“Overpriced for the value”

Bodegas Cavas de Don Arturo
Ranked #8 of 36 things to do in Maipu
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 January 2016

The tour itself is just OK but the wine is not good at all, and they have a "special cuvée" from their daughter wedding. they said it worth 200USD but accept to sell it for 30USD because they like you... yeah yeah.

If their cabernet sauvignon could be drinkable, their malbec has no length in mouth and is like a "turisto wino", worth 25ARS

I visited this Bodega as a part of touristic tour. Despite it was highly recommended as a "boutique Bodega", the visit was short, really unimpressive. The guide was really good and nice, but I was expecting more. Wine was ok, but not exceptional. Just a good place to visit if you do not know anything about wine production. If you have visited California, France or Spain Bodegas, it is not good idea to see this one.

This is a cute place with a nice tour. It's family owned and had a lot of history.They only make red wine. The wine was decent.

Tour was great, the tour guide was extremely friedly, knowledgable and spoke clearly and explained the entire process of wine making to the point that our group knew exactly how to make wine afterwards! We had visited a much bigger bodega previously but we enjoyed Cavas de Don Arturo much more! The wine tasting was so delicious, our guide opened several bottles and poured away!! This wine is much harder to find so we purchased a few bottles of their best wine take back home!!
