Wineries to visit

Renacer Winery

Renacer Winery

The winery, designed for premium wines production, was built in 2004 in Perdriel, Lujan de Cuyo, at the foot of the Andes range. It’s a fusion of modernity and classicism: well defined straight lines with Tuscan-inspired walls, showing very attractive aesthetics.

Renacer features cutting-edge Italian technology, computerized temperature monitoring, traceability of all processes and the latest equipment.


Renacer is committed in the environment care since the first day and incorporates new technology every day to meet that objective: It is the first Argentinian winery solar energy-using and the first to neutralize carbon emissions and certify carbon footprint.


In Renacer we will take the Winemakers’ Experience: We pretend that, according to various expressions of Malbec, visitors can do their own blend, deciding on proportions and experiencing the results. We want, while understand the complex task of oenologists, you can be proud of making your own wine.


This is a fun teamwork sensory experience.


We will taste: Punto Final Sauvignon Blanc, Punto Final Chardonay reserve, Punto Final Malbec Reserve and Enamoré (Wine made with the "appassimento" method. Vines exposed to dry winds at ambient temperature to lose around a third of its weight).


Terrazas de Los Andes Winery

Terrazas de Los Andes Winery

In 1992, Bodegas Chandon Argentina (founded by Moet & Chandon group in 1960) decided to undertake the Terrazas de los Andes project. After several years of looking and exploring new lands, discovered and identified the best terroirs and the precisely defined height for each grape variety.


In 1999 Terrazas de los Andes is inaugurated, established in the heart of Mendoza, in an old wine cellar restored Spanish-style which belonged since 1898 to Sotero Arizu, one of the pioneers of wine production in Argentina.


In Terrazas de los Andes, it all started in the terraced vineyards located at the foot of the Andes mountain range. As pioneers in choosing the exact height to express the legitimate genuine character of each grape variety, their philosophy has been to identify the best terroirs for Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Torrontes.


That is why combining the French tradition and know-how with the exceptional Argentine terroir, the Terrazas de los Andes team is allowed to extract the intensity and genuine characteristics of each variety resulting in Terrazas de los Andes wines, distinguished by their freshness, intensity and elegance.


We will taste: 2 Reserve Wines and 2 Single Vineyard wines. Mineral water. Handcrafted crackers during the tasting included.


Dominio del Plata Winery

Bodega Casarena

Dominio del Plata is a family winery dedicated to the production of high quality wines. It is located at the foot of the Andes mountain range in the region of Agrelo, Lujan de Cuyo department, in Mendoza - Argentina.


Susana Balbo Wines was founded in 1999 by the renowned winemaker who in 2012 was the only Argentina recognized by The Drinks Business magazine as one of the most influential women in the world of wine. Having dedicated his talent for more than 30 years advising national and international companies in the wine sector, Susana Balbo materialized his dream of a winery in the heart of Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza.


Equipped with the latest technology, Susana Balbo Wines is characterized by its unique and simple design, designed for the production of high quality wines.


Over recent years, Susana and his team worked hard to meet the highest international quality standards, demonstrating its commitment to the most important problems of the XXI century: food safety, sustainability and corporate social responsibility.
