Wine Tasting in Uco Valley
Uco Valley, Mendoza Wine Region, Argentina
A wonderful full day private winery tour to the spectacular Uco Valley visiting three outstanding bodegas in the region, learning about the wine making process, sampling their wines and enjoying a gourmet lunch with wine pairings at your final stop.
The Uco Valley has been recently discovered as the ultimate terroir for winemaking, with its high altitudes causing extreme diurnal temperature variation. During this private guided tour, you will have the chance to taste high-altitude wines from some of the biggest names in Argentina.
Your first stop is Salentein, which is rich in history and one of Mendoza's most famous wineries, with one of its fincas dating back to the Jesuit missionaries.During the visit, enjoy the chance to sample three of their wines, as well as explore the art gallery. From here, you will head to Domaine Bousquet, whose owners hail from Carcassonne in the south of France and have a long history of wine making within the family. They have been producing wine in Mendoza since 1990 and are well established with their signature elegant wine making style.
Your final winery is Andeluna, which takes its name from the Valley of Tupungato, where the moon can be seen illuminating the Andes mountains. This smaller, boutique winery offers a chance to understand the different methods used for production here, and to sample a selection of these very special wines paired with a gourmet lunch.
