This high-end tour is designed for you to enjoy an excellent day of winery visits and wine tasting with a select group of up to 8 people. The mountains and the beautiful scenery of the Valle de Uco prepare our senses for the distinctive flavours and aromas of these high altitude wines.
Domaine Bousquet: The Bousquet family, who hail from the southern French city of Carcassonne, have a long history of winemaking. In the constant struggle to produce wines of a superior quality, Jean Bousquet was determined to find the best place to continue the family’s decades-long tradition. In 1990 he first arrived in Mendoza to investigate the vineyards and wineries. On discovering the unique characteristics of the region from the soil to the high altitude and the terroir, he was convinced he had found the ideal location for his winery. The main objective of Domaine Bousquet is to combine the European elegance in winemaking style with the perfect cool climate and terroir of the Uco Valley in Argentina.
Andeluna began in 2003 with the aim of making some of the best quality wine in Argentina. Andeluna symbolizes the romanticism and inheritance of the Valley of Tupungato where the moon illuminates the magnificent Andes Mountains. On this visit, you will get to know the vines and the methods of winemaking that make their wines so special. Andeluna is the ideal place to learn about this region. Surrounded by an impressive landscape at the foot of the Tupungato Volcano you will enjoy these prestigious wines and an exquisite gourmet lunch.
Salentein: The land that now belongs to Salentein is proof of the innumerable feats that had to be overcome here; a place where will and the determination were transmitted from generation to generation, from the indigenous peoples to the Jesuit missionaries and even important characters such as General San Martin. San Pablo Finca, one of the properties of the winery, has a rich history dating back to the 17th century. Back then, it formed a part of a farm called “De Arriba” which belonged to the Jesuit missionaries. At more than 1500 metres above sea level, in the heart of the vineyard, lie the ruins of the “Casa Grande.” During the visit to Salentein, you will taste 3 of Salentein’s great wines, and end the tour in their art gallery, which is one of its kind in Mendoza.
Notes: Includes visit and wine tasting in Salentein, Domaine Bousquet and a visit and gourmet lunch in Andeluna: 6 courses, paired with excellent wines. Includes lunch.
