Half Day Winery Tour

18 reviews
You can discover all the secrets of the world of wine in Mendoza. We visit an artisanal, family and organic winery that shows us the work in the vineyard, the elaboration process, the storage and we finish with the tasting of two wines. Then we visit a modern, boutique winery, where we see the contrast between both industries, enjoy time in the vineyard, and relax by tasting two wines. Next we know an olive oil factory, we are in contact with the plantation, they detail the elaborations and finally we will test the products they produce. At the end of the afternoon we visit a liquor sweet wine cellar, a museum winery with more than 100 years of experience, reveals its secrets so that we can enjoy its valuable and traditional wines. An unforgettable afternoon surrounded by culture, nature and good wine. ATTENTION: THE WINERIES MAY BE SIMILAR TO THE LOADED DUE TO THE AVAILABILITY OF VISITS.

We visited Potrerillos Dam in our way to Cristo Redentor de Los Andes. We did not spend more then 30 minutes here. It is a different view, with all that blue water surrounded by mountains. Very interesting. But, I don't think it pays off to go only to see the dam. It must be part of a trip, like visiting Cristo Redentor de Los Andes or Aconcagua park.

The views are dramatic. The lake is gorgeous but swimming is not allowed. There were few boats but not to tour the lake...no food or restrooms nearby so its not a destination by a stop by only.

Drive on RD 82 (not on 7), and it will get you closer to the water. There are established waterfront access points, where you can go swimming or windsurfing. If you simply come for the landscape, drive all the way to the west end of the reservoir and have a meal at the hotel Gran Hôtel Potrerillos. It has a lovely scenic view and you can linger in their garden or at the swimming pool. Moreover, it has its own vineyard, and the Staphyle Malbec is simply delicious!
