Details about this tour

Meet your knowledgeable local guide and small group upon pickup at your hotel and head south of central Mendzoa by minivan to Maip, watching the urban landscape transform into picturesque vineyards along the way.

First, visit the historical winery Trapiche, where you will learn about the grapes and their specialized terroir as the winemakers share their knowledge of viticulture.

In the tasting room, with the barrel room at your feet, try unique wines such as Fond De Cave, Trapiche Coleccin Roble and Trapiche Espumante Extra Brut, while enjoying spectacular mountain views.
Then, your guide will take you on a tour of SinFin and you will sample a style developed over several generations since the winery was founded. Then, learn more about Argentine winemaking traditions from your local winery guide.

Next, go to Familia Zuccardi, a family-run winery founded in 1963 by engineer Alberto Zuccardi, who began experimenting with a California-based method of irrigation when he planted his vines in Maip. Here we will visit their small olive oil factory: Zuelo.

Then, enjoy lunch with your intimate group in the winerys restaurant, Pan y Oliva. Dine on tapas, followed by a main course of pasta, while surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. Your delicious, 3-course meal is accompanied by a variety of breads and olive oils, and paired with Santa Julia wines.

Afterward, relax in your luxury vehicle with your cohort of fellow wine-lovers as your guide transports you back to your Mendoza hotel.

    Loved this tour! Our guide was very kind and friendly. I loved going to Trapiche--it was truly gorgeous! SinFin was not as aesthetically pleasing, though the wine was certainly the best of the three! Santa Julia was very pretty as well. In terms of lunch, they served lasagna, which was a little disappointing since you can get better lasagna in the US, but the other parts of the three course meal were delicious. The whole crew was a little disappointed that we had to do a tour of the olive oil factory at Santa Julia following the lunch, since we were stuffed and filled with wine, but it was a beautiful day, so it worked out! Would certainly recommend.

    Perfect excursion! Good, comfortable transportation, knowledgeable guide, and three fascinating wineries. In addition to wine tasting, we had an olive oil tasting which put another spin on this trip. And the lunch was superb...fine dining at the last of the three wineries. You won't regret taking this tour!
