We read the reviews of wineries before coming to Mendoza. Tierras Altos was the only one I booked, after Reading many reviews. It was definitely the right decision.
Daniel & Freddy, met us upon arrival, with a wonderful rose. Then discussed their family’s wine making and educational philosophy.
We have been to Napa/Sonoma, along with other wineries in the USA, however we have never learned more of not only the wine making and tasting process. We left feeling we could become sommelier’s - it was that informative!! And oh by the way it was very easy & enjoyable all while tasting the best wine we have had in Mendoza!
I can not say enough about how hospitable & helpful both Freddy & Daniel were! There kitchen was closed so they took us to a competitor that had a incredible lunch with tasting.
This place is a MUST TRY!!!!!

Baccus Vineyards Biking

Reviewed By PilotMichael - Pasadena, California

Surrounding this beautiful community just outside of downtown Mendoza, there are many beautiful streets to ride bikes and quite a few wineries that you can visit by bicycle. What’s really nice about Bacchus biking is that when you’re done for the day they’ll come get the bikes wherever you are. You do not have to bring them back to them. They are very nice people at this bike shop. The bikes are in excellent condition. Definitely a great way to spend the day.

cerro de los 7 colores

Reviewed By davidgoldberg1 - Toronto, Canada

We saw this striking jumble of triangular hills when we stopped at the colorful indigenous market town of Purmamarca on our way from Salta to Humahuaca. It was our first premonition of the famous Quebreda de Humahuaca, almost a piece that had broken off and now stands all by itself. It was easier to believe that it had been produced as a consequence of venal mining practices rather than by the natural processes of marine sedimentation, river and lake movements, and the shifting of tectonic plates over millennia of time. Yet another colorful feather in the cap of this wondrous and insufficiently known region of Northern Argentina.

Plaza Francia

A pleasant and easy going place to walk around on a sunny afternoon. You can take a seat and see other strollers go by. There are ice-cream shops nearby or eateries nearby on Hirigoyen Ave. There is also a kiddies entertainment which I have not visited I must admit, but seems pretty full of people on warm Sunday evenings.

This is a fantastic event to do. It is a demonstration with some hands on cooking class with a really good chef at a wonderful boutique hotel and winery. Arrive early if you are not staying here to walk around and start drinking their wonderful malbec. Cristina is great, walking you through the making of chimichurri and empanadas. She gives both cooking and cultural tips as she goes on. You wine glass by the way is never empty! You then cook a great steak and vegis and enjoy a killer meal. Hopefully there will be a few others so the evening is a great social/food and wine night. Do it.

Bodega Cruzat. Bubbles Experience

Cruzat is a winery intended only for the production of quality sparkling wines, produced using the traditional method or "champenoise" (second fermentation in the bottle). The winery was founded in 2004 by a group of Chilean businessmen and by Argentinian Agricultural Engineer and Winemaker Pedro Federico Rosell. WINE TOURISM The experience of knowing this "factory of sparkling" goes beyond a tour and tasting. From the winery we strive for visitors to learn, identify and compare with other elaborations and process. The production area is open to our curious visitors; you can see and sometimes work at the cellar, the disgorging machine and label some bottles. The tasting room is oriented to the Andes Mountain and vineyards. We propose that our visitors enjoy and learn from what we do every day.
