oil industry. In 2020, it was named the 3rd most important olive oil factory in the world and the 1st one in Argentina.

Really excellent well paced wine tour. Started at Tempus Alba winery with excellent explanation from member of the winders. Then on to olive oil producers which was good to pace the wine tasting. Then another excellent look around LaGarde then a really excellent meal at Clos de Charcas

Mendoza Wine Tour with Lunch
Matthew_W

The tour started out with a visit to Bodega Tempus Alba, a boutique winery in every sense. Our guide Amir (who took the English-speaking tour) was fantastic. He introduced the group to the philosophy underpinning the wineries approach to perfecting the grapes grown onsite. He was kind, sincere and most importantly knew what he was talking about. After leading our group through a tour of the winery and explaining the nuts and bolts of the wine making process, he stepped the group through four tastings. While some people on the tour knew almost nothing about wine, a few people knew some things about wine, and myself a bit more, Amir ensured everyone was comfortable and was happy to answer any questions. I purchased a bottle of their flagship wine Vero Malbec after I was offered a tasting (not included as part of the tour, but no charge to tour guests). This was a perfect way to start the day. Highly recommend Tempus Alba. The next stop was the olive oil factory. This was pleasant, informative and a welcome addition to the tour. The host was friendly and was happy to answer questions. The third stop was Bodega Luigi Bosca. The wines are ok, but nothing spectacular. Strangely during a set tasting our group was poured the sparkling white after trying three red wines. Classic mistake. There was also a white wine offered to begin with, don't know what type of wine it was as it wasn't offered to me, but it was offered to others in the group....weird! What was even weirder was I asked if they offer tastings on the Cabernet Franc which they did....but they don't sell it. Then I asked to try the Cabernet Bouchet, which they sell but don't offer tastings. To cap it off, I purchased a bottle of wine for approx. AUD$50 and they charged me twice. Basically, an average winery and/or staff that don't know what they’re doing. Disappointing after such as great experience at Tempus Alba. Lunch was a relaxing event, offering four courses with matching wines (including options for vegetarians). This was a nice way to finish the day and capped off what was all up an enjoyable day trip from Mendoza. The tour host Anita (Ana) was lovely, great fun and can speak multiple languages. I highly recommend the tour for people starting out with wine knowledge or those looking to learn a bit more.

I and my family is highly satisfied with this particular tour. Timing, winery selection and the lunch offered were great! Our tour guide was excellent, fluent in both English and Spanish and providing detailed information on all the wineries and Mendoza region in general. I'd definitely recommend this tour and in case of a chance will take it again!

My husband and I loved the tour, we visited three wineries with excellent experiences in tasting and lunch. We also visited an olive oil producer which was entertaining and delicious as well. Staff was courteous, smiling, knowledgeable. They were about 30 minutes late picking us up, but the day more than made up for the wait. Definitely recommended!

This was one of the best tours I have ever taken. Our tour Guide Ana was excellent in explaining the places we would visit and did not rush us throughout the entire day. We visited 2 Bodega along with an olive oil factory. The wine tastings were very generous but most importantly the tours were extremely informative. I live close to the Napa Valley in California and I feel I learnt more on this trip then the tours I have taken before. To end the day we had a nice lunch in a lovely restaurant and the wine kept flowing. I highly recommend this tour.

We just didn't find the tour that exciting. There was some English from the guide and from winery staffs, but not always. The lunch turned out to be a picnic lunch under some trees that were inhabited by a flock of birds. The tables and chairs were covered with bird doo when we arrived, which didn't set a pleasant tone and even though staff cleaned it up, the birds added more, to the tables and the guests,as we tried to eat. The staff tried to charge us 25 for a car back to our hotel that we didn't want and had turned down--and which they had offered for 10 in the first place.

A tour for wine lovers only! We visited 3 beautiful wineries and an olive oil factory and had ample tastings at each one. Lunch was served picnic style on the lovely grounds of the last winery. Our tour guide was terrific. Great day!

This was such a lovely wine tour. Two highlights: The first winery's tour was given by the owner herself. It was awesome to hear the passion and wine tasting was very well setup. Two other wine tour was just as lovely. The 2nd highlight was their lunch. The third winery had a large green space where they set up different areas for people to sit and enjoy gourmet lunch. Some where tables, but there were areas where you get to sit on the grass with full picnic setup! It was so cute and definitely a highlight. Con: You will likely be mixed with spanish speakers. As an american, I feel like I missed out on much of the narratives. They did make best attempt to do the tour in english and spanish, but inevitably they are better and lengthier with spanish.

The trip was disappointing - we signed up for an english tour and were put with a spanish group. While the guide did her best to accommodate, we still feel we missed out on a lot. Secondly, we feel it was overpriced. We would recommend picking a different tour.

Three wineries to visit. A modern one, a very old historic one and a third which was slightly larger than the others. Very good guide, Flavia, and the places were all different, wine tasting was good. We also saw an olive oil plant, again family run and historic. The birds in the gardens were parakeets and they had amazing condominium type nests. Excellent picnic at the third winery, lovely gardens there too. Great day out, fully recommend.

Collected from our hotel by our English speaking guide and started in the first winery just after half past 10 am (it's lunchtime somewhere?). All in all a good day, the olive oil producer was so so! Great picnic lunch at Alta Vista, if I had one reservation it would be we did not try enough Malbec!

A wonderful tour, lasts just the right amount of time. Each winery visited has its own special character and offers a unique experience both of wine and the region. Best taken with a friend, but it is still excellent if you go solo. The particular bodegas visited on this tour are helpful in guiding your approach to wine tasting - good for newbies and seasoned wine veterans alike.
