Travel Tales of Argentina
Is Mendoza your next vacation spot? Great! The Argentinean part of Mendoza is undoubtedly breathtaking. Plus, the region has so many interesting places that you would love exploring this city.
However, one of the things you should definitely do when you land in Mendoza is to go on a wine tour. Since Mendoza is worldwide famous for its wine you will surely love spending your time in some of its best wineries that are mentioned below.
Bodegas Lopez Grimon is a large scale wine production house started by a wine lover, Don German Lopez Figueras. The place was built in the 19th century and it includes a house, service quarter and a winery. The winery covers the largest part of the wide area as the vineyard expands to three hectares. Here the wine is produced in a traditional, home-made style and cement tanks are used to store the wine. The winery is so huge that it stands solemnly overlooking the beautiful national park of Timanfaya.
This family-owned winery has been operating
for three generations!
In the 1980s, Jose Alberto took over the
family business from his father and began producing world class wines under the
label of Santa Julia (named after his daughter). After ten years, his youngest
son started producing virgin oil from freshly extracted olives which were
harvested on the family’s estate.
Hence, the place is well-known for olive oil and wine. You can try both – wine and olive oil – at the family’s restaurant, Zuccardi Restaurant.
Your wine tour must include a visit to a boutique
winery. By visiting to a boutique winery you will definitely enjoy the wines
that are being made on small-scale budget for centuries.
What boutique winery makers do is that they make wines in a more traditional way and due to that their wines taste that much more unique. The best wine boutique you must visit during your wine tour in Mendoza is Carmelo Patti. You will have the most charming wine experience as the wines are originally made from the grassroots. When you visit the place, the owner of the vineyard – Carmelo will give you a lively tour around the place explaining the process of making wine and sharing remarkable stories. Carmelo is known as one of the most passionate winemakers in Mendoza and you are sure to enjoy his company.
This type of vineyard is a little steep but
it is absolutely worth it. Here the visitors get samples of fine wine and the
tour guides provide you answer for all of your questions related to wine.
The art installation “Wine Way of the
Cross” created by Hugo Leytes is the most epic thing you will notice in this
winery. The art portrays the history of wine industry.
