Your host will pick you up at the hotel and we will head towards to the Uco Valley region. Once there, we will visit the small Gimenez Riili winery, which has an extraordinary view of the Andes Mountain Range. The Gimenez Riili family has been involved in winemaking since the end of the 19th Century.
Immediately after, we will visit the impressive Salentein Winery, where besides tasting, weâ€™ll visit Killka: a very special art gallery with spaces for works of art from local, national and international artists.
At lunch time we'll go to La Azul winery, small and familiar winery. We will taste all the high qulity that are produced in the winery, during the delicious lunch we will enjoy in the small restaurant of the winery.
Return to hotel.
* Sample itinerary, all wineries can be modified. Please ask for other wineries available.
"Thank you again for taking care of my requests. I appreciate the very good job you did. The wine tour turned out lovely. Even my granddaughter enjoyed herself. Our guide was very good at her job of explaining the wineries to us prior to our arrival and making sure the tours moved along. Her English was good and she was able to answer our questions about Mendoza and the surrounding area. She is friendly and engaging and makes one feel comfortable. The driver was also pleasant and spoke English quite well and of course knew the area. As I told you, my husband and I have visited wineries in the Mendoza area before and we grew up in California near Napa/Sonoma and have visited the wineries there many times....so we were familiar with the process. However, my daughter and son-in-law and granddaughter had not been in the Mendoza area prior to this visit. Also, Dawn (my daughter) was able to use this visit for her work. At each of the wineries we all learned something new. Each winery was different enough to have a few methods or techniques that varied from the other wineries that made it interesting. Each winery had its own style and we liked different varieties at each of the wineries. We are all partial to Malbec's and were surprised by the Petit Verdot and a couple of Cabernet Sauvignon's. As I said, our granddaughter also enjoyed herself. She paid attention on the tours and actually asked a couple of good questions. This experience will be something she will remember and will have learned from. This is the second "offical" time that we have used the services of Aventura & Wine. I have recommended your company to our friends in the past and will continue to do so."
