La Quebrada del Condor-Day Trip

A rustic old family house lost in the middle of the Andes, surrounded by high peaks, all kind of flora, streams with beautiful trout, majestic Condors ruling the sky and Guanacos observing us from the distance.Come for the day or stay with the family for as long as you want! The available activities are horseback riding, birdwatching, fly fishing, trekking, enjoying local food with wine!

My father-in-law and I had a great day of fly fishing at La Quebrada del Condor, guided by Polo Rossi of Mendoza Fly Shop. The location is stunning - surrounded by green Mountains, condors soaring overhead (true to the name), fresh air and a lovely...MoreThanks for taking some of your time to do this detailed review.

Killka Art Gallery

The concept behind the design of Killka was to create a first class cultural centre in the midst of natural landscapes, a place as important as Bodegas Salentein's winery itself..

Reviewed By Nelson C

We went to Salentein wine taste and visit. The wine vídeo they showed was superb; the visit to inaralation was good and wine tasting rather mediocre and disappointing. What made the visit spectacular was this art gallery, and the whole aesthetic concept of the building,...MoreGood morning Thanks for your comments, they help us to improve our service.

Monasterio del Cristo Orante

Reviewed By C-Z-1982 - Reno, Nevada

Tiny church with now 4 monks (2 of whom are also a priest) in the middle of nature close to the Andes Mountains. They offer retreats (in silence) and people can join them for Mass. They have small shop where you can buy candles, homemade honey, and wines made from grapes of the monastery. It is an oasis of spiritual beauty in the middle of nature.

Cristo Rey del Valle

Reviewed By Alberta S - Washington DC, District of Columbia

At 4600 feet, Cristo Rey rises 92 feet at the pinnacle. This statue is on a mount that also contains the stations of the cross. It faces the Andes in Uco Valley, just past Los Cerrillos.
A short dive from the road, with great vantage points, it is well worth the time. Our pictures were quite spectacular.

Finca Sophenia

Finca SOPHENIA is an argentine winery recognized as one of the top quality wine producers from Argentina. To achieve its goals, Roberto Luka, its founder and conductor, chose Gualtallary, Tupungato, Mendoza, one of the most prestigious regions to produce high quality wines. The result was quite rewarding and the wines have already been praised by the wine writers in Europe, America and Asia. The wines started to sell worldwide in 2004 and succeeded to reach more than 25 countries.

Masi Tupungato

The tour begins with a visit to the vineyards, where the Venetian varieties Corvina and Pinot Grigio are grown alongside the Argentinean grapes Malbec and Torrontés using organic cultivation practices. The visit proceeds with the grape drying loft: a unique idea in South America, where grapes are laid out to dry on "arele" or bamboo racks in the same method that is employed in the Veneto, in which Masi has internationally recognised expertise. The Masi Tupungato estate offers visitors the unique opportunity of visiting an authentic nature reserve, comprising a botanic garden and centres of biodiversity and conservation containing numerous examples of native flora and fauna. The tour includes a visit to the barrel cellars too, where the unique 600-litre Veronese "fusto" is used instead of barriques, as happens in all Masi wineries. The barrel cellars are unique for another reason: water pours over one of the stone walls to maintain natural humidity and ideal cellar temperatures. On the estate we have places dedicated to the culture of wine and its pairing with food fully equipped to give guests a comfortable and unique experience.

The first thing we were introduced to was a large, hillside xeriscape garden for the study of preserving the water supply. The garden was both beautiful and arid and yet we could see how it will be possible in the future to produce brilliant wines with even better water management. We enjoyed these Malbecs very much and found it fascinating that they have some relation to the Masi's of Italy with a very different result.. In our opinion for the better!
