New to the wine circuit, this vineyard at the foot of the Andes is quickly growing in popularity.
Wow. The best bodega that we visited (out of at least 10) in all of Mendoza. We had eaten dinner at 1884 in Mendoza and the somellier had recommended the fantastic red wine blend from this vineyard. The wine was so good that we decided to seek out the vineyard, and we’re glad we did. We booked lunch (four courses with generously poured & well selected wine pairings) and it was outstanding. The food was exquisite, the wine top notch (especially the red wine blend which is paired with the main course) and the service was excellent. Plus the view from the dining room is incredible. If you are in Valle de Uco, make sure you have lunch here!

After searching extensively across several regions of Argentina, Francois Lurton planted his vines in the Uco Valley, in the foothills of the Andes Cordillera, at an altitude of 1,100 m, in semi-desert conditions. A pioneer of the Uco Valley, he built his winery, Bodega Piedra Negra, in the heart of 200 hectares of virgin land acquired in the middle of what, a few years later, would become the Geographical Indication of Los Chacayes. Visit our vineyard and learn about our organic philosophy over the course of a private guided tour. We offer a superb range of activities enabling you to learn about the wines and the terroir and explore the environment surrounding the Hacienda.

We went in January 2019 to Clos de los Siete. It is a collection of seven (siete) vineyards that was the brainchild of a prominent French winemaker, Michel Rolland, who partnered with seven Bordeaux families to create this unique wine making project. Spectacular setting and excellent wines. We visited two of the seven and were not disappointed. Highly recommended.

At the feet of the Andes, sitting at 1090m, lie Tikal Natural Vineyards. A variety of grapes, including Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah are grown over 48 ha of cultivated land, however, Tikal Natural is more than just a vineyard; it is a piece of art, a perfect example of the symphony between man and land. The vineyard has been Demeter certified biodynamic since 2012, taking practices beyond organic through the generation of Finca Tikal Natural’s inputs, such as native yeast, from the living dynamics of the vineyard. At Tikal Natural Vineyards wine is made through the translation of land to glass.
We have loved Organic Animal Malbec since the first time we tasted it nearly 4 years ago. Since then we've had countless of bottles of this amazing wine. So when we planned our visit to Mendoza this year, visiting Ernesto Catena was at the top of our priorities. And it was the absolute best decision we could have made. The first thing that needs mentioning is the quality of their staff. Lucio was our companion for the day and there are not enough positive words to describe him. His flair and playfulness abounds, his professionalism is top, and his knowledge of the grounds, the history of the family, the wine and Ernesto's personal vision is abundant. We laughed and frolicked through the day together, learning, exploring, discovering all the different grapes and techniques used for the art of wine making. (thank you Lucio! We will not forget you!) The amount of wine poured was beyond generous from a sparkling rose to the most delicious deep robust reds. And the food... Well, that leads me to Cynthia the Asadora. Cynthia's food was amazing and her kind spirit did not go unnoticed. She started the day with pizza al horno (oven-made pizza), with prosciutto and arugula, and a classic margarita, paired with a deliciously chilled rose bubbly. We later followed with a classic asado (3 different cuts of meat cooked to perfection) with four or five different vegetable sides, every vegetable grown on the very property we were exploring. Everything we ate was handmade with love and care by Cynthia from the pizza crust to the asado di tierra to the peach/arugula salad. Thank you Cynthia. The tour is less about the details of wine production, although you are shown many aspects of it, and is more about the artistic flair behind Ernesto's vision of wine culture. After a beautiful day spent touring Ernesto's vineyard, you are left uplifted with an essence of his vision and passion for life and wine. There is a playful and creative spirit that runs through everything you see, touch, and taste, and the thoughtfulness and care will astound. The from the beginning to end, this is the wine tour is a must. Above all this, our tour was completely private. Exclusive to our party. What incredible luck we had in that sense. Organic, biodynamic, fair price, fun, abundant, generous, kind, playful, thoughtful, private, exclusive. Don't miss it.
