Half Day Wine Experience
Highlights / General details
Travel down beautiful wine country routes to some of the most impressive wineries in the Mendoza area. Relax and enjoy yourself while we do the driving. Learn about the many varieties of world class wines produced in the area as well as the other regions of Argentina’s rich wine growing culture.
Although the Mendoza area has a moderately dry climate, irrigation techniques have been implemented to capture snow melt runoff from the Andes Mountains to the east allowing wineries to grow many of the most highly sought after wine grapes in the world. Learn about how a desert was turned into an oasis by means of canals and irrigation ditches. The system, originally created by the indigenous Huarpes people, is now run by computerized drip irrigation allowing Argentina, despite the dryness, to be one of the top wine producers in the world.
Visit two wineries where wine scientists will explain the wine-making process and allow you to participate in a wine tasting session. You’ll also visit an olive oil factory where you’re invited to enjoy a taste test of freshly produced oils often a part of appetizers paired with fine Argentinean wines. Spending a fun and relaxing day with us in the stunning Mendoza wine country is a truly unforgettable experience for the senses.
