My friend and I visited from London, UK in November 2017. The vineyard had been recommended to me by a friend who'd visited a few years earlier and I'm really glad we followed her advice. We booked a tasting experience via our hotel in Mendoza City, and when we were delayed by a very late taxi the vineyard staff were very relaxed about it and allowed us to join the next slot, offering us a seat in the beautiful garden and complimentary wine while we waited.

The tasting experience itself was great, with really interesting insights into the vineyard itself and the wine making process. Our guide Cecilia was so friendly - she was genuinely interested to hear about our trip to Argentina and spoke perfect English. There was only one other couple in our group so it was a really personal experience - the wine was delicious and we felt throughout it all that there was no rush to get through it or any pressure to purchase any wine at the end (although we did, as it was delicious).

Cecilia also gave us a great recommendation (and directions) for lunch at the nearby Renacer Bodega, where we spent the rest of our lovely day in Mendoza. Thanks for a great experience!

I like Malbec wine and this was a good place to experience the three regions that are used to make the various wines. Not much to see in the barrel room but a lot to enjoy by the glass.

I’m giving this two stars because of woeful communication. I tried calling, emailing and messaging on Facebook and only got one noncommittal email back. Absolutely pathetic, so could never actually go as nothing was confirmed.

I visited here from the US in May of 2017 for an afternoon of wine tasting and a tour of the barrel room, both of which were very nice. I decided to purchase a case of wine and was told they would ship it out to me the following week. When I got home I contacted them to see if it had been shipped. I received no response, but a month later my wine showed up...one of which had broken during the shipment. I contacted the winery via email about either or refund or replacement for the bottle, with no response. I emailed 6 times over the next two months until I finally got a response that the boss had been away and they would ship a new bottle the following week. It is now October and I still have not received a replacement bottle, a refund, or an explanation. I would not recommend buying wine from here and having it shipped to you, especially if you live in the U.S. - not to mention you can get the exact same bottles here for about half the price the winery sells them for. I wish I had known before hand.

At least 4 different groups were scheduled for 9:30 a.m., and they separated each by language into their own tour. Cecilia was very knowledgeable and an excellent English speaker. She gave us the history of the winery and winemaker, and showed us their winemaking process. We even tasted wine from the barrel.

After the tour we were taken into a private room, where we had the opportunity to taste 4 wines, all of which were excellent. There was also a wine list of wines available for purchase.

Like all wineries we visited, there was a guard at the gate, and you could only enter if you had previously made reservations and were on the guard's list. The grounds and the view were beautiful.
