Malbec Wine Tour

Malbec is without any doubt the flagship wine that represents Argentina. Original from Cahors, in South West France, it was introduced in our region by professor Michel Aimeé Pouget in the mid-19th century. Due to the perfect adaptation to our terroir, it soon became the most planted variety. Even nowadays, it is the most widely planted red grape in Mendoza. Some vineyards were planted more than 100 year ago! We invite wine lovers to discover some of the best Malbecs produced in Argentina.

Private Tour - Itinerary:

Today we will visit the different terroirs that characterize Luján de Cuyo, making this area the most famous for the production of our emblematic Malbec.
The trip will start towards the south of the city of Mendoza, being the first visit Achaval Ferrer, a boutique winery that produces only high end Malbecs. The passion and love for the Mendoza terroir gave the kickoff for a group of Argentine and Italian friends to start dreaming about this project in 1998.
Today, Achaval Ferrer is one of the most recognized and internationally awarded wineries.
Our next stop will be at Bodega Renacer, a modern building completed in 2004 under the supervision of the prestigious tuscan winemaker Alberto Antonini. Focusing on Malbec as their emblematic grape, the winery believes strongly in the value of the terroir, making sumptuous and complex varietals.
Later we will have lunch at Ruca Malén winery, recently awarded for having, in addition to their excellent wines, the "best restaurant in Argentina wine country", by the Great Wine Capitals network. A true culinary journey through the best of our local gastronomic culture in 6 steps paired with reserve varietals, including its top Kinien line of wines.
We will return to the city of Mendoza around 04.30pm.
